The Official Summer Bucket List

Summer Countdown Series: IT'S HERE!!!

“Ohhhh we should totally do that this year!” Yes, we should. This is it—the summer I finally set out to check all those things off my Summer Bucket List that I have neglected in past years. By making this list public to you, beloved reader, I will now be held accountable for finally doing all the things I said I would over the years, and you’ll get to come along for the ride! No more excuses. Even the deadliest of hangovers and humidity will not stand in my way!  Without further adieu… I present the 2010 Summer Bucket List (in no particular order of priority):

  1. A.C. (Atlantic City)
  2. Walk the Coney Island boardwalk.
  3. See the Botanical Gardens.
  4. Run in the Run Amuck Festival.
  5. Party with the Jersey Shore cast in Seaside Heights. GTL, baby!

  1. Rediscovering Emily Dickinson at the NY Botanical Gardens « get NYC'd - June 2, 2010

    […] we took the 20 minute ride on the Metro North Railroad to see the gardens and fulfill my first Summer Bucket List item. As I was checking the Garden’s website for hours and admission (a whopping $20 per person!) […]

  3. Developing a Wine Palate at New York Vintners « get NYC'd - June 8, 2010

    […] After each course you have the opportunity to purchase the wines from the class for a discount. The wines we tasted ranged from $12 to $40 a bottle, providing a nice array of pricing options.  And since this girl is on a budget, I bought the tickets for the tasting through Groupon ($25 for a $50 ticket).  Even at full price, the class would be well worth it given the generous pours and informed staff. I will definitely be back to check out the classes with food pairings (pizza, pasta and cupcakes!) that use New York Vinter’s state-of-the-art kitchen space.  Oh, and check off Number 24 on the Summer Bucket List!
