Last weekend to hit the beach
Plan a beach outing with your date. A visit to one of NYC’s beaches is a great way to cool off during the city’s sticky summer. The best part: They’re totally free. The city-run beaches are open for swimming from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.

Karaoke on the Boardwalk
No matter how seasoned a New Yorker you may be, there’s no denying the magic of Coney Island’s iconic Wonder Wheel. And let’s face it: After a long week of work, we’ve all wanted to belt out “More than a Feeling” to a bunch of transient strangers. Why not combine the two with Karaoke on the Boardwalk? Karaoke is the great equalizer of nighttime activities—great singers will share the stage with really, really terrible singers—and the backdrop of the Wonder Wheel (seriously, you’ll be singing in front of the Wheel itself!) only adds to the midsummer magic. Your date will be delighted.;)

The Brazilian Day festival, a spirited annual celebration of Brazil’s Independence Day, marks its 30th anniversary this year with music, dance, food and a sea of green-and-gold-bedecked expatriates. Big-name Brazilian musicians are booked to play the festival’s main stage, which is located on East 46th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues, the heart of Little Brazil. The festival, which draws more than a million attendees, extends far beyond the district’s cozy confines, along 46th Street from Madison to Seventh Avenues and Sixth Avenue from 43rd to 56th Streets. Don’t miss!
