Back in July, we remember hearing something about a Mister Softee truck pulling up outside the Distrikt Hotel and supplying over-heated guests with some free ice cream. Though wildly successful, a Distrikt employee had explained this was "not a normal thing" and no other such events were planned for the near future.

Until yesterday! Anyone lucky enough to be walking down W 40th St between Eighth and Ninth Avenues between the hours of 4pm and 5pm were rewarded with a free item (and drink!) from Sweetery NYC.

The graphic dessert truck was parked directly outside the hotel's front door—to the delight of guests and staff members alike—and didn't really seem to discriminate between hotel peeps and non-affiliated passersby. "Yep, it's totally free," one friendly concierge noted, at which point we smiled widely and raced over to claim our mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Though summer's not quite over, the days of idly cracking lobsters and nibbling corn under the stars has passed. So instead, the ever-imaginative Roger Smith Hotel has thought up a newer, more seasonal way to pass the time (and get drunk): Bingo, Bourbon, and Brownies Night.

Yes, you read that correctly. Coming up on October 12, the RS team is inviting bingo enthusiasts (that means YOU) to get cozy in the hotel's Starlight Room for a few friendly rounds, plus homemade brownies and Bourbon. Unlike other events of theirs, which tend to directly promote in-house exhibits at The LAB Gallery, the theme here is the season two premier of Bravo's hit show Work Of Art, which will be screened publicly.

The trick here is to distract your bingo partners by pointing repeatedly at the TV, so they won't be paying attention when their numbers are called out. There are legit prizes at stake here!
