What's Up This Weekend?
The Volo RoundUp NYC Edition is here! Are you ready for some fun?! This is your weekly guide to NYC Social approved events around the City. Whether you’re looking to give back, get fit, find balance, or be a social butterfly, we have something for everyone!
9/15 | NYRR RUNCENTER | 11AM – 12PM
If you’re a runner, this is for you! You will learn a lot of stretching techniques, as well as leave with a deep understanding of the importance of stretching before and after a run. Bring a yoga mat if you own one, but if not the RUNCenter will provide one for you! Happy stretching!
9/16 | Crossfit Union Square | 10AM – 1PM
Weightlifters unite! Presented by J2FIT and Crossfit Union Square, Sunday is designed to offer a space for serious weightlifters to come together, hang out, train hard, and encourage one another. While they won’t exclude newbie lifters, you must be serious about the sport. This is not a coaching session or seminar. Get ready to throw around some weights!
Saturday, September 15 | The Tunnel
This is your all access pass to hundreds of wines from around the world! With a ticket, you will enjoy unlimited tastings all evening! You will also get to pair your wine with interactive games, food, and live entertainment. Session 1 will run from 1-4:30pm and session 2 will go from 6-9:30pm. Get tickets prior! Cheers!
OPENS 9/14 | Museum of the City of New York
Germ City: Microbes and Metropolis is a new exhibit starting this Friday! I would assume this would be of GREAT interest to everyone who lives here in NYC. We all know we co-habitat with endless amounts of germs, but really how many?! What is the history of the relationship between NYC dwellers and the phobic thought of infection? This exhibit will dive DEEP!
Annual Walk for Kids
9/15 | Prospect Park, BK | 8:45AM
The 14th Annual NYC Walk for the Kids hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC will take place this weekend in Brooklyn! This walk is designed to raise funds to provide caring adult mentors for kids throughout the city. This walk is a huge growth event for the program. They already serve over 5,000 kids throughout NYC. This wonderful day will be complete with picnics and lots of fun events. Do it for the kids!
9/16 | Multiple Brooklyn Locations | 10AM – 6PM
Saturday is Festival Day for the Brooklyn Book Festival! Almost 300 national and international authors are in Brooklyn this weekend for their books. They will take the stage and then immediately sign their book following the program. Each session is a first come first serve basis and is FREE. Check the timing and location schedule so you know which authors are speaking at what time and where. Happy reading! (P.S. Reading is good for your soul!)
