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! There is definitely some fall fun to be had! It’s nearing the end of outdoor activities weather, so let’s enjoy it while we still can!
TCS NYC Marathon Sunday
11/4 | All Over NYC | 9AM
Marathon Sunday is finally here people! THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SUNDAYS IN THE CITY! If you have not watched the marathon in person before, please do it this weekend. Review the list to see the best spots to post up and cheer. All runners need you! When they start dragging their feet, a cheer from a fellow New Yorker is just what’s needed. Bars around the city always have specials for Marathon Sunday as well, so you can make a complete Sunday Funday out of it. Also, you are most likely going to have the urge to run a marathon after watching. I say sleep on that idea!
Cider Week NYC
11/2 – 11/11 | All Over NYC | Per Event Basis
Cider lovers unite! If you’re a cider fan, the amazing events this week around NYC are for you! Produced by the New York Cider Association, Cider Week is designed to harvest an appreciation for orchard-based cider. Taste the different kinds and learn about the lovely pairings with all kinds of food. It’s the time of the year for apples! Fresh cider coming right up!
Chelsea Piers (BK) Run Club
11/4 | Chelsea Piers Fitness Brooklyn | 9 – 10AM
Does marathon weekend inspire you at all? Do you aspire to run a marathon one day? Either way, this Saturday, the day before the TCS NYC Marathon, you can grind out a 5K in Brooklyn and get your feet wet with the running bug. That gives you a whole YEAR to train and do the qualifying races to be accepted into the 2019 NYC Marathon! You could also just run a fun 5K on a nice Saturday mornin’! Post-run you are welcome to go back to Chelsea Piers with Coach Lindsay Ritchings for a gait and stride analysis!
Pumpkin Smash 2018
11/3 | Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island | Varied Times
Join the DSNY, the NYC Department of Sanitation, you know those guys who just get rid of the snow and all your garbage, for the Pumpkin Smash! This weekend there will be opportunities to smash your leftover Jack-O-lanterns in Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. Don’t worry Bronx and Brooklyn, there are times for you, check them out. Instead of just tossing those gourds, you can smash them (and get out some anger in the process). The remains will be turned into compost for the city parks! Wahoo!
