What New York has to offer

Fabulous Drag Night Out
1,000 guests and counting! NYC is full of energy and Hell's Kitchen is where New York’s best drag queens command the stage with glamor, glitter and killer dance moves. Get ready to join us for a care-free night out featuring dancing and drag! Our adventure begins at our favorite lounge bar. Meet your group for the night while we sip the first round of drinks, (which are on me)! Be prepared to “cheers” to our fabulous night ahead! While at the first bar, we'll give you a history lesson about Hell’s Kitchen and NYC LGBT nightlife. From there, we will parade over to our drag show of the evening. The talent level is so high that many famous RuPaul Drag Race queens were plucked from the stages we will visit during the tour. Our night ends at the most prolific bar in Hell’s Kitchen. You’ll feel the energy as soon as we swing open the front door. Once we enter, we’ll stride our way to the front near the stage to ensure we have the best view. All tours end with a dance party with the local crowd! Stay out and the night away! On the fence? A recent guest just wrote a blog post about her night. "The night had such a joyous -comedic- death dropping- high kicking- flipping-splits energy because of awesome drag queens and my lovely hosts."
The Beers, Burgers and Buns Experience
Can’t decide between a bar crawl and a food tour whilst you’re in New York? Then why not join an experience that does both! On the Beers, Burgers and Buns experience we will do just what the title suggests - drink cold beer (or wine), eat delicious burgers, and bite into some (chicken) buns – as we walk through the fascinating neighborhood of the East Village. Along the way we’ll visit three unique bars and two dining spots, plus we’ll learn about the fascinating history of New York City – from the prohibition era to today – and hear the stories of the people behind the food and drink you will be enjoying. What more could you ask for? This experience is only for those 21 years & older. EVERYONE must bring valid ID. Great for solo travelers, corporate groups and private parties alike. *Sadly this is not available for vegan and gluten free diets. Sorry!

The Soul of Harlem Walking Tour
As a New Yorker, I’ve lived in all 5 Boroughs of NYC. However, my birthplace was Harlem. Thus, I will show you the place dear to my heart – the village of Harlem. This unique, soulful walking experience will occur in one of four sections of Harlem - Central Harlem. This section was the Heart and Soul of the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights movement in America. Our journey will begin with a birds-eye view of 125th Street looking westward – this will give us a photographic preview of some of the locations we will visit. We will then walk to the former homes of the Harlem Renaissance central figures, Langston Hughes, Madam C.J. Walker, James W. Johnson, etc. On this 10,000-step journey, we will pass several Harlem murals that capsulize Harlem’s glorious past. We will also see where Martin Luther King spoke, suffered a near-death experience, and was hospitalized. Two places of particular interest will be explored – the Harlem Jazz Museum (Thurs-Sat only) & the Schomburg Library for African Studies (Mon-Sat). At the Schomburg, we will see a mosaic cosmogram containing the ashes of Langston Hughes underneath it. To round out our experience, we will walk upon Harlem’s “Walk of Fame;” and see monuments of Civil Rights trailblazers and the famous Sylvia’s Restaurant, named after the “Queen of Soul Food” Sylvia Woods. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your guests.

Drama & Discourse
**Many thanks to our guests for making us the highest rated theatre experience on Airbnb! - Attend a theatre show with an insider at a discount. - Learn the story of the venue/fun facts about Broadway/off Broadway. - Insightful conversations about the play over great food/drinks available at eatery (Note: Refreshments are not included in the ticket price).

I'll take you right to the heart of this intimate scene. We'll meet in front of the theater, where I'll share with you the history of that venue.

Now imagine the times you shared the magical feeling of live entertainment with them over those years. I can bet those are some of the moments you’ll treasure most! **We also offer a pocket-friendly, introvert-friendly, self-guided experience; just message to inquire. @DramaDiscourse

Your guide to New York

Where do locals hang out in New York City?

In a city with 8 million people, this isn’t a place where tourists and locals divide their time. Manhattan (or the City) is home to some of the world’s biggest attractions — Times Square, the MOMA, the Met, Wall Street, you name it — but it is also where many New Yorkers live, work, and go out. To feel more in the know, tour Chinatown through its food and markets before heading to Upper Manhattan for jazz and African-American history in Harlem, or a fortune telling over Turkish coffee in the East Village. And when it comes to classic New York City things to do, you can't go wrong with a rooftop bar, or sunset cruises via ferry or water taxi, to see the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building from unique vantage points. These NYC icons never get old, even for locals.

However, for a real NYC experience, embrace the diverse art, food, and history of the boroughs outside of the city: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Whether you spend your day at a park, in a museum in Midtown, or out shopping for designer threads at thrift stores in Williamsburg, don’t feel like you have to get caught up in a New York minute. Stop to enjoy your surroundings, and make time for people watching.


Where do locals eat in New York City?

It’s the communities and neighborhoods within the five boroughs that define the culture and energy of this iconic metropolis, and that story is best told through food. Preferably at brunch.

In the Bronx, find some of the best pizzas and pastas outside of Rome in what many New Yorkers consider the city’s true Little Italy. Meanwhile, in nearby Queens, you can travel the world in an afternoon by sampling Southeast Asian bites, Latin American dishes, and plenty of other cuisines in areas such as the Jackson Heights neighborhood.

With so many things to try, a food walking tour with a local guide can be a great way to be sure you don’t miss any of the best bites.


What are the best ways to escape New York City for a day?

When you need a break from the city action, a day trip out of New York City can lead you to other parts of the Empire State and beyond. One of the most popular NYC day trips is a drive to the Hudson Valley and the Catskills for plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, but it’s also a must-do for food lovers and antique hunters. For those looking for a coastal calm, make the trip to Greenport, Long Island, where delicious oysters, great wine, and beach time are the only requirements for your visit.
