The Ultimate Central Park Drinking Game

by Liz Martinelli · June 24, 2016

What could be better than a sunny afternoon spent lounging around Central Park? Playing a drinking game while you do it. We have compiled a list of all the usual, and unusual, sights and sounds of everyone's favorite plot of greenery in our concrete jungle to give you a game worth getting drunk for. Grab your bottle of wine (or tequila) and a blanket, find a comfy spot with plenty of people watching potential, and pour yourself a glass. 

Take A Sip When...

- You see anyone wearing an I ❤️NY t-shirt

- A pack of Lululemon moms power-walk by you, finish your drink if they have strollers

- Somewhere, a child shrieks

- That couple cuddled on a blanket goes full PDA

- You hear someone say "I wanna find the Imagine circle!"

- A cop trots by on a horse...actually wait until he's passed before you sip

- Hipsters skate by on rollerblades, finish your drink if you see them fall

- You see a child on a leash

- Anytime you see someone using a selfie-stick

- A man rocks shorts shorter than your own, finish your drink if he has a man-bun

- A marathon star wannabe runs by in an all neon get up

- A parent ignores their child for their phone

- You see a dog walker being walked by their pups

- A nanny tries to wrangle an unruly child into the stroller, finish your drink if it's a Manny

- A child drifts by on a pair of heelys

- Teenagers have an ~artsy~ photoshoot next to some foliage #InstaFamous

- A Pedi-Cab hollers at you

- You spot anyone wearing a flower crown

- You see a group of minors sparking up on the grass

- You stumble upon some public workout class, finish your drink if it's Crossfit-esque

- You see someone carrying a bunch of balloons, finish your drink if you see them let one go

- A couple rolls by on a "romantic" carriage ride

- You're subjected to some college students' attempt at playing guitar

- Someone pops the question to their significant other

- You see a living sculpture

- A field trip of children passes by, finish your drink if they are all wearing matching t-shirts

- Anyone struts by wearing a fannypack

- A gaggle of gals carrying Venti iced-coffees set up shop on the grass

Have fun playing, just remember per the rules of the park to keep your chugging discreet.
