Happy Labor Day!

After a long, hot summer in NYC, we're ready for Labor Day Weekend! It’s time to take those picnic baskets and red gingham table cloths and head to the beach (even if it's raining). Time to sip on some Mfa Lemonade*, eat fresh watermelon, and enjoy the extra time off.

*Mfa Lemonade recipe:
1 cool, frosty glass
2 shots of vodka (chilled, of course)
3 solid ice cubes
4 oz lemonade
