This year's 4th of July, I spent it picnicking in DUMBO (Down Under Manhatan Bridge Overpass), in Brooklyn Bridge Park with some friends. It was such a beautiful day, under the shady trees. We snacked on tortilla chips + salsa, rosemary + raisin biscotti w/ goat cheese, strawberries, blueberries, cornbread, and quesadillas -- as well as some red & white wine. Of course, my boyfriend & I brought the junk food - two bags of chips. We were going to see the fireworks at Battery Park, but instead we lazied around and ended up watching the fireworks on TV and in our local neighborhood.
