Bourgeois Pig 4 high-res


It’s Friday evening and there is no better place to trade in your blazer for a Bloody Mary than at The Ricky. Soak in the beautiful scenery of NYC as you enjoy the unique craft cocktails on their multi-level rooftop lounge. This is sure to be the new hangout spot as you and your crew enjoy the rotating DJs and take in the Midtown vibes.



What better way to get cozy during an overnight adventure in the Big Apple than at none other than The High Line Hotel in Chelsea? This urban sanctuary o ers guests a European-style setting with a view of High Line Park and gorgeous private gardens. After unpacking, head down to The Bar at The High Line and enjoy cocktails either indoors or on their low-key back patio. Either way, this neighborhood’s best-kept secret is sure to be a treat.



Sunscreen? Check. Beach towel? Check. Summer book? We recommend flipping through “The
Year of the Necessary Lies” by fan favorite Kris Radish. One amazing year in a remarkable woman’s life journey becomes an inspiration for generations when she takes a huge risk, follows her heart, embraces forbidden love, and unwittingly becomes the champion of a winged world that’s on the brink of extinction.

Bask in the sun and in yourself with Montauk Mist, our very favorite scented collection of perfumes, candles, and lotions.
