Who doesn’t love the way NYC turns into one giant free outdoor movie theater in the summer? You’d probably love it more if you could get seats. Luckily, Waterside has you covered in August with a stellar line-up starting this Monday, August 3–minus the unbearable crowds.

We’re showing How to Train Your Dragon (Aug 3), Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (Aug 10), Finding Nemo (Aug 17), The Dark Knight (Aug 24). We’ve got popcorn, seating, and a river breeze. Bring yourselves and your friends. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome, and the public is more than welcome. Films start at dusk (around 8PM).

June 2015 at Xia Spa: Sandal Season, Father's Day Special

June 2015 Xia Spa Specials

Xia Leder, founder and manager of Xia Spa, let us in on a little secret awhile ago–some of her most regular customers are men. We tend to think of spa treatments as lady-centric but why wouldn’t dads need pampering as much as moms do? Buff and polish, rejuvenating facial, and chair massage are among the favorite mens’ treatments at Xia Spa–you can get a Father’s Day gift certificate for any of these services and more. And for either gender, this month’s mani-pedi specials include callus removal to get you ready for sandal season.

Xia Spa is located at 25 Waterside Plaza, and is open Tues-Sat 10AM-8PM, Sun 10AM-7PM. Visit the website and contact the spa at (212) 689 0691 or for appointments.
