Hello New York Movers,
My, what a week it’s been! If you’re anything like me you’ve been gazing at the stars – and I don’t mean those hacks at the Met gala. Yes, this week’s solar eclipse was a sight to be seen, and what with the death of my soul in the late ’80’s, I’ve developed the uncanny ability to stare directly into the sun. Now if only my maids could look upon me without their retinas exploding I could make some headway on my foyer renovation.
No bother. If you want some cultural events that are certain to please your eyes and your ears, look no further than these salacious offerings.
