As Fleet Week comes to a close, remember and honor those who have lost their lives while serving in our armed forces.

Actors Amber Petty and Tim Murray of Off-Broadway's 50 Shades! The Musical Parody stay in character as Anastasia and José when they choose their Top 10 romantic (read: sexy) things to do in New York on Valentine's Day—and every other day of the year.

When I told a friend I was headed to Green-Wood Cemetery last Thursday evening for my birthday, he accused me of trying to make a point about the cycle of birth and death. But the real reason I was going was much more glamorous: There were to be drinks and music in the beautiful stained-glass dotted cathedral on the grounds, which meant I could not only drink Brooklyn Brewery beer in a church (a lifelong goal) but wander the beautiful grounds with a drink in hand and music in my ears.
