When I was younger, my mom really loved fruit punch.  Everywhere we went — soccer games, my middle school orchestra concerts, Applebee’s — there my mom would be with her plastic to-go cups bought in bulk from Costco (née Price Club) filled with extremely pungent, blood-red juice. OR SO I

FREE: Gold Diggers of 1933 in Bryant Park

The Bryant Park Film Festival is great for chilling outside, enjoying great weather and checking people out. It’s not so great, however, if you’re actually really interested in hearing the films dialogue. Fortunately this week’s selection  should be long on visual impact so even if the noise of the city
