Sewer of love: Tour the Newtown Creek Digester Eggs on Valentine’s Day

Finally, something grosser on Valentine’s Day than rampant PDA

Everyone’s always trying to think outside the box for Valentine’s Day, even though no matter what you do you’re still stuck in its box of heteronormative bullshit idea of celebrating societally approved love for a day. But, we know that shit won’t fly if that’s what you tell your boyfriend instead of doing something for Valentine’s Day. So instead of looking outside the box, why not look inside the sewer, more specifically, the Newtown Creek Digester Eggs, by taking a free Valentine’s Day tour of them this Friday?

The tour through the Digester Eggs, which process and breakdown sludge from our sewage (romantic!), will tell you everything you’ve ever wanted to know about New York City’ sewage system. Which maybe you’ve been curious, who are we to know. There are three tours this Friday, at 9:30am, 11am and 1pm, but sign up quick, because space is limited. The eggs are actually pretty cool architecturally and they’re only open to the public on rare occasions, so even if you’re not one to do things for Valentine’s Day, or if you’re single, we say you should jump at the chance to go. And who knows, maybe you’ll meet someone nice.
