I’ve been dying to play mini-golf for a while. So when I found myselfÂ in the city on Sunday with no plans I suggested to my boyfriend that aÂ mini-golf date was in order.

Manhattan’s and Brooklyn’s Restaurant Weeks are old news, but this seems to be a new one (at least to me) – next week starts Queens Restaurant Week.Â You can enjoy three courses of the diverse ethnic cuisines that Queens has to offer next week for only $25.
