Before we get into all of it, let’s talk about what you may have missed on BYT this week if you were being a disloyal reader …

Welcome back to another weekend, you guys! And it’s not just ANY weekend, either; it’s the US OPEN FINALS! I went to the quarter-finals yesterday and it was pretty much the best day of my life, so if you have the means to grab a ticket and go to either the semi-finals or the actual finals, you should PROBABLY DO IT! It’s also #NYFW, meaning this week’s GIF theme is (as with all NYFWs) Anna Wintour. SORRY NOT SORRY. If you’re going “But Megan, I hate tennis! I hate fashion!” then CALM DOWN because there are plenty of things to …

Happy Labor Day Weekend! I hope you’re getting the fuck outta dodge, and/or holing up at many boozy BBQs, but if not, you’ve got plenty of things to look forward to the next couple of days! I’m also going to treat this as though you are like me, and holiday weekends mean next to nothing; I’ll be posting your Hit List on Monday as usual, so if you’re looking for stuff to do then (because you did not get the fuck outta dodge and/or are unfortunately not invited to a boozy BBQ) just check back at 11am on Monday. So …

Hi! I don’t really feel like writing this right now, which I guess I probably shouldn’t tell you, but I have had a harrowing week of spotty WiFi and now that it’s functioning properly I basically just want to be watching brain-melting YouTube videos! Also, my pinky finger is bruised dot com from a Pride DIY gone awry (get your mind out of the gutter // I hammered it while trying to build a makeshift cabana on a Crown Heights rooftop because everyone at the party was dying dot com) and it hurts to type without looking bougie AF, so …

WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND! I will be babysitting a puppy (follow her on IG at @poseypupbk) and watching the French Open the entire time, but if I had less of a responsibility to animals or sports, I would most certainly hit up any/all of the below INCLUDING but not limited to Brooklyn Pride programming, Northside Festival and a screening of the OG Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie!

We did it! We (almost) survived a very short work week! And there’s a lot of stuff going on the next few days to get excited about, like the fact that I anticipate a solid percentage of disagreeable people being away at Gov Ball! If you’re going, “But I’M going to Gov Ball, Megan!” Then 1. why are you even reading this?! YOU HAVE PLANS ALREADY! and 2. maybe YOU’RE not disagreeable, but there is a certain kind of person that festivals of this nature tend to attract, and if you don’t know who I’m talking about, I am sure …

Hello and welcome to ye olde weekend! Do you guys hate how much I say “ye olde” all the time? (I don’t really care either way and plan to continue using it regardless, but was just curious.) Anyway, lots happening the next couple of days! I’m going to be out of town for my niece’s Peppa Pig birthday (why does Peppa Pig look like that, ps?) so I can’t go to any of this stuff, but YOU should totally live your best life and get to as much as possible.

Oh hey wow! Welcome to the weekend! This is my first weekend back in Brooklyn after TWO FULL WEEKS and I am very beyond excited to do nothing except sit on my couch watching soccer. Except that is a lie, because I will be leaving to go to 1. the Brooklyn Flying Tiger grand opening because FLYING TIGER IS THE GREATEST STORE EVER and I would like to try my luck at winning free tickets to Copenhagen, and 2. my Dungeons & Dragons club (I am a halfling rogue named Milo Thorngage, ps…) followed by seeing Lydia Ainsworth play Baby’s …
