While it’s mid-August, it’s still in the high 80s in New York City. And there are also a few weeks left before summer’s officially over — so we suggest that you stop your complaining and soak up every last bit of warm weather while you can!

In case you need a few suggestions, check out our end-of-summer bucket list of things to take advantage of right now. (Think rosé ping pong, over-the-top milkshakes, and more.) You’re welcome!

Mr. Purple

Rooftop Shenanigans
NYC summers and rooftops go hand in hand, which is all the more reason to spend your last days of summer soaking up rays on a rooftop. And Mr. Purple, located on the 15th floor of Hotel Indigo in the Lower East Side, is the best spot to do so. There’s a small dipping pool, insane city views, and Casamigos frozen margarita machine waiting for your arrival.


Del Friscos Rosé Ping Pong
In addition to mouthwatering fare, Del Frisco’s Grille New York  is throwing outdoor patio parties every weekend through the end of August. Repeat, summer is not over yet! Think rosé ping pong (ummm, yes!), life-size Jenga, giant scrabble, cornhole, and obviously delicious bites and sips along the way.


Spa Carlyle Get Your Tan On (the Healthy Way)
By now, we’re well aware that baking in the sun and tanning beds are not healthy. But we can attest that a summer glow works wonders for the soul. To keep your tan going strong, head uptown to The Sisley-Paris Spa at The Carlyle for the new Phyto-Aromatic Sun without Sun Body Treatment. It entails a magical combination of exfoliation and use of Sisley products — an amazing self-tanner included — to ensure you walk away looking like a bronzed goddess.


Bloody Mary Cruise

A Bloody Mary Cruise
There’s no better way to seize the day than relaxing on a boat, sailing around Manhattan with a Bloody Mary in hand. While weather permits, Spirit Cruises is offering an Eat, Drink & B. Mary Brunch Cruise that sails around the Hudson and East Rivers. Nosh on breakfast, take in skyline views and customize your very own Bloody Mary cocktails.

Treat Yourself
Go to Black Tap for a burger, stay for a shake. While you can treat yourself to ice cream all year round, there’s something to be said about indulging in a scoop (in this case, a whacky, over-the-top shake) when it’s hot AF outside. The Cotton Candy, pictured here, is pretty much sugar overload in the best way possible — and makes for an awesome social media snap!
