Best of the 4th – Philadelphia and Boston Know How To Throw a Party

Being up in the Northeast, it’s all about the Fourth of July, and the birth place of Independence!

In Philadelphia, they’ll be celebrating in a big way – it’s America’s 242nd Birthday! – the Wawa Welcome America Festival brings over 50 free events, and there will be a huge fireworks show on display over the Delaware River Waterfront.

Fireworks in Philly

There will be a Special Effects show over the Philadelphia Art Museum, and a party on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with a free concert starring Pitbull! I adore him, and we share the same birthday too! There will also be a Historic District Block Party, which is free for everyone. Remember, there are over seventeen museums and attractions open on this holiday – fun and fabulous activities for everyone and their families!

If you’re near Boston, it’s also an incredible place to be for the Fourth of July. The Boston Pops will be performing with Keith Lockhart¬†conducting, and there will be an incredible fireworks display – over 23 minutes of beautiful colors over the Charleston River. They’ll be performing at the hatch shell at the Esplanade.

Earlier in the day, there will be a reading of the Declaration of Independence exactly as it was read in 1776 to the citizens of Boston from the Old Statehouse. It’s another amazing city to be in during this festive time for our country!

Tiny Nantucket, But So Much To Do!

I’m on the Grey Lady, Nantucket Island, 33 miles from the mainland of the United States! What a beautiful spot to spend the summer.

On the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice, Nantucket is the place you want to be! You can bike for miles – it’s a 16 mile island by 3 miles wide.

 

Bike through Beautiful Nantucket

There are many wonderful museums on island to explore: The Whaling Museum, The Shipwreck Museum, The Basket Museum, just to name a few.

The Whaling Museum in Nantucket.

And, this week is the Nantucket Film Festival. It’s right up there with the Tribeca Film Festival or the Telluride Film Festival. There are people coming in from all over the world, to see top Independent films, and commercial films as well. It’s going to be quite a week here!

Don’t miss the Nantucket Film Festival

Originally, the island was inhabited by the Wampanoags Indians, and then the white men came over in the mid 1600s. The oldest house on the island still remains, and is available for tours.

For you nature lovers, there are bird tours, flower tours, all kinds of garden and plant tours…It’s truly a wonderful place filled with natural beauty.

If you’re looking for a little culture, the Theatre Workshop of Nantucket puts on some wonderful Broadway productions, as well as the White Heron Theatre – they are top notch.

Nantucket has a wonderful art culture scene on the island. There are numerous art galleries sprinkled throughout the island, and in the downtown area. The Nantucket Artist Association features the best artists on the island. There are also walking tours on island featuring galleries displaying incredible art – it’s a wonderful creative scene!

Art Galleries abound on ACK

So whether you’re in Nantucket or West Palm Beach, remember, it doesn’t matter where you are – it’s all about style!

Bonnie Takes a Bite out of the Big Apple

I’ll be buzzing all over the country this summer, and telling you all about my favorite places and things to do.

It’s been 6 years since Feinstein’s 54 Below opened their doors, and they have some of the best Cabaret Shows in the United States, not just New York City. Go there on a Friday night – they have a show at 7 PM, 9:30 PM, and at 11:30 PM they have the National Touring Cast of Chorus Line doing a concert. Always interesting – go online to 54below.com to checkout 54 Below.

A night out at 54 Below

Another one of my favorite activities in New York is to go to Birdland on a Monday night and go to the Cast Party! Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch are favorites of mine and I love a chance to see them – they always have incredible people come in and share their talent. It’s at 315 West 44th Street, and it always starts around 9:30 PM. Check it out here!

Live at Birdland

Of course you always know I go to a show on Broadway, and this year, one of the best of the 2018 season is Angels in America, Tony Kushner’s original 1993 masterpiece has returned to Broadway….If you can manage to get a ticket! It’s a must-see!

Bonnie and Billy Stritch

Fun for the entire family, another Broadway Show: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, one of the most fun musicals of the season. Get whisked away to the wondrous fantasy world!

Showing now on Broadway

Another one of the things to top my list is the Georgia Okeefe’s Exhibit that’s taking place this month at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. It will be in their Conservatory, where they’ll be showing some of her fabulous paintings that she did in Hawaii, that haven’t been shown in New York since the 1940s, side by side with some of the most beautiful flowers and plants. A must-see!

And of course, strolling through Central Park can’t be beat! Between the zoo, the pond, the lakes, incredible trees…And of course, those Elms.

Pizzazz and Jazz in Palm Beach County

It’s still a lot of pizzazz and jazz here in Palm Beach County this beginning of June!

Art After Dark at the Norton Museum this week should be wonderful. The featured exhibit includes short films by female directors directly from the Tribeca Film Festival as well as Sundance.

Norton’s Art After Dark

Clematis By Night is a fun thing to do free from 5 PM to 9 PM Thursday night as well. They will be debuting Fairytale Playhouses.

Watch for over a dozen fairytale playhouses in West Palm Beach!

It’s your last chance to see the musical Avenue Q at the Kravis Center this weekend – it’s fun for the whole family! Also, if you haven’t had a chance to go to the Palm Beach Dramaworks, go see Equus – it’s closing this weekend. Riveting!

Avenue Q – fun for the whole family

My movie pick of the week is Adrift starring Shailene Woodly. It’s based on a true story, featuring the amazing story of two people shipwrecked at sea – a must “sea” for sure!

A great romantic film for summer!

 

Always an amazing evening, be sure to go to the Second Year Anniversary Exhibition June 9th at The Box Gallery on Belvedere in West Palm Beach. For further information, contact the owner and artist Rolando Chang Barrero at 786-521-1199.
