Fall marks the city’s cultural reawakening. Where summer is for beaches, light bites, and rosé all day (yeah, we’ll miss that last one), autumn is for fresh art, groundbreaking theater, invigorating outdoor activities, and—of course—food. To help you make the most of it all, we are giving away fall-tastic experiences—yes, that’s plural—every single Friday this season.
We’ve partnered with the biggest names in NYC’s theater, art, and culinary scenes to bring you tickets to hot shows, passes to our favorite museums, meals at the city’s top restaurants, and tons more. And we’re ready to get started…
For our inaugural Fall Friday (yay!), we’re giving away four incredible prizes to two lucky winners:
Take Selfies in the Sky
One winner will receive four tickets to the top of the city at One World Observatory. (Don’t enter if you’re afraid of heights!) The 360-degree views from 102 floors above ground are truly spectacular and made certain What Should We Do?! editors—all longtime New Yorkers—see the city with fresh eyes and fall in love with it all over again. Awww. You’re going to want to take plenty of #NoFilterNeeded photos while you’re there, and your smartphone-dev may not be up for the job. So you’ll also receive $200 in gift certificates to the best camera and photographic supply store in town, B&H Photo Video. We were really tempted to keep this one for ourselves.
See Art, Make Art
A second and separate winner will receive a full Upper East Side Experience for four people, starting with an exclusive tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Led by Shady Ladies Tours, the two-hour experience is a fascinating look at courtesans and mistresses, as depicted in sculpture and paintings, throughout the ages. The expert guides promise to uncover “the sexy secrets of art and history.” Oh là là! Afterward, treat yourself and three friends to lunch or dinner at our favorite ice cream parlor, Cool Mess, which also happens to grill a killer burger. For dessert, whip up your own customized ice cream flavor (seriously, you actually make the ice cream at your table!).
How to Enter
To enter to win one of these prize packages (we’re feeling very Bob Barker–ish right now), just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with “FALL FRIDAY 1” in the subject line by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 26. (You’ll also be subscribed to our twice-weekly newsletter, which will keep you up on everything that’s happening in NYC and alert you to our next Fall Friday giveaway!) See our official rules here.
