We Can’t Wait for Summer! [CONTEST]

bryant park summer

It has been a long, hard winter here in NYC. Just when we think it’s going to warm up and we can start wearing shorts again, BOOM! Snow! We’ve decided it’s time to stop worrying about the snow and start getting excited about the summer. Sure, we may get a few more cold days this year, but our minds are on summer time!

Well, we’re hosting a contest. If you can guess which day is going to be the hottest in April, you will be eligible to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card! That’s all you have to do, just make a guess and if you’re right, you win! Here’s the thing: you can wait as long as you want to make a guess on which day you think will be the hottest, but you cannot guess a day that has already passed.

Better yet, Gray Line New York is 88 years old this year, so if we get some real summer fun this month and hit 88 degrees at any point, we’re going to give away bus tours to everyone who entered!

So get over to our facebook page and enter the contest here with this link because I don’t know about you, but we just can’t wait for summer!
