Shearwater Sail

Shearwater harbor sail

A few weeks back we took the kid on his first boat trip around Lower Manhattan on the Shearwater Classic, a boat built in 1929 that has been recognized as a national landmark. The weather, the views, the company . . . all were absolutely lovely.

Ai Weiwei at the Brooklyn Museum

Ai Weiwei, Brooklyn Museum

The Ai Weiwei exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum is titled "According to What?" It's a feast of forms, with barbed political commentary and sharp social satire at most every turn. It's a reminder too of just how lucky we are to live in a society that, generally speaking, doesn't imprison or censor artists who speak out.

Los Perros Locos

Beef dog max perfecto, Los Perros Locos

The aptly named Los Perros Locos, on the Lower East Side, serves Colombian hot dogs. What are Colombian hot dogs, you ask? They're hot dogs made by crazy people. Case in point: the mas perfecto, above, which pairs a beef dog with fried bacon cubes, quail eggs, crushed chips, apple chipotle slaw, and no fewer than five different salsas. You'll feel terrible about yourself afterwards, but while eating it, you won't feel anything but blissful and delirious.

SobaKoh

Hot soba, Sobakoh

SobaKoh, in the East Village, makes and cuts its own soba, or buckwheat noodles renowned for their healthy properties, at least once a day. In the interest of balance, we also ate shrimp and veggie tempura, delicately flavored but nevertheless salted and fried. A little from column A, a little from column B, and so is a very nice lunch made.
