Things You Can Do This Holiday Weekend

Given the great weather forecast for this long weekend, here's a list of things you can do to celebrate the last unofficial weekend of summer:

  • Paddle your kayak down the scenic West Side... as in, the flooded West Side Highway.

  • Play "Whose Sneakers Are More Absorbent?" You and a friend weigh your dry sneakers on a scale, then run outside into the flooded street for a few minutes. Whoever gains more weight in their sneakers wins!

  • Go to Central Park and attempt to read an entire book from beginning to end... before the ink runs.

  • Bring some friends and play Marco Polo at the underpasses on the FDR.

  • Put several buckets on the fire escape for a few hours, then pour them into an inflatable pool and BAM! Instant indoor pool party!

  • Play chicken with the giant puddles on street corners. Try to get as close to a car's splash zone without getting wet.

  • Drown yourself... in alcohol.


  • Enjoy the long weekend!

    It is going to suck being trapped in the cityt his weekend with all of the tourists in my neighborhood. So to keep things interesting, I think I am going to just run into restaurants and shops and steal all of the umbrellas I can find and watch people run for cover.

    Maybe I'll even offer to sell them their umbrella back.
