Sick of sitting at your computer? RECESS is a new series of creative-community sporting sessions that offer "an alternative lifestyle to the otherwise rudimentary activities that dominate and sometimes dull our urbanite senses." Simply put, it's an ongoing series of sports and games featuring, no not Bjorn Borg (darn!), but some super stars from the creative world.
Make it out to Colonel's Row at Governor's Island, NY on June 20th to ring in the first RECESS, featuring a badminton competition sponsored by Tretorn. Van Leeuwen ice cream & Le Gamin food mobile truck will be onsite to offer delicacies while Kronan and BioMega will offer attendees an opportunity to test ride their bikes. You can watch, laugh, point fingers -- all that stuff you gotta keep to yourself in the office -- while meeting a bunch of creatively-minded folks. Not to mention learn how to hit some shuttlecocks. Now that's a good time.
