Looking for last-minute plans to make the most of the long weekend? Or perhaps you’re the organized type, looking ahead this season. However you choose to schedule your time, be sure to fit these activities in to your summer.
1. Set sail
The Mark Hotel is once again offering its sailboat experience for the summer. Spend two hours on the water in New York Harbor, near the Statue of Liberty, dining on a menu designed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten aboard a 70-foot Herreshoff sailboat. The boat can accommodate up to 25 people.
Getting hitched? Florals, decor, and a wedding officiant are also available upon request.
The sailboat experience for two adults is $7,000 including food and beverages. Additional guests are $205 per person. Prices for the wedding officiant and decor are available upon request. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for bookings or more information.
2. Dine out
Rockefeller Center is opening up its most lavish setting to the public for the first time. This summer 620 Loft & Garden will be hosting a series of pop-up restaurant experiences featuring Pebble Bar (a seafood-centric menu from the teams behind Grand Army, Celestine, The Smile, and the Jane Ballroom); Atogirl, a play on the NoMad restaurant Atoboy, featuring an à la carte Korean-inspired menu; and a prix-fixe menu from Brooklyn restaurant Olmsted.

5. Try a New Spot
Be the first to snag a table at chef Angie Mar’s latest Greenwich Village “it” restaurant, Les Trois Chevaux. Labeled an “ode to the great French restaurants of eras past,” Mar has gone out of her way to create a chic dining experience. The space features art by Picasso and Banksy, and is filled with floral arrangements by Raul Avila, the florist and event designer for the Met Gala. She even tapped Christian Siriano to design the staff’s uniforms.
FYI, there’s a jackets only policy for men. But don’t fret if you forget yours at home — Mar has a closet full of vintage YSL jackets guests can borrow.
Les Trois Chevaux is now open at 283 West 12th Street. Click here to make a reservation.
