Friday Finds: June 22nd

Coming soon: The Color Factory

The Color Factory is coming to NYC this summer and we absolutely cannot wait! This extremely instagrammable art exhibit first popped up in San Francisco last year and was a HUGE hit. The NYC creators will transform a 20,000 square foot space in Soho into an interactive color garden guaranteed to put you in a good mood. Their purpose: to help people appreciate the joy of being surrounded by vibrant colors. This massive exhibit has many different rooms, including a giant yellow ball pit, shimmering disco ball chamber, confetti room, and even a scratch-and-sniff wall!

Rainbow Treats

Continuing our rainbow theme this week, if you haven’t heard, June is LGBTQ Pride month! This Sunday, June 24th, NYC is having its very own Pride Parade. From 12-3pm, supporters decked out in rainbow will fill the streets and march in honor of the LGBTQ community. If crowds aren’t your thing but you still want to show your pride, we found the perfect personal Pride parade for you: a rainbow food tour! Bakeries and restaurants all over the city are introducing special rainbow Pride treats for the weekend, including doughnuts, cupcakes, gelato, and so much more. Daily Provisions in Gramercy has baked a limited-time-only rainbow cruller, Shake Shack is offering a colorful pride cake, Sosta is creating a rainbow gelato sundae, and Baked by Melissa has put together a 25-box assortment of rainbow cupcakes! The pictures alone are enough to make your mouth water… and what’s even better, most of these tasty treats are contributing to worthy causes. Baked by Melissa is donating 10 percent of the proceeds to NYC’s LGBT Community Center. This colorful food tour would definitely be an exciting alternative to your typical Pride celebration!

This ice cream fantasy not only has walls lined with pints of ice cream, but also has life-size tubs that you can climb into. These interactive pints are the PERFECT photo-op and make for the best summer Insta post! But wait, it gets even better – enter the tasting room where you can learn about the science behind the taste and try new flavors. Could you dream of a better ice cream outing??
