Ah, getting day drunk. So fun, no matter where you are or what the weather is outside. However, getting smashed during the day is even more dope in the summer in NYC. If you’re looking for somewhere different to drink this summer, look no further. Here are the best spots you should turn up at while the sun is shining over the Big Apple all summer long.
Take me out to the ball game. There’s something about getting wasted in a stadium setting that just feels right. Both Yankee Stadium and Citi Field are newly outfitted with gourmet food stands – mac and cheese burgers, bacon s’mores, lobster nachos and fish and chips are all readily available. Remember: stadium eats are best eats.
Don’t drink and swim, kids. But do drink and stand in a pool. Rooftop pools in the city will take you back to those regrettable days of Spring Break in PCB. Pool tickets and pool bar cocktails can be a bit pricey, but get your money’s worth by planning to stay the whole day (and bringing a flask), oh and order one of these bad boys poolside.
It’s summertime, folks, which means that biergartens are in full swing. The Standard Hotel has a particularly fun biergarten with affordable brews. They also have ping pong and foosball so try not to embarrass yourself too much. Close your eyes and pretend you’re in Munich.
Located in Rumsey Playfield in Central Park, young and old come together for good music and even better booze. From Father John Misty to Ingrid Michaelson, get ready to get a little tipsy on the lawn. Though there is alcohol sold at the event, this venue is great for a little flask action.
Painting and drinking make for a silly day. Why not try a self portrait of yourself in the summertime to hang above the pong table come fall? Paint Along NYC has affordable rates and is totally cool if you like to drink out of the bottle.
Sunday. Brunch. Jazz. Cruise. Need I say more? Who doesn’t love guzzling mimosas on a freakin’ boat? People who don’t know how to have fun, that’s who. Getting crunk on a boat in the middle of the day will impress even the pickiest of your Instagram followers.
NYC is lucky enough to have a TON of local and hipster breweries. Why not get a little day drunk at one of these? Craft beer is the new thing, so hop on board. Brooklyn Brewery is particularly cool because they have summer happy hours and different events throughout the summer to get you wastey-pants. You’ll be supporting local businesses while getting stupid drunk on tasty beer.
