    Rosé is all the rage in July. As summer comes, we return our reds to the cellar in favor of a cooler wine experience. Try sipping at one of these fabulous fetes or venues:  

    42 Grove St (between Bleecker and Bedford Streets)
    Part restaurant, part neighborhood wine bar, part old world café. Buvette is a beautiful, light-filled space perfect for your summer wine sipping! 

    380 Lafayette St. at Great Jones St.
    An airy brasserie designed by Viceroy’s own Roman & Williams, Lafayette offers French fare of the old and nouveau varieties. With their lovely outdoor seating there is no better way to enjoy that glass of rose.

    We’ll leave the interpreting and the reviewing to you…whether you’re an art person or not, New York’s art scene is a great reason to get out of the borough and/or out in the sun!

    Danh Vo, We The People Exhibit | Public Art Fund
    May 16, 2014 to December 5, 2014
    City Hall Park, Manhattan
    Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn

    Why stay indoors to see art?  This outdoor exhibit marries patriotism with art appreciation!  We the People is a life size copper replica that, unlike the original oxidized Statue, still looks copper in color.  The catch is that the exhibit is now in pieces.  Over 250 individual parts (or details) now exist using the original techniques and materials used to make the statue, with more than 50 pieces in Lower Manhattan’s City Hall Park and Brooklyn Bridge Park representing the largest public presentation of We the People to date.

    Insider Tip: Grab a bite at local Luke's Lobster or No. 7 Sub at 11 Water St on The Brooklyn Side!

    Brooklyn Museum
    Ai Weiwei: According to What?
    Now through August 10
    Admission: $15*
    200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY (2, 3 or 4 Train to Brooklyn Museum Stop)

    The Brooklyn Museum is always a ‘don’t miss destination’ with its five floors of art; from its world famous collection of ancient Egyptian masterpieces to cutting edge contemporary artists.  We asked our friend Kathy Zurek-Doule, Curatorial Assistant at The Brooklyn Museum why we should visit this month: “This summer, do not miss the acclaimed contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei: According to What?, [The New York Times proclaims it ‘a triumph’].   Also on view: a site specific installation by street artist Swoon that features a 60 foot high tree and Chicago In L. A.: Judy Chicago’s Early Work, 1963-74 seen alongside her iconic masterpiece The Dinner Party in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.”

    Insider Tip: Note that some exhibits have special admission fees and tickets.  See your concierge for details.

    Saturdays, June 28 - Sept. 7, 3-9PM
    22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, Queens (Take the E, M OR 7 Train to Court Sq.)

    Dancing, drinks, architecture made of fungi and an affiliation with the renowned Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan are just a few of the reasons to visit PS1 in Queens.  Check out ‘hy-fi’, a temporary outdoor pavilion [made of uber-green and sustainable fungi materials] by new york-based practice "the living" the winner of the institution’s young architects program.  “Hy-Fi” is the centerpiece of Summer Warm Up music series, which brings in a variety of DJs every Saturday for the courtyard bash. 

    Insider Tip: We are taking a poll to see if the mushroom-like structure actually smells, as some say, like soup.  Let us know!

    Chris' Picks

    Summer is long from over folks.  We all were forced to stay inside for the most part due to the almost forgotten about polar vortex.  Why not enjoy an outside movie at one of the NYC’s many locations? What a great way to get through the week and have a cheap, yet enjoyable evening.

    Big Hit Wednesdays at River Flicks
    Pier 63 Lawn at W. 23rd St.
    Enjoy watching your favorite actors underneath the stars taking in the fresh air near the Hudson River.  They have a great lineup this summer including award winning films like American Hustle and blockbusters like Iron Man 3. 

    Family Fridays at River Flicks
    Pier 46 Lawn at Charles St.
    Pack a bag of snacks and drinks, bring a blanket and have a night out with the family.  Enjoy classics this summer, films such as Ghostbusters and the Wizard of Oz.

    HBO Bryant Park Film Festival
    42nd St. and 6th Ave.
    Mondays are tough.  Why not kick off the work week with one of your favorite films.  They’ve developed an excellent list this season.  If you can’t get away this summer, dip into your imagination and take a trip with the Griswold’s enjoying National Lampoon’s Vacation on July 21st.

    Asimina's Picks

    No need not venture far from Viceroy New York to enjoy world-class performing arts this summer.  The 16 acre Lincoln Center campus is mere blocks from Viceroy NY and has a ton of summer programming.  Beat the heat indoors in venues such as The Metropolitan Opera House…or venture out to dance under the stars.  

    Lincoln Center Festival
    July 7 – Aug. 16
    From classical music, to opera to Cate Blanchette in The Maids; the summer fare at this Festival has an international flair.  My favorite: the ballet.  As The Guardian states "Ballet, at the is level, is a belief system, and the Bolshoi is one of its cathedrals."  The Bolshoi will be presenting Swan Lake, Don Quixote, and Spartacus, all must-sees for the ballet lover.  Also ask your concierge about The Mostly Mozart Festival Festival starting July 25th. 

    Midsummer Night Swing
    Lincoln Center
    Now - July 12
    Also at Lincoln Center…but a little less serious than the ballet!  Get your dance on with these outdoor dance lessons right in the plaza!  You can opt for Classical Swing, Tango, Brazilian Maracatu, Disco, and Salsa, all with live music. Tickets start at $17 per night.

    Lincoln Center Out of Doors
    July 20th – August 10th
    Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the annual festival of free concerts and events at Lincoln Center.   Highlights this year include a memorial concert for Pete and Toshi Seeger with The Chapin Sisters, Peter Yarrow, Dar Williams and more and the all-day “globalFEST” on July 27th.  Insider Tip: also see your concierge for Target Free Thursday performances on (you guessed it) Thursday nights throughout the summer.
