Fun free things to do in NYC This Weekend

This weekend in New York City we are looking forward to these free events - especially two that are focused on free wine! Cheers!

Friday (today!): Enjoy a warm summer's night at the White Party. From 6-8 pm, wine producer Georges DuBoeuf will be hosting a party at High Bar, a beautiful rooftop bar on the west side. Wear all-white and score a free glass of its Macon-Villages, a 2007 burgundy blanc. High Bar is located at 251 W 48th St (btwn Broadway and Eighth Ave).

Saturday: Work up an appetite by taking advantage of the first Summer Streets Saturday this weekend. For all Saturdays in August, Park Ave (and connecting streets from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge) will be shut down to motorized traffic from 7AM to 1PM. Free music, free skate/bikes rentals, and multiple rest stops along the way. Click here for the route map.

Saturday: Free wine tasting of rieslings, zweigelts, blaufränkisch, and grüner veltliners (oh my!). From 2-5pm, Union Square Wines will have various wine producers on hand to uncork these wines for you to sample. Union Square Wines is located at 140 Fourth Avenue (at 13th Street).
