This is it, FIPSters. The last week of August—Summer's End as we know it. Yes, I've mentioned our favorite vacation season's impeding doom a few times now. I'm really trying to drive the point home that you better get out there and do something before Labor delivers its knockout blow.
It honestly doesn't matter what you do. Just get out there and do it. You have a 3 day weekend with which to explore, adventure, drink, staycation, or whatever your little heart desires. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and live it up.
Let's try something here: write a comment on this article and let us know what your best/favorite summer experience was this year. It can be anything so long as you stepped out of your brownstone and had a gay old time.
The only question left is, WHASSUP? Here's WHASSUP:
Thursday, 8/28, Uke Night, Freddy’s Bar: Grab your tiny guitars—that’s what they are, right?—and get ready for a serious jam sesh. It this doesn’t rock your socks off, chances are you weren’t wearing socks in the first place. FREE, 7:30pm-10:30pm
Friday, 8/29, Ye Olde Wasabassco Renaissance Fair and Stryptease Showe, The Bell House: I’m thinking armor, axes, swords, horses, turkey legs, knife throwing, jousts, and boobs…and it makes me feel weird. $20, 8pm doors, 8:30pm show
Saturday, 8/30, US Open Viewing Party, Brooklyn Bridge Park: Every year I promise myself to haul my ass all the way out on the 7 train to Arthur Ashe Stadium and every year I think of about one hundred things I’d rather do. This year I’m gonna head on down to Brooklyn Bridge Park, snag a brew, and cheer on Agassi as he fights for the title -- he's still playing, right? FREE, 11am until match play ends
