New York's the capital of a lot of things, comedy very much among them. Here's our guide to the scene.
So those are the big ones in Manhattan if you're planning ahead. But there are tons more places where you can usually just walk in and there's so much talent in this town that the people you see will be amazing. Here's a few more choices:
Gotham Comedy Club, 241 E 24th (between 2nd & 3rd).
The Stand Comedy Club & Restaurant, 116 E 16th St, Ground Floor (between Irving Place & Union Square East).
New York Comedy Club, 241 East 24th Street (between 2nd & 3rd) & 85 East 4th Street (between 2nd & Bowery).
West Side Comedy Club, 201 West 75th Street (between Broadway & Amsterdam).
In other words, shallow South Brooklyn is the place if you want to see big names. But one of the best things about NYC (and this goes for basically all of the arts) is the number of super-talented people trying to get their break in smaller places that you can stroll into and pay almost nothing for. Here are our favorite Brooklyn spots for that:
The Gutter is, thankfully, a bowling alley bar instead of a place to lie down in the street that serves beer. It also hosts some terrific comedy shows. The highlight is Comedians You Should Know every Wednesday. $5 gets you entry and you'll see people who've been on the Daily Show, Conan, Colbert, etc.
The Gutter, 200 N. 14th Street (between Berry & Wythe, Williamsburg).
Two Boots is a venerable pizzeria with a few branches in town. The pizza is....fine. But every Tuesday, Sherm Jacobs hosts Ambush Comedy, which is free and you even get a free beer if you come between 8 & 8:30.
Two Boots, 558 Driggs Avenue (between 6th & 7th, Williamsburg).
The Knitting Factory started out as the greatest club for avant-garde jazz that ever was. Then, Nolita gentrified and they moved downtown. Then they realized that you can't make money off of avant-garde jazz and moved again to Williamsburg and more or less became a rock club. For a certain type of weirdo (of which this writer is one), that was a tragedy. But enough about that, the club is still great. More importantly, they've got comedy every Sunday and it's free.
The Knitting Factory, 361 Metropolitan Avenue (between Havemeyer and, uh, Havemeyer, Williamsburg).

Apple picking is an ultimate fall pastime especially in the northeast and the beginning of October is the best time to go. You can makes tons of recipes with the apples you collect (apple pies, apple crisp, hard cider, apple cider, and more) and at some orchards even sip fresh cider or wine while you pick.
Best orchards to check out for apple-picking this October:
Fall fun awaits New Yorkers! Check out all our fall events on asembl to see what's going on this week. For the apple picking lovers, there will be a few groups making trips to the orchards this season. You can create your own apple-picking events on the app and share with the asembl community to see who is down to make the trip.

Do you live to eat or eat to live?
This weekend is all about PIZZA, COOKING CLASSES AND BEER LOVERS. We have just the events for you if you are more than a Netflix and chill type of person on weekends. There will be cooking classes, beer festivals, bottomless brunches, taste of Williamsburg and more. Scroll through and sign up on the app.
FRIDAY: MAKE PIZZA, DRINK (BOTTOMLESS) WINE
Tired of doing the same thing every Friday? Take on a new kind of challenge with friends or your date and learn how to make your very own authentic Neapolitan pizza.
A few days ago was #nationalbeerloversday so it's pretty important to continue the celebration into the weekend... Hit up IPA Fest to ensure a good time.
SATURDAY: IPA Fest at Brooklyn's EXPO Center.
Looking for something a little less drinking related? There are a bunch of cooking classes on the app - scope them out. One in particular will be pretty awesome. On Saturday there will be a market to table cooking class where you will learn to cook with creativity and spontaneity (and pick your own produce!). This is the perfect season to find all kinds of fresh ingredients and you will be able to pick it from the local Greenmarket at the Grand Army Plaza. There will be lots to choose from but the list includes late summer tomatoes, squash, hot peppers, celery, beets, and apples.
SATURDAY: MARKET TO TABLE COOKING CLASS
Filling up your calendar with food and drink related events is fun. It's the best way to explore different parts of your neighborhood, taste a few samples here and there and explore new spots you've never been before. NYC and Brooklyn have a whole lot to offer this weekend so start RSVPing and ping your friends your favorite eat & drink events.
On asembl, we've got you covered. Don't fear a messed up first date or lack of planning. There are events for all to enjoy. See you out there.
