Here’s What’s Weird and Wonderful in NYC (Aug. 30 Edition)
How would we describe our perfect Labor Day weekend? Easy. We’d start off with a drag queen brunch (because, duh), make our way to Governors Island for an immersive art installation, and end the night with a meal — in the dark. Is that not how everyone celebrates the end of summer? Weird. They’re missing out.
