Shuffleboard, Roller Skate, Drink Mezcal and Find Yourself in New Media Art

The weather is still hot, but we’re cooling it down with some indoor activities for you to partake in. From Mezcal tastings to roller disco, there is plenty to do without having to leave the A/C.

Below, a round-up of our top things to do this week to avoid the heat:

Head to Mexico…in Brooklyn

Dust Off Those Roller Blades and Get Your Roll On at a Pop-Up Roller Disco Party

Embrace your inner child and skate, dance and drink with world-renowned DJs in the Union Square Ballroom. Costumes are encouraged, so break out those headbands and shoulder pads. Rental skates are first come, first serve.

Friday September 14th, Saturday September 15th in two sessions: 7 PM & 11 PM


Visit a Museum That’s Not the Met or MoMA

Yes, it’s hot and the go-to escape from the humidity is typically a visit to the museum. Avoid the usual suspects, and expand your art knowledge at the Museum of Moving Images. This museum is an ode to the history, technique and technology of digital media via curated exhibitions.

Open Wednesdays through Sundays, hours vary.
