A Boozy Brunch By Boat

Brunch

Looking for a unique way to take in NYC while also enjoying brunch and a cocktail? Look no further; every Saturday and Sunday, Classic Harbor Line offers buffet brunch cruises around Manhattan. For over two and a half hours, indulge in a delicious spread featuring New York’s favorite brunch food, and enjoy a complimentary champagne, Bloody Mary, or Mimosa while taking in the sights of the city. Highlights include the George Washington Bridge, Battery Park and Financial District, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and Roosevelt Island. And don’t worry about the cold winter chill, either. The boat has indoor seating— and plenty of cocktails— to keep you nice and warm. Tickets can sell out, so be sure to secure your spot ahead of time. Discounted tickets can be purchased here. The cruise is $68 for adults and departs from Chelsea Piers (Pier 62 - W. 22nd and Hudson River).  Don’t miss out on this one of a kind experience!

Arrive on the Boardwalk at Stillwell Avenue before the event starts at 1pm and bring a change of very warm clothes for after your dip. There is a suggested donation of $40 to participate. If you don't think you can handle the cold water, you can still go watch while all bundled up!

New Year's Eve in Times Square

December 28, 2016

MDNY_599px-New_Year_Ball_Drop_Event_for_2012_at_Times_Square
The New Year is right around the corner and it's time to start making plans. If you want to be where all the action is in Times Square then you should have a solid plan and even a back-up plan if your original plan doesn't work. It gets very crowded early in the day and there are certain security restrictions that prevent you from bringing large backpacks and alcohol. So if you want to drink champagne while celebrating, this may not be the activity for you. The best viewing areas fill up by early afternoon. However, once you are barricaded in, you cannot get your spot back and there are no public restrooms in the area, so make sure you go before or lose your spot. Also, make sure to check the weather and dress sensibly. If it's going to be very cold, dress in more layers than you think you'll need. For more tips and information, visit the website.

Bad memories from 2015 that you'd rather forget? On December 28 at 12pm the Times Square Alliance is holding their annual Good Riddance Day to rid yourself of all the negativity of 2016 so you can start fresh in 2017. So bring a picture of that ex you thought was the one, or that mortgage document that's no longer needed and shred it! Even if you don't have physical evidence of bad memories, you can still partake or even just write them down and then shred them! Happy almost-New Year!
