When June rolls around, there's not much I can think about other than packing a cooler up of good food & drink and heading to the beach for a long weekend with family and friends.
Ahead, check out some of my favorite things I'm enjoying this month to kick summer off right!
When looking for an epic girls' weekend outside of the city, the Connecticut's Mohegan Sun is the perfect getaway, filled with endless food and drink options, entertainment and more.
Sol Toro Tequila Grill, Bobby's Burger Palace and Todd English's Tuscany are only a few of the 44 dining options to indulge in over a long weekend.
As a person who takes almost every meal on the go, I'm always looking for new ways to carry food in clean, efficient ways. FreshWork's Produce Saver has FreshVent technology that will keep fruit and veggies fresh for 80% longer than other containers. See ya, plastic bags.
For me, the summer is only as good as the food and beer options in front of me. That's why I'll be at Treadwell Park on the Upper East Side alot in the coming weeks. The endless craft beers, brunch options and apps (not to mention, endless games to play) are the perfect way to spend a weekend.
Don't get me wrong - homemade, authentic sangria is usually the only way to go, but when in a pre-party bind, Beso del Sol's bottled mix can't be beat. The brand, imported from Spain, offers both red and white blends, and even on-the-go Tetra Paks - so you'll never be without it.
Netflix's hit show is nothing new on the food scene, but some recent news has revived an interest in the docu-series.
On Tuesday, the World's 50 Best Restaurants List was revealed, and Italian chef Massimo Bottura took the No. 1 spot for his Modena, Italy spot, Osteria Francescana. Chef's Table's very first episode tells the story of Bottura - how he began his budding career, and the romance that beautifully went right along it. Needless to say, I've been watching this episode on repeat and highly recommend it for any hopeless romantic foodies out there.
