It’s one of those post-long weekend depressing Monday mornings, but we hope you had an epic July 4th holiday filled with plenty of rosé, sunshine, and time with friends and family. It may be brutal to ease back into a full week in the city, but luckily there are tons of fun events around the boroughs. Here’s what we have on our social calendar this week.
Every Monday night, Khalid Rahmaan (It’s Sooo Up & Coming) and LeClerc Andre (Fox TV’s Laughs) present the Unarmed and Dangerous Comedy Show at the beautiful renovated Lucky Cat Comedy Club, located downstairs at the Village Lantern. The show will feature some of their favorite comics from Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and late night shows, along with rising stars from the New York comedy scene. Did we mention it’s free? More info here. 167 Bleecker St, New York, NY
Put on those dancing shoes! Lincoln Center’s social-dance series returns for a 27th season, coaxing novices and veterans alike onto the Damrosch Park dance floor for a season that includes salsa, disco, tango, Hawaiian swing, and rock & roll. Each evening begins with an open-level lesson from 6:30-7:15pm. The live music starts at 7:30pm and typically continues until 10pm. Click here for more info. W. 62nd St. between Columbus and Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY
The summer movies continue with a crowd favorite: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Head over to The Terrace at YOTEL. The movie starts at 8:30 p.m. and it’s a perfect way to celebrate some outdoor Wine Wednesdays on a date night or with your girlfriends. For tickets and more information click here. 570 10th Ave, New York, NY
Let’s be honest, Thursday is really when we consider our weekend started; especially in the summer. So forget about your boring, regular happy hour spot, head out on a sunset after-work cruise for some summertime fun! Get more info here. Skyport Marina, E. 23rd St and FDR Drive, New York, NY
Join the Bitches as we Shake It Off this weekend with none other than Taylor Swift! Our favorite blonde is performing at MetLife Stadium this weekend. More information about the concert here.1 MetLife Stadium Dr, East Rutherford, NJ
Brunch, obviously! Take advantage of the summer sunshine and brunch outdoors. Lately, we’ve embarked on patio brunches at Cafeteria in Chelsea, Upland in Flatiron, and Upstairs at the Kimberly Hotel in Midtown.
For a healthy Sunday Funday, grab a set of wheels for the Tour de Queens. Enjoy a “family-paced” 20-mile bike tour through Long Island City, Sunnyside, Rego Park, Forest Hills, and Corona. The rest stop includes one of Queens’ most beautiful, but overlooked parks, Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village. The adventure starts at 8:00am. Click here for more info.
