Catching "SATC" the New York way
Spend this weekend disassociating yourself with wannabes. (AP)
New York will be inundated this weekend with tourists seeking to catch a Sex and the City screening where it all happened. Theyll do it up right: Dress up as their favorite characters, watch the film with 73 girlfriends and top the night off with yummy-tinis at a swank bar. You, resident New Yorker, can do better.
Theres another route for native fans who want to avoid the bachelorette party-like festivities while remaining true to the essence of SATC":
1. Dress like your normal fabulous self. Youve already got New York style. Mimicking Carries ballgown-with-a-cardigan ensemble screams out-of-towner-with-a-costume.
2. Schedule brunch with your best friend. The SATC crowd bonded over eggs in the morning probably more often than drinks at night.
3. See the movie in the afternoon. This is a surefire way to dodge the tourists with the matching I heart SATC T-shirts. Nice scrunchie, lady.
4. Take an hours-long walk through the city you already know so well, making sure to point out the women who are so obviously visiting just for the movie. But also make sure to point out the men you would date if you had Samanthas audacity.* See all the New York 'Sex and the City' premiere photos here.
