Recess Bocce Tournament

We love our outdoor games, and we love them even more when they're in an old-timey atmosphere and encourage vintage uniforms. That's why we're always stoked when Recess stages its annual bocce tournament on Governors Island. The 32 teams tossed wooden balls—and test-rode Linus bikes and ate ice cream in between games—until it was time to catch the ferry across the harbor and return to more modern delights.
