Twerkin' for the Weekend: 7 Most Amazing Things to Do in NYC This First Weekend of 2017

Subscribe to spoiled NYC's official newsletter, The Stoop, for the best news, eats, drinks, places to go, and things to do.

It's only fitting that the weekend with multiple pants-less events would attract a snowstorm to New York City.

We're not going to let you hibernate though. Nope. 

Not gon' be able to do it! Tie on your boots and bundle up because there's too much fun to be missed across the city.

You can even keep your pants on for a few of these.

Also, remember, the best way to generate body heat is byโ€“ uh, well, the second  best way is by dancing. 

Stay warm, NYC!

Friday, January 6th

1. El Museo del Barrioโ€™s 40th Annual Three Kings Day

elmuseo Come celebrate @elmuseo 40th Annual Three Kings Day Parade with us! Register now and march the streets of East Harlem, #NYC with live camels, music and more! (Link in Bio) #threekings #tresreyesmagos #parade #elbarrio #tradition #holidays #elmuseo #freeadmission #3kings2017

This annual celebration to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the Latino community is celebrating turning the big 4-0! This year, El Museo del Barrio will be hosting a parade featuring music, dancing, puppets, CAMELS, and more!

So basically, just come to East Harlem on the 6th for the music, but stay for the f*cking CAMELS. I don't know what is going to happen with/to/at/for the camels, but I am here for it.

The parade route begins on 106th Street and Lexington Avenue and ends on 115th Street and Park Avenue. Several camels were harmed in the making of this listicle (Editor's Note: No. ZERO camels were harmed. They're safe. At the crib. Just chillin').

For the 20th anniversary of the Spice Girls' first single (feeling f*cking old yet?), celebrate at The Bell House in Brooklyn's epic '90s dance party. They'll be serving up shots inspired by the girls themselves.

Best part? It's FREE. It'll probz be too cold to rock that tube top in the back of your drawer, but it's always a good time for platform shoes. 

5. Bottomless! Pants Off Dance Off

houseofyesnyc DOOR IS OPEN! COME PARTY WITH US, GOING UNTIL 5AM!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ‘ฏโœจ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ“ธ: @a.more___

We're not sure what it is about January, but NYC really wants you to take off your clothes. If you can't make it to their bday bash on Friday, House of Yes' pants-less dance party starts at 10 p.m. and rocks on until 4 a.m.

If you're worried about freezing your butt off (or subway germs, that close to your bare *ahem*), don't worryโ€”you can arrive fully clothed, then use their convenient, free Pants-Check to shed your lower garments and inhibitions.

They will also be hosting Butt-Jazzling (can't wait to find out what THAT means), a Spank Station, and an Underwear Boutique, each of which is pretty self-explanatory.

It's also noted that grabbing or touchingโ€”let along spanking, is def not allowed without some enthusiastic consent from the other party. Seriously, do you wanna get thrown out on your bare ass? #ConsentIsSexy

6. No Pants Subway Ride 2017

sophiefontanel - Oรน รงa, un lundi ? It means : "A Monday ? Where do you see a Monday ? I do not see any Monday ? Are you sure sure sure it's Monday ?" #oucaunlundi #nopantssubwayride (rg @fergusondouglas!)

K, we swear, this is the last pants-off-thing on this list, but how could we (or you) skip the infamous No-Pants Subway Ride? It's the 16th anniversary of the No Pants Subway Ride which is... pretty self-explanatory. 

You take off your pants and ride the subway.

But if you don't want to be a PERV about it, you do it in a group and you subscribe here, so you can be in the know on where to meet up with other like-minded pants-less wonders!
