A Great Big City

Touristism NYC 2011

Have you ever felt left out when you see tour groups from Ohio wandering the city? Well tomorrow you can join your own slow-moving herd of matching t-shirts by meeting up for Touristism NYC – a wacky flash-mob type of event where otherwise sane individuals pretend to be tourists, complete with faux celebrity sightings, shopping bags from the M&M Store, and an unnatural desire to eat overpriced cupcakes.

Starting point: Brother Jimmy’s BBQ – 16th Street at Union Square at Noon on Saturday, April 9th

Some recommendations for proper attire: I ♥ NY t-shirts, khaki shorts, white athletic socks, and baseball caps from any team other than the Yankees.
