First Night At BroMu

Once a month the Brooklyn Museum (among many other museums in New York) hosts ‘First Night’. This remarkable event occurs every first Saturday. It is something to see and something to celebrate with good friends and good food and interesting art.

These are my dancin‘ feet:

They are not to be confused with my ‘just standing there feet’. For one thing, they are on this sick lit dance floor and even if I wasn’t listening to crazy drum beats with hundreds of crazy Brooklynites I’d be dancing, just. because. of. the. floor.

One of the major perks about First Night is that it’s always accompanied with an outrageous dance party.


Oh and it’s open until way crazy late (as I think all museums should be all the time).

Oh. AND all the exhibits are open and free too.

What a recipe for fun.

Here’s the one thing I illegally unknowingly snapped from the Kiki Smith exhibit. It’s a clump of thorns.

No. It’s a heart! Check out that shadow.
“Life is pain. Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.”
Kiki just gets it. In that ‘I hate men’ kind of way. High-five, sister.
FYI – Kiki Smith’s Sojourn is going strong ’til Fall
If it’s been a while since you’ve been to First Night I suggest dusting it off. This is my favorite ‘just girls’ picture of the evening. With all that feminism everywhere it just didn’t feel “right” to document any men.

If you’re in the neighborhood for fun, and for Brooklyn – a beautiful combo. I suggest this white wonder of bloom and spring and Brooklyn – museum that is.

#summerchores This one goes out to @jenmorello šŸ˜˜ 
#onlyinnyc Reuniting my husband with this one million year-old pup was a highlight on our banner blink-and-you'll miss it trip home. Brooklyn, we'll miss you forever. Thanks @kymberella281 & @peckelmann you made this guy's weekend. Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy.
