You've been obsessed with Basquiat since that midnight viewing of Downtown 81 in college, but the closest you've come to nonconformist art is that coffee table Banksy book from Urban Outfitters. Get in the game (literally) with this Adventure: an afternoon of paintball and barbecue with round-trip transportation.
We'll assemble at the northwest corner of West 45th Street and 11th Avenue in Manhattan, where our rapid-fire team will be waiting to usher us onto a coach bus. Be sure to bring extra water, good sneakers, and thick clothes to absorb the paintball strikes. We'll drive out to one of the world's largest paintball fields, Skirmish USA in Pennsylvania and, upon arrival, we'll gather into groups and receive our equipment: marker, facemask with goggles, unlimited N2 air fills, and 500 paintballs. After a safety tutorial and primer on the rules, we'll be let loose to paint the sky red, blue, and yellow as a cascade of chromatic bullets rain on the opposing teams.
Following our artful conquests, we'll settle down for a midday feast, including pulled pork sandwiches, barbecue chicken sandwiches, hamburgers, two hot dogs, or a veggie burger with potato salad, chips, and choice of water, iced tea, lemonade, or soda. We'll then finish off our day with another round of paintball, this time at the Tippman Castle field, which features three-story towers, ramparts, catwalks, rooms, and an awesome siege tower. It's sure to satisfy that appetite for rebellious painting... and pork.
