On our way to a 4th of July party... It's actually the official Macy's party on nbc - look for us on tv!

Hm. I looked. Didn't see you.

I still have a twisted connection with Macy's. Do you know someone who works in the Special Productions office or did we already have this conversation?

No - but Brooklyn Brewery gets some tickets every year, as they provide the beer, and so we got our tickets through them. Susan actually has taken her girls to the City Storage party every year for something like 5 years, now, but this is the first time Macy's invaded.

(And, from my own observations plus her commentary, they only made it worse - it had many more people, much less organization, and was much less fun for the kids.

Last year as I understand there was a bouncy house, and a ferris wheel, and other rides, and they were all free. The food was similar, but with the same number of food stalls but something like 1/5 of the people, it was much faster and much more pleasant, getting to the food.

Plus, they kept everything within the gates, which were closed after the beginning, so the kids could run around with minimal supervision and have fun without worries. This year, it was a zoo, and stretched down the block, so that was impossible.

Still, there's probably no better place to actually view the fireworks. Next year if Macy's is still involved we're probably going to skip the party and just show up in time to see the fireworks.)
