Plus, you’ll find some exciting ways to make the most of the season.

Mix up a Cocktail

Send the Kids to Camp

Starting July 8, Williams-Sonoma is running four weeks of Junior Chef Cooking Camps for kids. Weekly themes include “Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner,” “Around the World,” “Everyday Meals,” and “Destination Italy.” Each four-day-long session costs $125 per child and takes place from noon to 1 p.m. Monday to Thursday. Kids can get an appreciation of world cuisines and learn essential cooking skills.

Think Pink

It’s the season for rosé all day. From June 21 through September 21, Bouchon Bakery Café is offering a special rosé menu with options by the glass, carafe, and bottle. Look for a light-bodied Minuty Rosé from Côtes de Provence, a smooth but sweet Kiwi Cuvée from the Loire Valley, and more. It's the next best thing to booking a flight to the Mediterranean.

Have a Picnic

Nothing says “summer” like a picnic in Central Park, which is right by The Shops at Columbus Circle. Head to Whole Foods Market, where you’ll find all the fixings you need for the ultimate summer spread, from a vegan chicken salad sandwich ($6.99) to Cajun potato salad ($5.99). Wash it all down with Harmless Coconut Water ($4.99), the perfect way to stay cool on the hottest New York day.

 

Swim and Stay Trim

Who needs the beach when you’ve got Equinox? This fitness center is like an urban resort, thanks to its junior Olympic-sized pool — perfect for cooling off — as well as its spa, juice bar, kids club, and fitness programming. And check out the new group fitness class, Band Burn, a Pilates Reformer-like experience that will make sure you’re bikini ready in no time.
