Olympic Games Party - Free in NYC

Olympic Games Opening Ceremony
Big Screen Plaza (6th Ave. btw. 29th & 30th St., behind the Eventi Hotel)
7pm
Free

This is basically the best, no, the ONLY ideal spot to catch all your favorite sporting events of this summer’s London Olympics in Manhattan! From the Opening Ceremonies through the Closing, we’ll be screening the best of the best that the Olympics have to offer on an outdoor 35-foot wide screen.
These events are FREE and open to the PUBLIC.

We’re kicking things off with a spectacle of unrivaled proportions for the Opening Ceremonies, including:

Come cool off in our elaborate and super awesome sprinkler systems!
Taste your way around the world with international food curated by the Hester Street Fair!
Play a game of Horseshoes (“A game of HORSEshoes!”)
Grab your office mates and get Tug of War contest going on our Astroturf lawn!
Sip a Greg Louganis Springboard (a double Gin & Tonic, of course)!
Devour our 5-ring Olympic Onion Rings!
Get into Beer Olympics! Beer Slides, Beer Pong, Keg Stands, Arm Wrestling, yadda yadda yadda.
Laugh your ass off at live, improvised commentary of the “funnier” (read: weird, read: RACE WALKING) sporting events
Hot, Abercrombie-ish looking models, wandering around in skimpy, world-flag-themed swimsuits
A very special guest performance from HRH Queen Elizabeth HERSELF! (Not an impersonator, seriously).
