From Bedford and Bowery:
For $50, you too can join a hoard of white people dressed in microfleece and yoga gear as they shuffle around from places you’ve probably hit once or twice, Pies N Thies, Milk Bar, and Best Pizza, among others. Participants are given seven separate opportunities to gobble up guilt-free portions of expensive food that when taken all together require an immediate trip to the nearest Soul Cycle. Lucky for the tourists, they appear to be dressed– elastic waistlines for belly growth, breathable material for the meat sweats, and water resistant fabric for all the shame ellipticals they’re gonna be doing afterwards– for the whole affair from beginning to end.
We jest, but tbh, Like a Local looks like the perfect thing to send your relatives off to when they come a-holidaying and you don’t know what to do with them. “I’ve been to all these places :(” you can text them. Tell them to bring you back a cake truffle and you can thank us later.
