Manhattanhenge II - July 11th and 12th
Louis the Movie Aug 30 (NYC Jazz)

Happy Trails to You 7/9-7/16

There is so much going on in the city in the next several days. I just want to mention a few possibilities here. I've already talked about Manhattanhenge and Shakespeare in the Park in other posts. 

0709001453  Today I stopped at Christie's the auction house to see the preview of the auction of "stuff" from the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum including Trigger and Bullet seen at left. The Auction starts Wed evening and continues during the day on Thursday. If you are in the neighborhood between now and then do stop in.

If you feel like exploring foods in Brooklyn, Myra Alperson is doing a Noshwalk in Bensonhurst.

There will be Philharmonic concerts in the Park on Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday's program is awesome!

I suspect Wednesday will be just as nice and it might be less crowded (I've heard of very few of the pieces).

It is the feast of The Giglio. I have never been, but if I can find some company I may go out there Wednesday night. If not, I'll wait until next year.

I'll be on the buses. Wave if you see me pass by.



I stopped in at the auction on Wednesday. Dale Evan's saddle went for 85,000 - significantly more than her horse Buttermilk. Two or three men got into some serious bidding for one of Roy's ties. I think it ended up at 7,200.
