Weekend Docket

Frank Lloyd Wright was gone six months before the grand opening of his landmark creation. Now is the last chance to truly celebrate the Guggenheim Museum's 50th birthday by checking out the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit, which includes many of his drawings being showcased for the first time in public. We've always been lured into his architectural nuances from time spent in Chicago to Scottsdale's Taliesin West.We've procrastinated long enough. The exhibit runs only through this Sunday, August 23.

Time to pack up our favorite Rogue's Gallery tote and head out to Long Island. There's a 40% chance of rain on Saturday but Sunday is looking clear (for now at least). For those not heading out to the Hamptons, Jones Beach is one of those special spots with fine, white sands and void of silly things like beach passes.
