Right now, there are six short weeks separating us from Labor Day. Let that sink in for a moment, and then high-tail it outside. This week’s Weekender is all about what to do once you hit the curb. Soak up that Vitamin D and enjoy!
To Watch or Not to Watch | Shakespeare in the Parking Lot

Who needs Central Park when you’ve got a park…ing lot! Put on by The Drilling Company, SITPL has been entertaining patrons annually at the corner of Ludlow and Broome Streets in the Lower East Side. Currently, they’re in the final days of their Twelfth Night run. Next up: Othello! Get the 411 here.

End your Saturday Brooklyn Flea/Smorgasburg-ing by hanging around for a screening of From Russia With Love, care of Nitehawk Cinemas. Activities kick off at 5pm, and the event is free to attend. However, you can buy a ‘VIP’ ticket for $12, which guarantees you a comfy spot to rest your bottom, plus some beer and popcorn (score!). Full details can be found here.
Hang Out in Hammocks | Governor’s Island

Governor’s Island is seriously where it’s at this summer. For one, there’s now a space in the park called Hammock Grove, where, you guessed it, you can lounge around on hammocks all day. If hammock-hanging isn’t your thing (or if you don’t have the back for it), enjoy a spot of lunch on Liggett Terrace, the park’s new plaza, which features plenty of seating and public art on view. Full details about the park’s new additions can be found here.
Continue Your Soccer Obsession | Red Bull Arena

Keep the celebration going at Red Bull Area this weekend, where the New York Red Bulls will host English Club Arsenal FC for a special match. This is Arsenal’s first trip to the US in 25 years, so they’ll certainly be coming to win. Tickets are limited, but you may still be able to score some here. Otherwise, post up at your favorite watering hole and get your hooligan on with other fans.
GOING OUT EAST?
Get Your Super Shopping On | Super Saturday

Spend the day supporting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fun (OCRF) in the Hamptons by shopping at this annual “designer garage sale,” which brings together the top names in luxury fashion, beauty, children’s products, and home goods. All proceeds from product and ticket sales go toward the OCRF in their battle to fight Ovarian cancer, so make your shopping count! When you’re done, give your arms a rest from all of the bag-carrying at one of the event’s spa experience tents, or grab a bite with the family and just people-watch. The day kicks off at noon and goes until 6pm. Oh, and it’s hosted by Kelly Ripa and Donna Karan. Tickets can be purchased here.
Have a great weekend!
Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
