Where did the summer go? We’re on the cusp of Labor Day already and I haven’t even taken my vacation yet! Here I am relaxing poolside at the Dominick Hotel, enjoying roast pork tacos and frozen cocktails (not shown) as part of a Summer Luau at their Terrace on 7 restaurant El Ta’koy, which serves Hawaiian fare. It was a lovely evening.
Once those long, warm summer days finally arrive, the thought of having a BBQ is incredibly appealing. With grilled burgers, salads, and refreshing drinks, a BBQ can be a wonderful way to host friends and family. But a good BBQ requires some planning to make sure everyone has the best time. Let’s explore how you can plan a fun and successful summer BBQ.
LA-based drummer and superstar drum tech Mike Fasano and I have been friends for over 20 years. Mike is a very generous and fun person and he’s introduced me to so many other cool drummers who have then become friends. He’s always about paying it forward, which why Everyone Loves Mike Fasano! Here I am with Mike this past week, backstage at Pier 17 after his awesome band Tiger Army played a super-tight set of rockin’ tunes. Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s Summertime!
While it’s been hot and steamy for a few weeks already, the official first day of Summer, June 21st, has arrived at last. Despite the inherent stickiness of a NYC summer it is, hands down, my favorite season of the year. Summer ushers in a feeling of joy and freedom that cannot concisely be put into words, and I am so ready to launch into three months of crazy fun. Feel free to share the reasons why you love summer, in the comments!
OK, summer is officially here, yay! For folks living in regions where summer only lasts three months (that is, anywhere besides California or Florida), it’s time to enjoy being outside in the sun as much as possible! Yes, the sun is awesome, but everyone, regardless of skin tone, needs a degree of sun-protection. If you are like me and have a super-fair Scandinavian complexion, sun-bathing and long beach-days are not on the table.
