If you’re curled up in front of your air conditioner right now, join the crowd. The temperature in New York as I pen these words is 90°, but when you factor in the heat index it feels like 100°.
The good news is that temps are supposed to drop gradually over the remainder of the week, and by the weekend, it should be cool enough to venture out again. The better news is that if you do make it out on Saturday, Aug. 13, you can score a free cannoli from Masseria Caffè in Hell’s Kitchen, with the purchase of a coffee beverage. (May I suggest one of the house’s cold brews?) The offer is good from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Masseria Caffè, 891 Ninth Avenue (at 58th St.), 212-969-0900.
Marriage Ceremony in Aisle Four
When you walk down the aisle on your wedding day, you expect to see flowers and people, not cans and boxes of food. Unless of course you enter and win Aldi’s all-Aldi wedding competition. Aldi, the national supermarket chain, which has stores throughout the New York area, will be transforming its model store near the company headquarters in Batavia, Ill., into the ultimate Aldi-themed wedding venue.
The winning couple will receive travel accommodations, as well as hair and makeup and a professional photographer to capture the happy event. After the ceremony, the newlyweds will be feted with a reception for up to 50 guests. You can find the official entry form here.
