Here are a few reminders before you start your boozy adventure:
1. Gather a reliable crew: People tend to bail last minute, especially when public transit is involved. Don’t let anyone ruin your Sunday Funday.
2. Make a Reservation: Choose your dining preference and call ahead to secure a table and confirm the prices, this way there are no surprises.
3. Look up train times in advance: The LIRR runs on a different schedule on the weekends, so plan in advance or you will be stuck in the city for the night. (Would you really mind?)
4. Lastly, enjoy your weekend and try to forget that Monday exists.
