NYC: Labor Day Weekend Festivities

Things to Do Over Labor Day Weekend, New York City – Last week was quite a week for New Yorkers from earthquakes to hurricanes to going on a tri-city excursion to find a flashlight, batteries, and bread. All of the antics we went through will hopefully be in our rear view mirrors as Labor Day weekend rounds the corner. With a much needed break from the summer as we head into the fall, Labor Day Weekend is the final weekend to sit back,  relax, and take in some rays while the leaves are still green.

With this weekend sneaking up on us faster than the end of summer, how does one spend their three-day break from the daily grind? Well, have we got some pretty awesome suggestions for you.

Here’s our list of things to do over Labor Day Weekend:

The Hamptons

New York State is no stranger to a multitude of weekend getaways offering you enough of an escape from the city without taking the Oregon Trail to get there. The Hamptons is up and ready for this weekend after Irene invited herself unannounced to the East coast. Put on a sun hat and sip some home-made lemonade (with a little bit of vodka for the adults) on the deck as you take in beautiful sandy beaches and sunsets. The Hamptons offers a stylish getaway for families and young couples alike. Enjoy the breeze on this last weekend of summer. You deserve it.

The US Open

Oh, hi. The US Open is taking place this weekend right next door Citi Field where the Mets play. Get in gear to watch some of the greatest athletes go head to head for the title this weekend. Venture on down to Flushing Meadows, Queens to watch Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, and more of the greatest tennis professionals. Hey, if Anna Wintour ventured to Queens, so can you.

Electric Zoo

Electric Zoo is for our friends who love electronic music. This year’s event has a pretty hefty lineup of musicians, international groups, and enough DJs to put the club scene to shame. Whether you’re looking to groove to a little David Guetta, Afrojack, Tiesto, or Armin Van Buren, Electric Zoo has a three-day event for the serious headbanger. Venture on down to Randall’s Island Park for some serious beat banging.

Serious Shopping

Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out are coming right up around the corner. What better way to prepare yourself than maxing out those cards to look chic from head to toe. Stores are dropping new collections and having serious sales in anticipation for FNO 2011. Get your Amex card out and spend that dough. (P.S. Barney’s is having a Warehouse Sale! Keep it on the down low.)
