It seems like a switch was suddenly flipped in the city, transitioning us from summer into fall. While the Equinox isn’t until the 22nd, we already see crop tops being traded in for sweaters on the streets as the days get noticeably chillier. However, we’re not ready to give up on summer yet and have pulled together some events to make the most out of the remaining days!
Start your week off with a little zen while basking in the great outdoors. Join Brooklyn Grange for an outdoor yoga session, hosted on the roof at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Classes last an hour and cost $15. 63 Flushing Ave. (Brooklyn)
While it may be getting cooler, it’s still boating season! And this Tuesday Grand Banks is hosting “AHOYsters”, a feast to benefit the Maritime Foundation & Billion Oyster Project. The $95 feast includes unlimited oysters, cocktails, and an open raw bar. Get your tickets here. West Edge of Hudson River Park’s Pier 25 (TriBeCa)
Who said doing good and happy hour can’t go hand-in-hand? The Drink For Good Foundation is taking over more than 80 NYC venues this Wednesday, for what they are coining “a conscious occasion for libation”. For each drink purchased, restaurants will donate $5 to support children with special needs in the city. You can find the list of participating establishments here. Cheers!
Mix and mingle in your finest ball gown while dining on burgers and other casual fare at City Harvest’s special event, Bow Ties & Burgers. For more information about this unusual yet delightful pairing event, or to purchase tickets, click here. Center 548, 548 West 22nd St.

Start your weekend right with brunch at the Red Rooster in Harlem. While at this trendy eatery, be sure to order the shrimp & grits — according to Ally, it’s some of the best in the city! 310 Lenox Ave.
If you consider yourself a “foodie” than you’re already familiar with James Beard, the founding father of the farm-to-table movement. This Sunday, we suggest taking a trip to the Greenhouse Gallery, which is offering an exhibit of iconic portraits and vintage cooking paraphernalia to demonstrate how Beard came to be considered America’s First “Foodie”. Greenhouse Gallery at James Beard House, 167 West 12th St.
