Head over to Yankees Stadium, on the first day of May to see the Bronx Bombers take on the Toronto Blue Jays.  Tickets are still available and range from: $5-325. The new stadium provides great views of the game from literally any seat in the house. The food selection has also improved, and is somewhat reasonably priced. You can grab a tasty cheesesteak from the NY staple, Carl’s, and burritos from Moe’s. You still need to get a second mortgage to buy beer.

Music & Entertainment

The Kills At Terminal 5 with special guest Cold Cave  (SOLD OUT)


Doors 8pm/Show 9pm

Terminal 5 is one of our favorite NYC music venues. The space is huge and the sound is pitch perfect. Tonight, indie darling’s,The Kills are playing a sold out show at this venue. The Kills have become regulars on the NYC band scene. If you have tickets or if you’re able to scalp for the show we urge you to check out, Cold Cave the opening act. This Goth/Pop/Electronic group, has a style reminiscent of 80s favorites like; Depeche Mode, and Sister’s Of Mercy. See this band before they blow up. If their performance at this years Coachella tell’s us anything, it is that they will be huge.

Do yourself a favor and check out one of the last true punk bars in this ever changing neighborhood, before it meets it’s demise. The beer is cheap, and the crowd is filled with fun party loving drunks.  Just don’t try to order a Martini, you may get punched in the neck.
