When Friday rolls around, many of us wonder: what is a weekend anymore? The pandemic has had a weird way of rearranging time; days blend into weeks, weeks into months. “Scarcely two months ago the story was so predictable, the narrative so known,” writes Adam Gopnik. “Hard Mondays, even Tuesdays, pleasurably ordinary Wednesdays. And then the pure happi­ness of Fridays, their sense of release still carried over like a sum from elementary school days.” At the link in our bio, Gopnik explores how rituals, routines, and structure have shifted. "There are no more weeks or weekends—but the articulation of time within each day has become more specific and eloquent than ever before. We have traded the shape of every week for the architecture of the hours."

Today would’ve been John F. Kennedy’s 103rd birthday. In the last year of his life, President Kennedy gave the commencement address at American University, offering a moving sentiment that feels especially relevant today. “So, let us not be blind to our differences, but let us also direct attention to our common interests and the means by which those differences can be resolved. And if we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity. For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.”

Black tie and chill? No dress code, no live auction, no bad seats; yes to helping a good cause and peeking at Cate Blanchett's bookshelf. Maybe a benefit on screen isn't so bad? With more events cancelled everyday, organizations are finding creative ways to keep the spirit of their celebrations alive, and galas are getting in on the virtual hosting game. “BAM will end up raising over a million dollars from its free virtual gala," writes T&C contributor @thebobmorris. "That’s something to make this curmudgeon put down his martini and dance. Alone and unshaven, yes, but feeling part of something worth celebrating in a big and exuberant way, especially in dark times.” At the link in our bio, Morris delves deep into the unforeseen joys of virtual galas.

It’s been 90 years since the Chrysler Building was completed in New York City’s Turtle Bay. Just after the 77-story architectural masterpiece was completed, a 125-foot tall spire was added to it in secret in order to win the title of “World’s Tallest Building.” To this day it is still the tallest brick building in the world with a steel framework. Here, dancers Ramon and Rosita do the Southampton Hop with the Chrysler Building looming in the background in 1930. 🌆Read all about the complicated history of the Chrysler Building at the link in our bio.
