A lot of us (myself included) here in Manhattan often forget that hunger in our city and country is still a huge issue to this day, especially with how it abnormally affects children.  No Kid Hungry has a mission to end childhood hunger in our lifetime, and they are taking that thought process on the road for their Dine Out for No Kid Hungry Bus Tour!  It kicked off in Manhattan and will make its way all the way to Los Angeles with several city stops on the way.  Today’s stop saw one of my personal favorite actors and comedians, Kenan Thompson, sit behind the wheel for this amazing adventure.

Tinsley Mortimer has been one of the most fascinating additions to the Real Housewives of New York City cast in quite sometime.  Being in the midst of larger than life personalities like Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel has got to be hard for a newbie on the show, yet Tinsley has managed to make her mark and have this season be one of the best in recent memory.

When the word “Rosé” comes to mind, naturally it can turn my frown upside down, which is exactly what happened this past Friday.  My friend and I went to the Rainbow Room’s Rosé Pop-Up. Currently, it is only popping up this month on Aug. 23rd, 24th and 31st (The Rainbow Room is opened year round) and it was just announced that it will be extending into September on the 19th, 21st, 22nd and 25th.

Jones Beach played host again this year to the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival, where some of the biggest music stars in the world showed up & showed out.  The millennial generation (the latter half, primarily) showed up in droves to make this a sold out event where the big wigs in the music industry came ready to play and give everyone a great time.

Profundo Pool Club, located on the third floor at Ravel Hotel in Queens, is a fish out of pond experience, except this fish is in a gorgeous pool setting amongst some super beautiful people.  Queens Plaza Boulevard isn’t exactly the first place I would think of when the words “heavenly oasis” are paired together, yet after I went to their opening I can comfortably say that this place should definitely be on your radar before the summer ends.

If you are looking for a fun getaway before the summer ends that gets you out of the madness that is Manhattan for a couple of days, then I would definitely recommend heading up north to New England.  A state that I have only visited once before became my destination on my latest travel series for Manhattan Digest, where I stopped by the enchanting and wonderful Lincoln Inn & Restaurant in Woodstock, Vermont.
