Letting a summer day get away from you is a damn shame. Staying inside during the three months of heat is like refusing to take part in free, soul refreshing relaxation. So, right on cue, Foursquare released it’s 2017 Summer Guide.
“You only have 93 days to make the most of summer, so we want to make sure you don’t waste a minute sweating where to go,” Foursquare writes. There’s the best places to “work remotely,” party outdoors, hit the beach, grab a rooftop drink, and, most importantly, the best places in New York City to day drink.
So without further ado, here they are. Go get your day drink on (responsibly, of course).
