What do you call a city without water?

The answer? A city without…water…

Imagine a city without water? New York City would not be the awesome New York City without the bridge and ferries! Governor’s Island would not be an island, either! In order to celebrate how awesome water is, Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance is hosting A City of Water Day!

  • WHEN: July 13
  • TIME: 10AM- 4PM
  • WHERE: Governor’s Island, NYC && Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ.
  • COST: Free
  • FOOD: check here for all the vendors!

A City of Water Day will have so many fun activities for families, teens, couples, and friends. There will be a boat tour you can sign up for here. You will have to provide a $3 reservation fee that is fully refundable. There will also be a Waterfront Activities Fair, Free Ferry Rides, Live Music, Amazing Food, Water activities (kayaking, canoeing, rowboats), and more! You can also have your own picnic and ride bikes.

MWA started this event to show that water brings us all together. We should be thankful for water!! This is a great event to learn about the importance of water while meeting new people.

Be sure to check it out! Afterwards, maybe you can go visit the mahattanhenge!

Beat the heat with a Fun Movie!

Who doesn’t enjoy movies? It is a great getaway from the burning sun on summer days! Here are a few that have been (and will be) released this month of July. Let us know how you like em!

1) Despicable Me 2

A personal favorite. Even as an adult, I enjoyed this movie so much. It is the sequel to Despicable Me that was released two years ago. Despicable Me 2 was released on July 3, 2013. D.M. 2 is filled with more action and more funny and heartwarming moments. The main character, an ex-villain, Gru must find a villain that took all his minions! He has a few leads on who the villain is, but he faces so many obstacles! Gru also falls in love, can’t tell who it is!

2) Monster’s University

Children will almost absolutely love this movie! I’m hoping everyone watched the first, Monster’s Inc. In it, Mike and Sulley are best buds, scaring kids, and also saving them. However, in Monster’s University, it takes the audience back in the past, to when Mike and Sulley first met. This unfolds the journey of how they become best friends; they were not close in the beginning!

3) Turbo

A super fast snail? No way. Snails that talk? Snail Indy races? Too much to believe? Released on July 17, Turbo is the story of a snail who wishes to be the fastest snail. He gets his wish, but now he strives to become a racer in the Indy 500. Will he make? If he does, who wins? You will meet so many talented snails!

Definitely a great way to beat the heat! Afterwards, you and your young babe can whip up something yummy at home! Babesta has yummy food making kits that will teach our city babes how to cook while having lots of fun! Check out our chefs post!
