Party With Gatsby On Governors Island

Do you like fringed dresses? Champagne? Seer-sucker stripes? Baz Lurhmann's 2013 masterpiece edition of "The Great Gatsby"? Well, here's your opportunity to have all of this and more at the Jazz Age Lawn Party this August on Governors Island in NYC.

Now in its third year, the Governors Island Gatsby party is hosted by conductor Michael Arenella and is accompanied by his orchestra, as well as a number of performers including dancers, singers, and jazz players of world renown. It's not only the performances that are Jazz Age-themed, however: picnic baskets are available for a 20's-inspired luncheon complete with wine, the main dish, a variety of sides, and some delicious desserts. If you're more interested in having a liquid lunch, then you can partake in the party's wide variety of cocktails and wines available, including beer, rosé, and cocktails.

Once you've eaten and drank your fill during the day, party-goers are free to participate in the variety of Jazz Age activities that are presented on the island. Vintage portraits, a good old-fashioned bathing suit competition, a motorcar exhibit, a (boozy) pie-eating contest, dance floors, and a variety of vendors are all open for business, ready to entertain you and your flapper crew. Remember to bring both cash and credit so you are able to buy whatever food or flight of fancy you're interested in!

Tickets to this event start at $45 per person, but if you're feeling bold you can purchase one of their more exclusive packages, which include meals and drinks without the wait. Hurry, though! Tickets go fast, and resold tickets are even more difficult to track down.

If you're interested in getting more information about this real-life Gatsby party, check out the website here. Tickets can be purchased here, and be sure to snap them up soon! August 25th and 26th can't get here soon enough!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
