Midsummer Night Swing

Do you like to dance? If yes, it seems that Midsummer Night Swing is your perfect date with New York. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the event, which kicks off tonight outside Lincoln Center and goes through July 13. Every evening, a different band performs under stars. Take a one-hour dance lesson from a trained instructor, then be ready to cut loose on the dance floor.

Swing, tango—you name it, they'll be teaching it. If you ask me, I think disco night (with plenty of Donna Summer tunes) sounds the best. After 10 o'clock, the city's noise ordinance kicks in, but on this occasion, the party doesn't stop. For an extra $5, you'll get a pair of headphones where the music is broadcast directly to your ears until 11:30. A silent dance party on the streets of New York? Totally cool.

A full calendar is available here. Do you think you'll check this out?
