Improv Everywhere: Black Tie Beach


All this slush (read: not fluffy white snow) has me dreaming of summer.

Last summer, my friend Tara and I participated in Improv Everywhere Black Tie Beach is an annual event staged by Improv Everywhere at Brighton Beach.

Brighton Beach Black Tie Beach

Dressed in my bridemaid’s attire from this wedding, Tara and I got smiles and stares on the train, but were instructed by the organizers to remain mum.

When we arrived at the beach, we joined in a volleyball game before taking a plunge in the ocean.

The water was delightfully warm (although the dress sort of acted as an adhoc wetsuit), and a sweet Russian lady was thrilled that we were sporting formal wear.


After about an hour and a half, we ended the day with a group run into the water and a quick change of the clothes before exploring the rest of the neighborhood.

It was a fun experience, and I definitely plan on doing it again this year.. and maybe convince Walt to participate as well.
