If you’re looking for a fun activity to beat off the Monday Blues, I recommend checking out the Bryant Park Summer HBO Movie Series. Sponsored by Ralph Lauren and Pepsi, the film viewing is free and a “must do” in NYC. From mid June to mid August, Bryant Park turns into an outdoors theater as locals, tourists, and movie fans come together. The grass opens at 5pm and the movies start at dusk (between 8pm and 9pm). Be sure to grab a blanket, your best pals/someone special, and some snacks! I recommend getting there early, as it gets crowded closer to dusk.
HINT: Men-this makes a great date idea!
