Plenty of food specials will also keep you fueled, while live entertainment and music ensures the party goes all afternoon. So snag tickets on GiltCity.com for 40% off at $39 each!
2. iLuminate: The whole family will love this event. iLuminate is an unbelievable glow-in-the-dark dance show. Its performers, who were finalists on “America’s Got Talent”, do amazing hip-hop dances wearing costumes embedded with colorful lasers! Ellen DeGeneres even called the show “electrifying.” So catch one of iLuminate’s final performances at Manhattan’s New World Stages before their international tour starts in January.
3. Le Savoir by Stella Artois - From August 17 through the 22nd, Stella Artois will host Le Savoir, an incredible multi-course dinner + garden party with an interactive performance by Cirque du Soleil’s 45 DEGREES group!

4. Manhattan Kayak - Whether you’re a beginner or expert kayaker, you’ll want to sign up for the ‘New York After Dark’ tour on the Hudson River with Manhattan Kayak Company. As night falls, you will paddle out across the water, taking in the stunning Manhattan skyline as it glitters in the distance. Plus, kayaking is a great work out that sculpts your arms and tones your upper body!
5. Amy Schumer at the Hudson Union - On August 18, enjoy an intimate afternoon with Amy Schumer, the Emmy Award–winning comedian, actress and writer as she is interviewed at the Hudson Union in Manhattan. Once you get a ticket on Gilt City for $49, you’ll also receive a one-year membership to the Hudson Union, which provides an intimate setting for people to engage with some of the world’s most influential leaders, in acting, politics, law and more. At the event you’ll also get a copy of Amy’s brand new book “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.”
