Slip & Slide on city streets this weekend!


HOL-EE MOL-EE, you guys!!! Today is a hot, sticky disaster...BUT we have a gorgeous weekend ahead of us. Summer Streets kicks off on Saturday, and there is what looks like a completely bitchin' water slide at the Brooklyn Bridge rest stop. Tag us on Instagram if you go so we can see who took the plunge!!! You can also create a little junk boat artwork in Madison Square Park, rock out + cool down at a kiddie concert at CMOM, or book a spot (if any are left) at Gallow Green's tea time for kiddies and their fluffy friends. Check out our calendar to see what else is happening in your neighborhood. Have a great time! Stay cool! And see you back here on Monday! Image via Beer Blog.
