    Hayyyy boys, my guy and I are visiting NYC this weekend. We're staying in the Chelsea district of Manhattan and I'm looking for fun things to do, as i have only been there on business.

    I love the night life, and want to let loose as we work really hard and never get a few days to enjoy ourselves. Any hints/tips/suggestions?

    Thank you icon_wink.gif

    NY is the kind of city where you can walk and figure it out!

    Don't play the boyfriend card...

    Its very hard for the fine men of RJ to come up with suggestions when there are so many exciting and fun things to do in NYC. Everyone has different tastes in what they like to do. I like going to museums, some people like the dance floors. Try being more specific like asking for recommendations into pubs, clubs, restaurants, etc.

    JackBlair and CuriousOne and Calibro have the idea ... drink, then figure it out after you've had a few, walk around, don't be shy, ditch ur friends if possible because you're going to want to do your own thing. I live in NYC and every time a friend comes to visit its irritating trying to tell them what to do but i don't know what ur idea of fun is either, other than yo mentioned "nightlife". If like a loud party with R n B and Latin music at night got to No parking or Le Boy in Washington Heights from 12:30 and 2 AM (not any eariler). Its not a dance club though. Mostly Black and Latino dudes, younger crowd

    What's with all the mean comments...the guy is just asking for some travel tips.......jesh.

    You can definitely figure out the gay stuff by picking up the gay rags that are everywhere in the village.

    As far as touristy things go - walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is actually fun and the Highline is a fun walk too.

    How was your trip CKTwink1253?

    Heading over this weekend for the first time, too. No plans so far and I think I'll just leave it at that and see what happens. Hoping there's still some late night clubs that operate till the wee hours of the night...

    This is a tip I share with friends who are visiting New York City. They have been eternally grateful for this advice:
    Get the phone number and mailing address of someone you know in NYC.
    Go to David Barton Gym on 23rd street between 7th and 8th Ave.
    Ask to speak to a membership recruiter. Tell them you recently moved to NYC and you are shopping around for a gym to join.
    Ask them to give you a free pass for a week to try it out. Give them an address in NYC for contact information.
    At the end of the trial period, thank them and tell them you decided not to join.

    DBG is filled with guys with that classic gay looking, pumped up hunky guy look, complete with tats, face hair and all the typical stereotypes and attitudes that many gay men think is masculine and sexy. The same clones often go to The Eagle, Fire Island etc.

    Assume that the showers/steam room will be an orgy of horny guys getting off. For boys into this scene, its a great way to meet someone who can tell you more about "the lifestyle" and everything they consider fabulous.

    The lights are ridiculously dim in the exercise areas (designed to make everyone look sexier) and there's loud, pumping, techno kind of dance music that may or may not put you in a good mood.

    Have fun!

    Rent a bike for a day (they give you maps, helmets blah blah) and ride threw manhattan, cross the brooklyn bridge, and then go back. I did it and it's one of the most fun things to do. was on the bike from 11 am til 7pm
