SUMMER FUN!
School may be out, but summer is no time to neglect your ABCs. Consider: A is for amusement parks, among other things. B is for bikini wax (the best in town), baseball, and barbecue grills. C is for camping, but also ceviche (you didn't learn that in Home Ec). Our alphabetical syllabus of just about everything to do, see, eat, drive, wear, and enjoy under the sun, taught by such summer aficionados as Martha Stewart (picnic tips), George Plimpton (fireworks), and Le Bernardin's Eric Ripert (grilling). The test will be during your vacation. Failing is not an option.
