And just like that, it’s summer. I’m back to being a nice person thanks to the apartment building finally turning our air conditioning on, and I’m ready to seize the season before it gets too sticky and smelly to walk around. Here’s our picks for the first week of June!
Happy Monday. Nothing like a Tory Burch sample sale to get your week off to a good start, with some pretty great mark downs. Clothingline, 261 West 36th Street between 7th and 8th Aves, 2nd Floor, 11 a.m.- 7 p.m.
Tonight, 50 New York restaurants are gathering in one place to share their finest tastes from around the globe for a Taste of Times Square.

This weekend marks my fourth run at Governors Ball Music Festival.
