After a chilly spring, summer hit NYC hard, just in time for the flood of events that take advantage of the incredible cultural spaces the city has to offer. Walking around the congested streets in heat and humidity might be unbearable, but the concerts, food fairs, and unique art events all make every summer in the city unforgettable. We've put together a list of our favorite events that any New Yorker will want to be a part of, if for no other reason than to be reminded they're in the most entertaining city in the world.
While you were being #basic at a barbecue or something lame this Memorial Day Weekend, the better among us were showing their stripes in New Jersey at the 2016 Princeton Reunions. Proud tigers through the decades made their pilgrimage back to campus to rep their class years in the famous P-rade, complete with pimped out cars, witty signs, and a blowout performance by The Knocks. Some familiar alumni included NYC social scenesters Nell Diamond and Kyle Hotchkiss Carone, who no doubt ruled the circuit back in college, too. Click through for an inside look at this annual Ivy tradition and be warned...Princeton kids sure know how to party.
Winter was nice, right? Your man stayed at home, getting pale and lacking in the maintenance department.

Yes, of those Santo Domingos, whose wealth we shall never be sure of the origins nor the gross amount.
Nothing screams summer more than seeing a movie on a rooftop with friends, bags of buttered popcorn and bottles of Moët & Chandon. New York City's hottest lounges and cinema clubs are opening their rooftops to us, so we can snuggle and get drunk during screening sessions under the stars.
These days, when a fashion darling turns 30, he or she does it in style. Why spend years pretending you're still 29 and skip the opportunity for a night (or two) of debauchery? Over the weekend, Aquazzura's Edgardo Osorio invited his rolodex of socialite friends to Florence for a two-day bash at the Palazzo Corsini, kicking things off with an Eccentric Jungle on Friday and a certified Surrealist Ball on Saturday.

With all the glass ceilings in the world, it feels good to be a woman in a female-led industry, namely, fashion.
