Preseason Football

This weekend, America released a collective sigh of relief, and inhaled anticipation: it is football time again. Sure, it’s only preseason, but for those sports fans who just can’t get their fix from soccer, basketball, baseball, and the like, the return of football (and yes, even NBC’s cheesy Sunday Night Football theme performed by the blonde country singer of the moment) is welcome respite, making the end of summer a little easier to bear.

Pulsd is an online subscription service for all things New York, helping locals “discover their city, through interesting and unique experiences.” The good folks at Pulsd curate the best the City has to offer, from exclusive deals and open bars to sample sales and opening nights. Remember, “if it’s cool and going on in NYC, it’s on Pulsd.”

N.O. Sno-Balls

As a fine Gouda is to a Kraft Singles, so is the noble Snoball to a snow cone. Snoballs consist of the finest, fluffiest shaved ice, allowing the flavored syrup to be absorbed, rather than settle on the bottom of the cup, and have been a local New Orleans delicacy since the 1930s. But fear not, Manhattanites! N.O. Sno-Balls brings this delicious southern staple to you! Head over to the Theater District Shopping Court (46th and 8th) and try this taste of summer for yourself, right here in the Big Apple, courtesy of the Big Easy.
