1. Sundae School Flower Shop Pop-Up

Want to blow some smoke? Sundae School—a smokewear fashion label and cannabis brand–launched a temporary, two-floor pop-up at 248 Mott Street where visitors can roll a custom floral CBD joint and shop the company's merch: caps, T-shirts and small accessories. The stor has a lower level that has been transformed into an interactive installation dubbed "Nightcap." Get your phone out to capture a groovy and dreamy image of more than 10,000 flower petals illuminated by neon lights in the darkness. The reason? The art illustrates Nyctinasty—the circadian rhythmic movement of higher plants in response to the onset of darkness, or a plant "sleeping." The shop is open from April 19 to the 21.

2. Gallow Green

Bars Cocktail bars Chelsea

Wanna get high? One of the city’s best sky-high bars Gallow Green reopens for the outdoor drinking season on 4/20! The verdant, vintage train station-inspired venue will once again host its popular Sunday brunches, live music events and more. Hit the roof to bask in the glory of spring in NYC while sipping new seasonal cocktails. Got a case of the munchies? Don't worry, they've got pizza.
