According to a report by Time Out, this summer New York’s Yankee Stadium will repurpose its parking lots to host socially distant entertainment in a new program called Uptown Drive-In.
“The carnival-like experience, set to happen every weekend starting in July, will be a combination of a drive-in movie, live-music concert featuring local NYC artists, and will even feature carside dinner service from beloved New York street vendors,” reads the article.
Reportedly the stage will be raised so attendees can watch from the comfort of their vehicles and audio will be piped in via radio.
The schedule will accommodate “date-night experiences on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, and a family-friendly brunch series during the day on Saturdays and Sundays.”
The project will be spearheaded by MASC Hospitality Group – who put on Bronx Night Market, the Bronx Beer Festival and Uptown Epicure Festival – and performers/prices for the events are still being determined.
“We’re working with city and state officials, and some of our sponsors to reduce cost as much as we can to be able to make this very affordable, and for as many New Yorkers as possible,” MASC’s Marco Shalma told Time Out.
