7 Dope Things You Can't Miss This Weekend in NYC

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo, amigos!

Today calls for drinking, eating tacos, and more drinking. We’re not complaining, though.

We might totally spend the whole weekend hungover. But, at least we know we’ll have spent it having a good ass time.

Even if you’re not looking to spend the next three days smashed, we’ve got a few other ideas.

Not every Cindo de Mayo has to start and end with tequila. We can dream though. 

Friday, May 5th

1. Cinco de Mayo Boat Party


Remember when Drumpf posted a pic of a taco bowl celebrating Cinco de Mayo? Yeah, we wish we could forget that one too.

This Cinco de Mayo, though, is going to be lit! How does an unlimited open bar with complimentary Mexican apps sound to you? We've got your hookup too with 45% off your ticket when you enter SPOILED45. You can snag your tickets here. ¡De nada!

2. First Fridays at The Frick Collection


Looking to be a fancy artist for the night? Head to The Frick Collection from 6-9 p.m. for a night of fine art performances and talks. Here are all the deets for a night to bump elbows with the Old Masters and art enthusiasts from around the world.

Saturday, May 6th

3. Cherry Blossom Festival

Cherry blossom season is upon us! The budding of these gorgeous flowers, sakura in Japanese, signals the beginning of spring in the city for many New Yorkers.

Each year, RIPA hosts an annual Cherry Blossom Festival on Randall's Island. This Saturday the festival will feature live music, performances, games, exhibitions and more, inspired by Japanese culture.

4. Women in Ink


Liza Donnelly of The New Yorker is bringing together editorial cartoonists Roz Chast, Liana Finck, Rayma Suprani and Emily Flake to discuss the unique challenges of succeeding in a male-dominated field at Women in Ink.

This progressive program is hosted by the PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature. It all goes down at Dixon Place this Saturday at 12:00pm. Grab your tickets here.

Sunday, May 7th

5. NYC Holi Hai 2017

Holi Hai, also known as the festival you need to buy a new set of clothes for, is going down in the city this Sunday, May 7th.

On Governor's Island, thousands of New Yorkers will be running around "painting" each other by throwing around colored chalk. Holi is a day to celebrate love, unity, music, dance and welcome spring with vibrant colors this year. You can grab your tickets right here.

6. Tipsy Scoop Grand Opening

Boozy ice cream is now finally a thing. Tipsy Scoop is serving up your inner alcoholic's dreams in frozen dessert form.

The Kips Bay store is opening up this weekend for 21+ New Yorkers. BTW, if you're one of the first 25 customers, you'll snag a scoop for just $1. You're welcome.

7. NYC Vintage Classics


If you go crazy over vintage crafts and knick-knacks, the NYC Vintage Classics market organized by Grand Bazaar NYC is the place for you. The theme on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. is perfect for Etsy buyers and sellers alike, who love unique vintage decor, clothing and jewelry.

100 percent of the Grand Bazaar’s proceeds are donated to four local public schools. And even though you’re probably going to fork over tons of money on all of those unique vintage dresses, you’re doing it for a great cause! So why not look up more info. on the event?
