This guide has been curated by NYC bullicorn Whitney Meer. Thanks, Whitney!
The Bullish Conference is only two weeks away and we could not be more excited. We’re polishing our business tiaras and getting our blazers pressed in anticipation of your arrival. A lot of you are coming in from out of town, so we want to make sure your days in New York are sprinkled with unicorn dust. We pulled together a list of things you might be interested in while you’re here.

Grab a coffee and the city’s best croissant at Ceci Cela.
Get your art on and go see the picasso sculptures at MoMA, or go on a Museum Hack tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Go see The Roots in Central Park!
Friday, October 9th
Friday is a good day to hit up otherwise overly crowded brunch spots. Clinton Street Baking Company has killer pancakes and Freeman’s is also excellent.

Sunday, October 11th
October will be in full swing, so grab a brave buddy and go on a Ghost Tour of NYC.
Asscat 3000 is a free improv show at UCB Chelsea. Head over around 5:00 to get in line, they give out tickets at 8:15. This is a great thing for a group of bullicorns to do together!
