It’s officially really really hot outside, and with that comes the stank-nasty subway stench of crowded subway cars, the refreshing drip-drops of window A.Cs from above and really high electric bills. Yup, it’s beginning to look a lot like an NYC summer. But along with all these wonderful things to complain about, there’s much to celebrate — take these awesome NYC summer parties, for instance.
Okay so these are not just parties, they’re the best of the best the city has to offer this summer. It’s exactly where you should go to avoid reality. Just be sure to turn your A.C. off before leaving your apartment (ain’t nobody got $ for that).
When: June 3
