On Luxury Hunters’ scavenger hunts, sleuths use smartphones—which participants must provide themselves—to nab photos and videos of luxury goods that they uncover throughout New York City. At each event's kick-off, adventurers gear up for competition by reviewing the sponsor’s upscale goods and visualizing the high-end dinner prizes up for grabs. Next, vagabonds rush out to numerous trendy restaurants, shops, and bars to hunt down luxury products. Prey includes items from high-end brands such as Alma Tequila, Perugina Chocolate, The Film Annex, and more, representing a wide range of interests and vowel combinations. At a complimentary concluding soiree, guests may receive prizes based on the quality of their photos, and all guests depart with swag.

The organizers of Out-Fit Challenge, the first national LGBT mud run obstacle course, aim to spark new friendships between its runners by creating challenges that require not only personal perseverance, but the occasional helping hand. Obstacles such as barbed wire crawls or mud pits force racers to get dirty, and tandem climbing walls make runners rely on each other to progress.
After making it to the finish line, participants mingle with newfound friends or long-lost parents at the after-party. After showering, racers can don their finisher?s award with pride. Each participant can pick up their complementary beer from one of the bars, before mingling, dancing to live music, or chowing down on the food vendors? grub.

As part of the Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex, located at the historic Chelsea Piers, the Golf Club perches over the same port that once welcomed ships into New York City. Now, golfers tee up in the driving range's 52 heated and weather-protected stalls, which overlook the glinting waters of the Hudson River. Automatic tee-up systems position balls for launch across the 200-yard, net-enclosed fairway. A putting green allows patrons to improve their short game, and two Full Swing simulators encourage them to take hacks in virtual environs, transporting them to famous courses across the country or fifth-grade birthday parties where they missed the pi?ata.
Children and adults alike can enlist in Golf Club at Chelsea Piers? classes, which stratify students by experience level. The 12-member coaching staff includes PGA and LPGA professionals, and sessions take place in a 2,000-square-foot teaching facility.
