The alternative title of this post could be, “How NOT to have a crazy evening at home.”
In the city, there is always a lot going on, much of it for free. The Brooklyn Public Library has Thursday evening Swing Dancing in out in the plaza. Although I knew Kiddo wouldn’t want to dance (he made this clear to me several times), I really wanted to hear the music. There is a different live band every week and I love swing music. If you live in Brooklyn, check out their remaining swing music events.
It has been a hot summer, but last Thursday was not humid, so it was lovely to be out and about.
After checking out some books, we read in the plaza while waiting for the music.
I won’t go so far as to say it was a relaxing evening — let’s not go crazy, I was looking after small children, remember? — but it was a great summer evening, to be sure. I love when we get home right at bedtime because that means there is no downtime for the kids to go bonkers.
I would also love to spend my summer evenings on this roof deck I spotted. A glass of wine in hand would be delightful.
How have you been spending your summer evenings? I’d love to know.
