WATCH IT: video I peeped this week that you should too
A baby hummingbird fell out of a nest injuring its wing. A man rescued it and nursed it back to health, and in the meantime, mama hummingbird would come by and feed baby while it sat in the man's hands! Pretty incredible.

DO IT: things to put on your calendar this week
Julian Velard is playing two shows at Rockwood Music Hall- tonight and tomorrow, 9pm, just $5 at the door! I've seen him perform at Rockwood before, and trust me, they're going to be awesome shows. Check out the Q&A I did with him here!

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is tomorrow! Get your pasties and your glitter (or at the very least your camera and sunscreen) and get there before the 2pm start to find a good spot to see all there is to see... and there's a LOT to see!

The Red Bull Air Race is this weekend, over NY Harbor. They'll be racing tomorrow and Sunday, with the best vantage points being Liberty State Park in Jersey City or Battery Park downtown. Basically, if you can see the Statue of Liberty, you'll be able to see these planes zipping around at eye level over the water. Zoom!
