Once a year, a little slice of awesome unites the world in the vein of pillow warfare! The folks over at the “Urban Playground Movement” have heralded April 7th as “National Pillow Fight” day—cue the universal moan of pillows everywhere! The goose down will fly, merriment shall be had, childhood nostalgia shall return with a vengeance, and someone will most likely get unceremoniously clobbered by a renegade pillow to the dome.
Naturally, NYC has joined the fray, with Washington Square Park playing host to this breeding ground of bedtime glory! The festivities begin at 3pm sharp: so bring your weapon of choice (hopefully a durable, gargantuan pillow specimen), dress the part (vintage “onesies”, pj’s, or bunny attire), and get ready to rumble!
Like the taste of pillow to the face? Then don’t miss out on the zaniest pillow battle ever to descend upon our lovely city!

Thanks to Delicatessen, Washington Square now has a place to satisfy diners in search of noteworthy deli fare. After a quiet opening in late February, this new eatery proudly boasts both traditional entrees, like the smoked fish platters, as well as more original, unique plates like the Monty Cristoberg, a sandwich consisting of challah French toast topped with corned beef, roasted turkey, Swiss cheese, two fried eggs, and warm maple syrup. There's definitely something for everyone at this deli.
