Labor Day Fun this Weekend

Labor Day Fun this Weekend

There are plenty of things to do in and around NYC this holiday weekend—from delectable dining experiences to worthwhile events and even fun-filled day trips. Here are a few suggestions.

On the food front, folks with an affinity for open-air dining and deals can enjoy both tonight at STK Midtown, where buy-one-get-one cocktails and $10 bites will be offered on its spacious patio. For even more discounts, tomorrow Obica Mozzarella Bar, Pizza e Cucina in the Flatiron District will offera pizza special for National Cheese Pizza Day, including two of its delicious pizzas available for a reduced price.

Brunch enthusiasts can enjoy this popular big-city pastime this Saturday thru Monday at the Upper East Side Mexican outpost Maya, where a bottomless brunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with unlimited small plates and brunch cocktails. For even more Latin eats (plus Asian cuisine), Zengoin Midtown East will also serve a bottomless brunch Saturday thru Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Fonda is celebrating Labor Day with Mexican flair at its Park Slope, East Village and Chelsea locations with Saturday thru Monday brunch, as well as Cocktail Sunday, with $10 cocktails available all night, plus happy hour deals tonight thru Sunday and an all-night happy hour on Monday.

When it comes to events, the annual West Indian–American Day Carnival Parade will take place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn on Monday—drawing thousands to the area for a festive day of music, costumes and more.

If weekend plans include a daytrip out of the city, the Catskill region—no more than three hours away from NYC—is teeming with activities, including adrenaline-inducing fun with the SkyRider Zipline Tour in Hunter, NY. With more than 4.6 miles of zipline, the tour includes five unique side-by-side racing ziplines—the first has participants soaring 600 feet above the valley reaching speeds of up to 50 mph.

For more outdoor fun upstate, adventurers can explore the Kaaterskill Falls—an awe-inspiring destination that drops in two tiers over 260 feet. Make sure to bring a camera to take Kodak moment-worthy pics of the Hudson River Valley from its high perch.
