So take advantage of all that NYC has to offer, especially the warm sun, awesome parties, Pride, endless glitter, yummy brunch and well-deserved mimosas.
Plus, everyone from history buffs to Trump-tweet fans have an event just for them. This weekend is gonna be YUGE!
Friday, June 16th
Many U.S. presidents have been honored in the past with their very own libraries. Donald Trump is now part of that long-running tradition probably in the best and most deserving way possible.
Comedy Central's The Daily Show has opened the 45th president's hilarious Twitter library down the street from Trump Tower at 3 West 57th St. For free, you can admire and laugh at the Commander in Chief's priceless tweets. Unfortunately, you can only appreciate everything covfefe until Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. so don't miss this ridiculously historic event.
This probably the most insane night you'll ever have that is surprisingly very quiet.
At this party at the Studio Square Beer Garden in Queens, you get your own set of headphones to jam to three different live DJ radio stations. Take off your headphones, and be amazed by how quiet it actually is...or just laugh at all the people singing horribly to their own songs. Admission comes with one free shot and glow gear to party in style. For just $10, you'll want to buy your tix ASAP.
Celebrate the LGBTQ community and organize to fight for its basic human rights.
The Rally is returning this year at Foley Square from 6-8 p.m. Kick off Pride Week with your historical spot alongside community activists and politicians fighting for this vital cause at this free event.
One of the most bad*ss and progressive U.S. senators is coming to NYC this weekend.
At the Town Hall, meet Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and discuss her new book, This Fight is Our Fight in a compelling Q& A session. Get your tickets here plus a signed copy of her new book.
Saturday, June 17th
Join the revelry and glitter at this annual nautical street festival.
To kick off the summer and celebrate Coney Island's seaside history and art community, come in your best mermaid attire, glitzy makeup and voluminous wigs to the annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade. You can even join the fun by registering the day-of as a marcher or rider on your own float.
