Well, the tardiness of this post might give you an idea of the kind of Monday I've been having. My brother the chef taught me that when a restaurant kitchen is behind, the orders keep piling in, things keep going wrong, burning, being sent back, etc., restaurant staffers refer to it as being "in the weeds." So anyway, I guess you could say I've started my Monday in the weeds - so much so that I'll be procrastinating doing my internet procrastination until Tuesday. I encourage you to do the same...let's ease into this week a bit - we need to get into the relaxing state of mind required for the upcoming holiday weekend!

Only two weeks left to check out the Jeff Koons exhibit at the Whitney! Which is also your last chance to see any Whitney exhibit in the classic Breuer building, before the museum moves to new digs in the meatpacking district next spring. (And to give you even more of a chance to catch it, the museum is ending with a 36-hour marathon from the 18th-19th of October. We can live out our night-at-the-museum fantasies by visiting the Whitney in the middle of the night!)
In a surprise decision, the Supreme Court made same sex marriage legal in five more states today!

After personally spending allllll day Sunday stuck in traffic trying to go apple and pumpkin picking upstate, I'd like to point out that there are great Autumnal activities right within city limits. Check out the Amazing Maze and the pumpkin patch at the Queens County Farm on Saturdays and Sundays!
