popping cherries 

speaking of springtime activities (get yo minds out the gutter) - the cherry trees are in first bloom at brooklyn botanical garden. if you've never lay down in cherry lane with... a good book. it's well worth the trip. BBG has the foremost collection of cherry trees outside japan. and april and may are the primo months. stake out cherry watch for peak conditions. it's pretty much next door to the brooklyn museum. so you might as well make a day of it and check out the BMA's new entrance and open house exhibition of local artists' work while you're down there.

coachella consolation prize: the 23rd annual cherry blossom festival (may 1-2). a two-day celebration of japanese culture. including taiko drumming, kabuki, bonsai pruning, tea ceremonies, origami, etc.
