One of our partners, Not For Tourists, has several unique offerings on their website this week. Check out the following highlights...



Westside Highway Bicycle Path, by Molly Riordan

Hudson River Park
More a conduit than a destination, you say? Think again, my young pedaling friend.


French Crime Wave, by Sarah Moroz

Film Forum
While you'd never want anyone to steal your wallet or shoot your boyfriend in real life, it's somehow consistently thrilling to watch gangsters prevail on the big screen. Film Forum's French Crime Wave series (which runs through September 11th) lets you indulge your secret desire to be part of something a little sordid without, well, any of the actual repercussions.


Oh La La, by Molly Riordan

Le Barricou
It's hard not to be charmed the moment you enter Le Barricou. Through subdued-yet-trendy music and any number of patrons, it is often the proprietor herself who greets her patrons. Amélie-esque ambiance--tall ceilings, fresh flowers, walls papered in yellowed newsprint--is enough to send one into Francophilic daydreams.


Erotic Pottery, by Jennifer Keeney Sendrow

BrickHouse Ceramic Art Center
BrickHouse is to Color Me Mine as Shake Shack is to McDonald's. It's for people who have longer attention spans, really want to learn about ceramics, and would rather design their own projects than paint in a scene of Disney characters printed on a coffee mug.


Check out their website - they have free downloadable guides, maps, gear, and of course, the travel guide books. Not to mention, they are pretty funny people. I am always laughing when I visit their site, or read their newsletter.
