Cloud City at the MET

Dear Deweese,

Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Nick and I were in the city, as part of our plan to stay put a bit more in 2012.  It was a really relaxing weekend overall and we got a LOT done.  But yesterday, we allowed ourselves to have some fun, too! First we had a delicious breakfast at Untitled with Lori and then we headed to the MET. Nick had never been to the rooftop there, and there is a new summer installation, so it was the perfect time to check it out.  Here are our pics (all taken with iphones, which was a relaxing change of pace):

The installation is called Cloud City and is by artist Tomas Saraceno. It is beautiful and the experience feels a lot like Chicago's Bean. I actually hadn't been up there since Jeff Koon's installation, so it was a lot of fun to revisit the spectacular views. Oh, and enjoy a Summer Ale in heat.
