As if you could ever run out of things to do in New York City there are a plentiful amount of food festivals to keep you fueled during you adventures this summer. Generally a tourist attraction, these festivals crawl with locals looking to experience new and innovative foods. Whether home is a plane ride away or a few stops on the subway, you'll have a tasty story to tell when you there.
Mother's Day is right around the corner, and instead of waiting last minute to make your plans, we've got a list of great deals going on in the concrete jungle that are sure to make your mom's heart melt. From cruises to shows and of course plenty of grub, here's your guide to giving your mother a day she will surely remember!
- Make your mama's heart melt this Mother's Day by booking a two hour brunch or three hour dinner cruise aboard the Hornblower Hybrid. May 13th at 12pm, the ship will sail along the New York Harbor for brunch and at 7pm for dinner, both featuring live entertainment. The ship sails from Pier 40 at the Westside Highway and Houston Street. The perfect gift for the eco conscious mom, this Hybrid has both stunning architectural design, as well as environmentally friendly elements including repurposed and recycled materials, recycled glass Vetrazzo countertops, and low voltage LED mood lighting. The ship also has oversized windows, a viewing atrium, and two outdoor sundecks, giving prime viewing opportunities to guests.
While we boring adults toil away at our office desks in 30 degree weather, a shit ship-load of people are having the time of their lives, bikini-clad in the tropics. Holy Ship! set sail last Friday and pictorial evidence has surfaced of what we suspected was going to be the the craziest cruise of all time. Indeed, it is. With Skrillex, Steve Aoki, A-Trak, Diplo, Jonathan Davis, and Tommy Lee amongst others, we had no doubt this was going to be quite the party. Now there's photographic evidence of what we're missing. Laugh now, cry later? Actually, cry now, cry later.
Listen up Boston! Want to go on a fabulous sunset cruise, enjoy amazing food/drinks, and be entertained by a rockstar? Guess what. You can!
Saturday, September 10th at 7 pm, Winthrop non-profit The FA Project is having a fundraiser aboard Boston’s Best Cruises’ The Voyager III. Boys Like Girls’ guitarist Paul DiGiovanni will provide entertainment. That’s right; DiGiovanni is appearing at this great event during his time off from touring.
Prepare to be serenaded by DiGiovanni’s ridiculous riffs, but expect a new sound. DiGiovanni is switching gears; instead of the alternative/punk sound Boys Like Girls is known for, he’s focusing on a more jazz-and-blues vibe. The energy level will definitely remain high and intense, even though the sound is different – exactly what Boys Like Girls fans expect.
Don't waste away your Fall moping around because summer is over. Take advantage of the pleasantly cooler Fall days and enjoy a cruise to Bear Mountain with Circle Line Sightseeing. From September 17th to October 30th, you can sail along the Hudson River and dock for an afternoon at Bear Mountain State Park. Get in with the Germans with complimentary admission to NY's Oktoberfest.
Come switch up your typical Tuesday evenings with an elegant sunset cruise along the East River on July 26th, at 8 pm. Come enjoy some great food and drinks, music, and a silent auction while supporting the Jewish Children's Museum!
Rain or shine, the boat will leave at 8:10 pm sharp and sail along the East River until 11:00 pm. This wonderful Sunset Cruise Includes:
- Premium Open Bar
- Sushi & Light Refreshments
- Silent Auction With Fabulous Prizes

Ok, let’s get real. Its Independence Day weekend and here at Joonbug we take this holiday very, very, seriously. Our forefathers didn’t fight an entire revolution solely so we could live in freedom. No. They did it so each year we could properly commemorate our sovereignty and celebrate our liberty. And that is exactly what we are doing this weekend! Below are our favorite events to celebrate this 4th of July.
What is a 4th of July party without electro-beats? I’m sure our forefathers would be please with this, uh, “celebration.” Governor’s Island, in association with Cielo, Pacha and Glo Fridays, is hosting a four-day long party starting tomorrow July 1st until the 4th. The event kicks-off with a six-hour (six!) DJ-set by Paul VanDyk on Friday. Saturday will be all about Fat Boy Slim and James Zabiela. As the day gets closer, the acts get hotter. On Sunday Benni Bennassi and Laidback Luke will turn tables. On Monday, Brooklyn born DJ Victor Calderon will swap the (common? Unoriginal?) happy birthday song with some house and a lot of techno. Check out the full line up and find tickets here.
