Over the past few years, boozy adult summer camps have become one of the trendiest ways for New Yorkers to spend a weekend when the mercury begins to rise. After all, there is no better way to rekindle the wonder felt during childhood than riding a Slip 'n Slide while inebriated. But if your upbringing involved nerdy day camps instead of weeks-long sleepover camps, we have just the event for you.
Tonight, the New York City Transit Museum is hosting an event that brings together two of the city's most notable features: booze and trains. Unapologetically titled Camp Wanna-Catcha-Train, the adults-only night will include scavenger hunts, crafts, tours and booze.
The museum, which is located in an out-of-use subway station in downtown Brooklyn, is home to a full slate of artifacts from the history of mass transit in New York City. If you're pining for an up-close view of a vintage Long Island Rail Road caboose or a good old-fashioned steeplecab, this event was made for you.
The event runs from 6–8pm, and tickets are on sale for $15.
