Galore Guide to Fun in NYC This Weekend
This Saturday, June 21, will be the longest day of the year, which puts an entirely different meaning to “carpe diem”. The weather will be almost perfect, everyone will be out and isn’t a brunch just more fun when you’re on a rooftop? Being stuck inside your 5 story walk-up studio apartment isn’t an option. Whether you’re heading to the Hamptons or just kicking it in the city, here’s a guide to keeping you and your friends preoccupied before that dreaded day called Monday rears it’s ugly head.
This Saturday join Mavi jeans at their Park Slope location for a block party. The block party is to celebrate the brands #Whatsyour brooklyn art competition. Of course no block party is kicking unless there’s food and drink. Stop by and shop, stuff your face or just check out the local artists.
Mavi, 205 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn -June 21, 12 PM.
Word on the street is that the glitziest resort and casino in Atlantic City might be closing their doors as early as August. Revel, which has been having financial issues since the day it opened, warned employees this week that if a buyer isn’t found they will go bankrupt. Hey, their lose is your game. Get your crew together and spend the weekend gambling your rent money away or just lay out at their amazing indoor/outdoor pool. Rooms are probably super cheap and because of Revel’s money strains, comp dinner tickets won’t be hard to score.
He’s baaaaaack. Funny man, Dave Chappelle is doing a 10 show engagement at the famed Radio City Music Hall. Great for a first date or 10th date, go check out his stand up routine that critics are saying is hysterically funnier and much different than his past shows. Afterwards go for drinks and walk around Time Square.
