The Destination
If you had plans for July 13, might as well cancel them now—we've got something cooking that you will not want to miss. Introducing LivingSocial's first ever Backyard Festival: an all-American summer bash featuring live performances by Aerosmith, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Yeasayer, and more, along with a special culinary experience curated by Union Square Events, featuring Blue Smoke, El Verano Taquería, Box Frites, Union Square Burger, and more.*

Also on tap (literally), a fully stocked beer garden complete with more than 150 craft brews, a special wine area featuring producers from around the country, Hangout Zone with hammocks and bean bags, Cool Down Zone with misting machines and giant fans, on-site graffiti artists, loads of backyard games, including corn hole, horseshoes, ladder ball, and tons more—all taking place in New York City's real backyard... Randall's Island.

The Digs
Rock star weekends call for rock star digs—and to that end, the The Lexington New York City in Midtown Manhattan's posh Upper East Side hits all the right notes. The perfect combination of location and style, the hotel boasts brilliantly decorated rooms (think: luxurious, adjustable Sleep Number beds with tufted scarlet-colored headboards and geometric-patterned accent pillows) with a host of high-end amenities: a granite-top work desk with ergonomic Herman Miller chair, marble-clad bathrooms, Roman window treatments with city views, and flat-screen HDTVs. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the elegant lobby with sleek hardwood accents and modern lighting—your entry point to the hotel's full business center, spacious fitness center, and six (yes, six) restaurants serving everything from sushi and Chinese to Nuevo Latin Dominican. Still not smooth enough for you? Available airport transfers make your weekend's trip to the big party a seamless success.

*Regardless of how many nights are purchased, only two event and ferry tickets will be issued.
