Fall may not officially begin until September 21st, but now that the kids are all back in school, the sun is setting earlier, and that antsy feeling which makes August feel like one long Sunday is finally gone, New York is ready to settle into the autumn mood. Here are eight events to get you in the spirit of fall:
1. Fashion Week Party with Kitsuné
Fall means fashion! New York Fashion Week takes the city by storm every year. And this year, Fever is offering an exclusive price for tickets to one of the week’s best parties at Capitale.
2. Second Sundays
Pioneer Works puts on Second Sundays every month, but this outdoor indie art and music expo will be more enjoyable when the weather cools down (hopefully).
3. City Winery Concerts
Wine screams fall. A bottle of wine just looks better with a red or orange tree in the background. City Winery is a great venue for wine drinkers because they also give concerts. This Thursday, Tony Award winner Ann Hampton Calloway is performing.
4. Bus and Tailgate for Jets vs. Browns
Fall means football! Even though it’s technically still the pre-season, you can still get riled up. TailBus is running a trip to MetLife stadium this weekend to see the Jets play the Browns. Your ticket includes round-trip transportation, admission to the game, food and beverages for the tailgate, and swag.
5. Tugboat Race
This event just has so much character. It’s an annual tradition in NYC and it’s happening this Thursday. Toot toot!
6. Distillery Tour and Tasting
Distillery tastings are somehow more and less pretentious than wine tastings at the same time. Like you might find Yale graduates wearing tweed jackets and smoking cigars or you might find just really ratchet people. Check out this tour in Brooklyn to see which one it is.
7. Biking in Central Park
Fall is the perfect time to take a bike ride through Central Park, and if you don’t own a bike, you can get a great deal on a bike rental on Fever. This deal will run until the weather gets cold, so download the app and keep your eyes out for it!
8. Flatiron History and Food Tour
Walking tours and food tours are better in the fall. Nobody wants to sweat while they’re walking or while they’re eating. Your ticket for this tour includes full portion tastings at six different restaurants, so it’s definitely worth the price.
