Labor Day weekend is here, the unofficial end of summer. Hopefully you have off all weekend! Even if you don’t, make sure you get out and enjoy this weekend to the fullest. I have a few ideas for whoever doesn’t have a plan. Try to find a party somewhere, leave your phone on airplane mode (so you can take pics & video without being bothered) and spend some time with the ones you enjoy being around. Have a day for friends and have a day for family.
This is the LAST weekend that public pools and beaches are gonna be open! Get your last bit of tan while you can! Indoor tanning and fake-bakes will never compare to a genuine tan spent from being outside all day. It’s good to get some fresh air too. Need to know where the nearest park or beach is? Check out the NYC Parks & Recreation site for beaches and parks. They list all the hours, rules, etc.

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
So here’s to all the hard-workers out there! Go to the bar, the club, the park, the beach, wherever you wanna go and enjoy this weekend as a celebration of all the hard work you do all year long.
