Where to Have Labor Day Weekend Fun Without Leaving the City

The city will become a ghost town this weekend as people flee elsewhere looking to grasp a last gasp of summer. Even I will head East for a DJ gig in Montauk. However, if you stay in town, there are a couple of great things to do. 

Top of my list would be the Paradise Garage 22nd Annual Reunion. Of course the Garage was all about the deity that was Larry Levan, and of course his disciples. A recent event calling for “Larry Levan Way” on King Street drew approximately 25,000 people, so this Sunday, August 31, the party should be slammed. It will be held at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street). Expect great music from David DePino and Joey Llanos and a crowd that knows the difference between real and unreal. Tickets can be had HERE

Another must thing to do if you remain in the city, is this Sunday’s Summer Finale of Jonathan Toubin’s NY Night Train. It’s free. It starts at 4pm and goes till 9pm and will be held at The Rockaway Beach Club (302 Beach 87th St, Far Rockaway).

Another great choice is Alice, part deux. This soirée will grace The Slipper Room (167 Orchard St) and will include performances by Amber Martin, Mr. Gorgeous, Sequinette and Vagina West, Nicki Miller, Severely Mame, Macy Rodman, Cassidy Rose and Sarah Waggener and many more! It will be Hosted by Drink ME and Kittened by EAT Me. Patrick Robbins will DJ. 

 The fellas responsible for this glorious mess are Brian Joseph Ferree and Eric Laurence Schmalenberger. It starts at this Sunday at 9:30pm and will run till they all fall down. This is beyond wonderful and you should go. Tickets HERE.

Have fun and be safe!
