It seems like there have been a lot of Gemini birthdays in Bushwick lately, and many more coming up! Some of the best qualities about these beautiful Air-sign babies is that they represent duality, are versatile, talkative, intellectual, and fun to be around. They provide great company and are lucky to be born in the budding days of the summer. Find your Gemini- because I know you have one- and take them to one of these top shows (many of which are FREE!!!!).
