Good news everyone! It turns out summer is actually not going to end this year. I talked with Sam Champion and Neil deGrasse Tyson, they conferred with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Katie Ledecky, JJ Abrams and Jacob deGrom, who ran the idea by the Obamas (Michelle, Barack and Malia) and Beyoncé , and they all agreed that it just ain’t right to give up our summer so soon just because the calendar will turn to September, so, fuck it, let’s keep this party going.
This is a relief because we’ve got many more beach days and summer adventures ahead of us, and not enough time to do it. One of those adventures involves our friends at Get Summered, the DJ crew who’s been bringing the party to the Riis Park Beach Bazaar all summer (and sharing their tips on how to make your own hater-proof playlist). Though we all agreed that summer isn’t going to end this year, they’re sending off the “official” calendar summer with a big-ass Fantastic Voyage boat party on Sept. 10!
The four-hour cruise features an open bar, a “floating mall” with food and vendors and, of course, hot tunes to sear in the memories of another NYC summer as you sail by the Statue of Liberty. Tickets for all this cost just $50, but Brokelyn has a pair of tickets to giveaway! Find out how to enter below.
The Fantastic Voyage takes off from East 23rd Street & FDR Drive from 1-5pm Sept. 10 and takes you on a cruise around the tip of Manhattan, into New York harbor and around the Statue of Liberty for all your perfect #boatlife selfies. Hawaiian style attire is highly recommended.
The beats will be coming from the Oh Mama! crew (out of Oslo), and Miami’s Basside, plus the whole Get Summered squad, hosts Kiin and Randy Beerz and flicks by Åklø.

Entries will close on Aug. 31 at midnight; we’ll randomly select a winner the next day.
