Sleeping is for losers. Need proof? Pick up your very first FREE copy of this week’s Time Out New York to get a daylong, hour-by-hour itinerary for how to have a good time at every hour of the day in NYC. From early-morning raves to late-night food events, we've got activities that will keep you entertained no matter what the clock says. We even caught up with some New Yorkers who keep truly weird hours to get their tips for exploring the city at odd times.
Elsewhere in this issue, we reveal the top ten finalists in our quest to crown New York's Best Bartender. 50,000 of you voted and now it's down to the very last round. See who made the cut and help us decide who takes home the title. Plus, this week we're also highlighting some of the most exciting drag queens in the Brooklyn scene, and listing all the reasons Long Island is, believe it or not, actually kind of amazing.
And because we wanted our first free issue to be extra great, we enlisted the help of five notable New Yorkers to guest edit sections of the magazine this week. Check out the piece Rosario Dawson put together about NYC's fashion trucks scene, Mario Batali's top 4/20 rappers, Patricia Field's comedy picks and more.
