Hit The Rooftop Bars
Hey, the world’s ending, you might as well have a drink. What better place to watch the apocalypse than from a New York City rooftop?
Watch The Movie Version
We don’t know what it is about New York City, but Hollywood seems to love blowing it up. If you want to throw your own party or maybe try to work out a survival plan — just in case — then you might as well watch these flicks to see what’s in store.
Hit The Arcade
You can play out all sorts of virtual apocalypses – so long as you have enough quarters. And basement arcades kind of resemble bomb shelters, don’t they?

Eat Your Heart Out
If there was ever a time when calories, bank balances or health concerns didn’t matter – it’s now. Have that second (or third, or fourth) slice of cake, and blow that last paycheck on the food and wine pairings at Le Bernardin. It could be your last meal.
