Stock Exchange floor closes at 1pm on the 3rd, so that officially rings the bell for cocktail hour
. Lou is coming up on Thursday as well.
Friday, we'll get a bike ride in early. At this point, I'm planning to smoke a couple of chickens and a roast pork for pulled pork sandwiches. Cider vinegar red potato salad, grilled corn, cole slaw, deviled eggs and corn bread. Somewhere I recently saw a recipe for a tortoini cake which looked light and airy. This menu is crying for beer/ale and possible watermelonade.
We're headed into NYC about 6ish towards the east river to watch the Macy's fireworks on the FDR.
Anyone else making plans yet?
