I’m torn this weekend. So many great options.

On Saturday the Bacon and Beer Classic comes to Citifield. We gave away tickets all last week and I didn’t think to grab a pair for myself. See the dedication I have to you! But that doesn’t mean I won’t try to sneak in. Especially after reading the description on their website:

It is a premier experience focused on traditions where one’s nostalgia of baseball meets their love for bacon and beer. As the up to 10,000 attendees walk through the stadium they will get a taste of history through the hundreds of craft brew samples and mouth-watering bacon-inspired tastes local restaurants cook up. Live music will get people dancing, interactive games will bring out their inner kid, and the cooking demos and beer schools

On Sunday, I think I might trek out to beautiful metropolitan Reddington NJ for the Quick Chek Festival of Ballooning. Joan Jett is playing, and it’s her only area appearance. Now the festival is going on all weekend, with America and Three Doors Down playing as well.

Shelli said she's would be going up in one this year

On Long Island, in Manhasset there’s a summer fair happening, and a Singles Pizza Mingle in Huntington. Oh one at Jones Beach too.

And all this week and next, it’s Restaurant Week in the city. Deeply discounted lunch and dinner specials all over. Starting at only $25 for lunch, $38 for dinner. At some of the fanciest restaurants in Manhattan. Nycgo.com has all the info.
