How is it almost August?! Summer has been slipping away so make the most of our favorite season with plenty of long walks in the park, boats on the Hudson, and al fresco dining. The highlight of my weekend was nibbling and sipping on all varieties of bacon at the Bacon and Beer Classic at Citi Field. Eat your heart out at our top event picks in New York City this week.
