my sugar lumps_tomatoes!

They’re finally turning red!!!  Purchased a small tomato plant seedling from the Union Square Farmers’ Market probably a month ago.  It was of the “sugar lump” or “Gardener’s Delight” (looked it up online…haha) variety.  They are little baby tomatoes/cherry tomatoes. The plant was less than a foot tall when I bought it and now it’s 3-4 ft tall. Insane!  After watching the blossoms turn to tiny pea sized tomatoes, it seemed like it was going to take forever for them to turn red, but finally they are getting ripe.  Looking forward to adding them to my salads. Definitely really rewarding to grow your own food to eat.  Have a bell pepper plant starting to grow. Hope that works out too

darwin chair_like sitting on a pad of paper

Chair design made from stack of 200 prints that can be thrown away when worn out or when you’re bored of them.  Fun idea, kinda wish it was just white so I could draw all over it.  Design by Stefan Sagmeister for Droog.

Merchant of Venice (Al Pacino is starring in it this year!) and Winter’s Tale are on the schedule this year.  Gonna brave the early morning line up with the gang in Central Park to get the limited free tickets for Saturday’s show (Merchant of Venice).  Wish us luck!  Check out the schedule this year.

Stumbled upon this Wine Bar/Italian Cafe yesterday in Nolita area. Small and intimate with great atmosphere and outdoor seating.  Had some tasty artichoke ravoli with a pesto sauce.  Started with a delicious Cheese & Vegetable platter (chose the small, but they come in Med. and Large w/variations of Cheese & Fruit or Cheese & Meat.  Food is reasonably priced with large wine selection.  Nice casual place to drop into if you are in the area and need a break.

the dodos @ terminal 5

The Dodos were one of the opening acts for the New Pornographers.  Never heard them until tonight and I love them!  I think they were my favorite part of the whole night.  Love the use of a violin bow on the vibraphone/xylophone.  Awesome sound & creative group.  New Pornographers were good, but I enjoyed the Dodos alot more.  Sorry NP!!  Gonna be checkin’ the Dodos out more I think.
