I went to the Philharmonic in Central Park last week on what was probably the most beautiful night of the year. What a mob scene! The crowd was so large that people tied balloons to their spots so their friends could find them. I guess this a common phenomenon, but new to me since this was my first time there. Tons escaped into the sky.
I liked the music but I have to say what impressed me most was the gorgeous feast everyone packed: baguettes with brie..lots of fresh figs..and wine and champagne in real glasses. Some people ate by candlelight too. I was a little more low end with a veg sandwich, trail mix, and rose in a plastic cup. The ambiance was just as nice though!
