Memorial Day Weekend Adventures!

Three day weekends are magic. They open up a world of possibilities to all the Monday to Friday people of the world. They should not be taken lightly and should certainly not be wasted. So have a cook-out, go on an adventure, spend the day inside on the sofa watching movies because you have not been able to do that for months. See a parade. Do some Pilates! Celebrate those who have died in the service of our country's armed forces by living a full and happy life!

Need some help figuring out what to do? We thought you'd never ask!

In massive need of some R&R? Make yourself stop by the grocery store on your way home and pick up all the snacks you could possibly need. Our favorites are hummus, baba ghanoush, fresh mozzarella, cured meats, carrot sticks, rice crackers, deviled get the idea! Then settle in for some serious sofa time. Time Out New York has a list of the 50 Best War movies in honor of the weekend!

Get outside! New York City is home to over 5,000 different public parks. Grab a blanket, a good book and some snacks (because snacks are important in case you had not noticed) and head to your favorite park for some quality time with the sun. Feeling extra adventurous? Go on an exploration and discover some of NYC's hidden green spaces
