Things to do for October 24, 2013
Mermaids, Cocktails and a Rooftop Petting Zoo
Where the wild weekends are.
This Truck Is Filled with Juice
An online grocery-delivery service has just gotten into the offline trucking business. Which might not be entirely exciting until you realize that the truck is going to be operating in Midtown and carrying things like cold-pressed juices, sandwiches and popsicles. Okay, we probably should have led with the popsicle bit.
A Halloween Party on a Hotel Roof
You do most of your Halloween gallivanting at night. But if someone were to throw a daytime rooftop party that was enticing enough, you might make an exception. That someone: Four Seasons. That party: involves a pumpkin patch, apple cider and a petting zoo. Yup. Rooftop petting zoo.
A Festival for Old Cocktails
Remember that cocktail festival last year with all the cigars and burlesque and gin... Well, either way, it’s back. Only this time, it’ll be at Opera with a Halloween theme. So to recap: new theme, same robust cigars, bendy burlesque and gin drinks.
Where Halloween Gets Competitive
We need you to sharpen a knife and bring it to Cucina on Saturday. Then we need you to grab a pumpkin, carve something masterful into it and win this carving contest (and subsequently, a $50 tab). Oh, and we also need you to not get pumpkin innards everywhere. Thanks.
Nothing to See Here...
Then there’s what’s going on at Cypress Street. Which is... basically a big-top tent containing assorted carnival folk like the fire-breathing dragon boy, the human blockhead and a mermaid. Buy a ticket and you’ll have access to not only the tent, but also the open bar. So buy a ticket.
