Another Hair Salon for Austin St.

The former Brownies & Cream space has been unoccupied it seems like forever. Well, not for long! Another hair salon is coming soon! Thanks to Karen for sending in the news, and pic. Now, whether we need another hair salon in The Hills is a question I leave up to you guys...

New York Pops at Forest Hills Stadium with Matthew Morrison and Megan Hilty

Here are some photos from last night's show. Like last year, it was fantastic, mixing some classical American songs like "Take the A Train," and "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," with some more modern Broadway hits from shows like "Finding Neverland" and "Hairspray." Matthew Morrison and Megan Hilty lended their star power to the incredible talent of the Pops orchestra. As Pops Conductor Steve Reineke remarked, there were more people at the concert this year than last, so it seems word of their new summer home here in Forest Hills is growing and they are becoming a local favorite!





Forest Hills Stadium's Secret VIP Rooms

This is really cool: The best concert seat in NYC is inside this porta-potty

There is no amount of names you can drop, palms you can grease or cleavage you can show that will get you into the strangest VIP room in New York City. The only key you need for this secret spot in Forest Hills Stadium is a 9-volt battery — and the ability to act like you need to go … to the bathroom.


Needless to say, "I want in!"
