Labor Day 2014 Fun Stuff


 

This weekend, Nintendo World (which is the Tri-State area’s equivalent to a Mushroom Kingdom) is offering you the chance to win NES-glory at the official Mario Kart 8 Tournament.

Put the pedal to the metal for a chance to win prizes, throw turtle shells at your opponents and earn more gold stars than you did in first grade.

The open call for competitors begins at 10:45am, and racers are encouraged to arrive early so they don’t end up left out like an oft-ignored brother (sorry, Luigi).

Just don’t rush over so fast that you get a speeding ticket!

The US Open is kind of like it, only instead of soccer they play tennis, and instead of picking an awesomely-ridiculous location for the tournament like Brazil, they pick Flushing, NY, a place infamously known as the backdrop to King of Queens.

If you didn’t buy tickets—or don’t feel like contending with the commute—here are three crazy fun ways to celebrate the tournament!

Bird(ie)’s Eye View

Don’t want to take the 7 train, but wouldn’t mind a nice walk over the Brooklyn Bridge? Catch every serve and exaggerated grunt by watching on a giant screen at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1—plus, you’ll be able to eat, drink and cheer in the ‘stadium.’

Porch Rocker

Watch balls getting whacked Monday through Wednesday on the outdoor screen at Bryant Park’s Southwest Porch. During the tournament, nearby ‘witchcraft will be serving any entree with a beer or wine for $17.

Celebrate Love!

Drink up every point at the Dream Downtown, which created a tennis-inspired cocktail, the Grey Goose Honey Deuce, for the tournament. The vodka-raspberry-lemonade mind bender will be served in their lounge and public poolside bar and grill, The Beach, where matches will be aired.
Dream Downtown, 355 W. 16th Street;

Fun at Jones Beach, there are fishing boats off of point lookout and of course the pool and fun at North Woodmere Park.
