Every year I wait on pins and needles for the Vanity Fair Summer Guide, aka the most comprehensive guide to summer fun in NYC. Last year I was devastated, simply when I found out that the Book Report Summer Guide was replacing my manual for summer fun.
When former Vanity Fair Special Events Manager Jessica Latham has left VF for the greener pastures of Book Report last year, she took her glorious events handbook with her. She teamed up with fellow staffer Annabel Linquist to detail the best outdoor dining, drinking, and events (movies, festivals, concerts, polo matches) happening all over the city. This year, the Vanity Fair issue is back, and I couldn’t be happier!
There’s your best burger joints for when you’re craving bbq, the 10 hottest places to see and be seen this summer, a summer playlist, and all the outdoor movies and concerts your little heart desires.
Overwhelmed by all the sheer awesomeness of it all? My recommendation is to print out a copy, highlight what you’re into, and then start up a special google calendar for all your summer events–you can invite friends to things you think they’d like and set up alerts so that you don’t miss a minute of the sandal wearing, fruity cocktail drinking, outdoor fun.
