Thu Sep 3
When a friend in Beirut posted this pic of his ticket for the Snoop Dogg concert there, I couldn't help but notice that it looked eerily similar to our September cover, which was shot at East Harlem 's Graffiti Hall of Fame. We never knew we were so hip (hop)!
Great deal: IKEA's Wednesday rib night
Wed Sep 2
With summer almost over, my family and I decided to hop the ferry to the Red Hook IKEA one last time to take advantage of its Wednesday rib night (just $7.99 per person!) and complimentary childcare that allows us to eat in peace while the kids frolic in the ball pit. Sadly we found that the ferry is no longer free: It's now $5 per adult (kids 12 and under ride gratis), but you can get that money back: All you have to do it present your receipt on purchases of $10 or more, even on food at the caf, and you'll get $5 off, a fact that's not heavily promoted. The ribs are a little sweet, but the cornbread's great and you can swap the French fries for mashed potatoes or steamed veggies. As always, the kids' meals are an outstanding bargain (99 cents for a dish of mac and cheese or a kid-sized portion of those divine meatballs).
