Happy Monday. We hope you had a great weekend. Getting up into the 80s today with a chance of showers this afternoon — and there might be a little heatwave later in the week.
We asked W42ST readers for their favorite wine bar in Hell’s Kitchen — and this is what they told us. Let’s raise a glass to all of these neighborhood establishments!
The lucky winner of the two tickets for Speakeasy at Bond45 was Brian Mastroianni.
The Manhattan Community Boathouse has added Monday and Tuesday evening hours to their calendar. It’s a great way to get in some exercise and see Hell’s Kitchen from the water.

The Annual Steve Olsen Run for Rogosin was founded by the owner of the West Bank Cafe. Steve is a kidney transplant recipient. This is the 12th year of the event — and this time it’s virtual.
Anytime between now and Sunday, August 15, put on your running/walking shoes, set out on the path (or treadmill) of your choice, and complete the 5K distance. Karin Schall accompanied Steve yesterday — “catching up and enjoying a beautiful Sunday morning in NYC,” she said. Sign up for the Run for Rogosin here…
Happy birthday to Michael William G and Hitti Clough.
