It’s finally Memorial Day weekend here in the US, and just in time, the weather decides to behave itself and we finally have some sun and some heat in NYC! I have been waiting for this extra day off since the last long weekend, lol! It just so happens that this is a long weekend in Trinbago as they had Corpus Christi and Indian Arrival Day. Also, it is the Spring Bank holiday in the UK. This is a true, true “whey de lime”!
So here are 5 things that I am looking forward to this weekend:
DE LIME LIST – The Memorial Day weekend edition!
1) UEFA Champions League Final – Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid in Milan.
This final is the Madrid derby! There will be a massive parade in Madrid coming up this week, but for which side of town? #HalaMadrid
I am going to my university Reunions, which I think is rather unique, in that it is a 3-day event. With a parade…and live performances! I can’t wait to see some folks that I have not seen in years! #IvyTiger #BlackIvy #Princeton
3) Brooklyn Academy of Music – DanceAfrica 2016
This is the U.S.’s largest celebration of African dance and I love it! Besides the dance, the people, the food, the music, the vibes….lots to enjoy. You can check it out, and it is great for the kids.
4) The unofficial start of summer
Have I mentioned that I love the summer, especially in NYC. The place comes alive and there is so much to do! Love it!
I hope to sneak in some extra sleep. Rest and relaxation are very important to life and to rejuvenate yourself.
Let me know what you are doing this weekend! Comment below.
Laters and enjoy!
