NYC Best Weekend Bets (8.10.2017-8.13.2017)
Megan | Aug 10, 2017 | 9:00AM |

Do you ever wake up after a night out and just keep whispering, “Wait, WHAT???” Just me? Okay cool, great! For a quick recap, last night I went on a ghost hunt in Greenpoint and told multiple people (including a camera crew) about my quantum physics-based spirit realm theories and also gave my phone number to a bartender who definitely did not want my phone number! (Don’t you wish you were friends with me?!)

“How can I get on that same level, Megan?” Well, it helps if you just eat a can of garbanzo beans the whole day and then proceed to drink a lot of IPAs, but it’s also a plus if you can get out there in the ol’ public eye, which is where this week’s guide is going to come in very handy! (BONUS: Lost In Translation is screening TWICE! Hence our GIF theme!)
