Announcing: The 24-Hour Big Adventure

It’s that time again! As promised, all the plans are set and we hope that you’ll join us for the 24-Hour Brooke and Phil’s Big Adventure as we trek through the city that never sleeps. This one has been in the making for a long time and the perfect way to give a Gotham farewell to Summer and a NYC hello to Fall.

Brooke and Phil's 24-Hour Big Adventure –

Up, Down & All Around New York City

So, once upon a time over drinks with friends last Spring, the question was asked, what can one do for twenty-four straight hours in New York City? (Aside from watching two dozen episodes of a Kiefer Sutherland packed marathon) The better question, we have found, is what can’t you do in 24 hours?. Below is the brief itinerary for our next Big Adventure. As per usual, all the stops are meant to be a) unique to NYC b) relatively cheap, c) incredibly fun and d) for just about everyone. And, no, sleep is not on the menu. Feel free to meet up with us at any stop on the way. Check back on Monday, September 8th for final details and plans.

10:30 AM-11:30(ish)

Brunch at Kitchenette

156 Chambers Street. TriBeca


Gotta fuel up for the day. This off-the-beaten-bath kinda cutesy, kinda delicious place offers such fine treats as The Bridgehampton – silver dollar pancakes topped with fresh fruit and yogurt.

Noon1:30 PM

New York Transit Museum

(AKA The Subway Museum)

Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn Heights


Five bucks gets you in to one of the most underrated museums in the city. Placed in an actual decommissioned subway station, they have everything from 1920s subway cars to a collage of subway tokens (or just buy the cuff links!)

1:45- 4:00 PM

Tour of The Brooklyn Brewery

79 N 11th St, Brooklyn


Free tour and cheap beer samplings in their custom beer hall make this one a no-brainer

7:30- 11:30 PM

OSU/ USC Game at Stout

133 West 33rd Street, Midtown Manhattan


We’re working on getting a special section (perchance private pool room?) for the biggest college football game of the early fall. Don’t like the pigskin? It’s a great bar with some of the best pub grub in the city

Midnight- 1:30 AM

Upright Citizen’s Brigade

307 W. 26th Street, Chelsea


Five bucks gets you into some of the best comedy improv in the country. Alums include Amy Poehler, Jason Sudekis and more. Each time Brooke and I have gone, we laughed so hard that our noses bled on everyone. Wait…that’s kinda disgusting.

1:30 AM -3:30 AM

Finest Bars in Hell’s Ktichen

Still narrowing the field, but we’re down to Valhalla, Circus Bar, Vinyl and more

scattered throughout Hell’s Kitchen.

3:30 AM on…

Other Events include fine late,late night dining, watching the sun rise in the best location in Manhattan, being part of the Sunday Morning Today Show/CBS Sunday Morning News, Free Outdoor Concerts and much more. 24 Hours in total. Ts to be crossed, Lower case Js to be dotted. Of course, advance feedback and suggestions are always appreciated.

As always, we’ll also have a handful of surprises and a few things to spice up your day along the way. I’m not making any promises, but two people whose names rhyme with O’llama and McDain may be there in person.

Hope to see you on September 13th and 14th! Check back on Monday, September 8th for final details and plans.

-Brooke and Phil
