Read on for our picks for the best eating, drinking, and merrymaking events this weekend.
Ugh Daylight Savings, one of the worst days of the year. Yeah sure, everyone got an extra hour of sleep the one day it took to adjust to the time change, but now it’s back to only seeing the sun when you walk on the right side of the street during your lunch break before it sets at 4:00 p.m. What joy.
This weekend begins with Halloween and ends with the marathon. In between you can attend a food-focused film festival, see your favorite horror movies on the big screen, and sip craft beer.
Festivals, festivals, and more festivals. This weekend you can attend a world premiere, laugh at/commiserate with a famous actor/writer, peer into a hidden world, and get a photo op with your favorite superhero.
Childhood horror stories: the scary stories you told at sleepovers after sneaking out of the house, eating junk food, and playing practical jokes. Now as an adult (sort of), horror stories are what you tell your friends on Saturday morning after shamefully sneaking out of girl’s apartments, drinking too much alcohol, and making one too many bad decisions.
Among your options for fun this weekend are a movie festival, an improvised theater festival, and a craft beer festival. Watch, listen, drink, and be merry.
Mama told you not to talk to strangers, but in this era of online dating, more and more people are willing to risk some awkwardness for a chance at a love connection. Here are some of the best spots in NYC to weed the frogs from the princes (and princesses).
Gentlemen, it’s time to break out the lederhosen. That’s right; a real Oktoberfest is coming to New York, and more specifically to the East River and 23rd Street.
Beer, bratwurst and bar maids. Yes my friends, Oktoberfest is upon us again, and it’s the best 16 days of the year where you get to rejoice your true (or honorary) German heritage and over indulge in sausage, schnitzel and sauerkraut.
It’s almost fall! Celebrate by entering a cannoli-eating contest, learning about wine, and/or wandering around the city’s largest photographic event.
This weekend is all about the festivals. Among your options are celebrations of honey, Italian food and culture, oysters, Nordic cuisine, and street food. With careful planning, no doubt you can hit all five.
Not everyone can make every game, so if you find yourself in need of a massive TV and lively atmosphere to pump you up, head to one of these New York City sports bars to catch all the action.
Among our picks for this weekend’s best eating, drinking, and merrymaking events are opera outdoors, a blues and BBQ festival, and a celebration of jazz great Charlie Parker, some of them free, all of them fun.
August isn’t over yet, but this weekend is your last chance to participate in Summer Streets. In addition to riding, running, or walking down Park Avenue, check out our other picks for the best eating, drinking, and merrymaking this weekend.
In the span of two days, you can see a play off-off-off Broadway, watch dragon boats race, clap along with gospel greats, go under Park Avenue, and try masa in many manifestations.
