The 13 Best Things to Do in New York City of Friday, April 1st

1. Stand outside Sephora, passing out flyers: Promotion today! Try on every one of our lipsticks– must be every single one on top of another– Get a FREE KISSING BOOTH to set up outside any one of our NYC locations!!
2. Tell your cat you booked him a weekend get away at Meow Parlour cat cafe! When you put him in his carrier, he may pee himself out of anxiety, but tell him the trip is important to build character AND Instagram followers!

3. Show up in Times Square in a brand new, clean Elmo costume. Refuse to accept tips, be nice to all little children, and proclaim yourself a conscientious objector by giving a fury peace sign to any fights that break out.

4. Walk into all the bakeries that DIDN’T participate in Macaron Day, berate them for this fact, and see how many you can convince to fork over macarons.

5. Ask your most promising Tinder match to meet you at the top of the Empire State Building. Threaten to scale the building like King Kong if they flake.

“It’s the line to see Hillary Clinton!”
THINX is handing out free panties!”
“Mary Lane of New York Cliché is doing a reading of her blog!”
