Come Party With Us During Fleet Week In NYC

It's time to party, sailor.

Do you like to party? That’s good. So do we.

In fact, we love to party, which is why Task & Purpose is joining forces with Team RWB to throw the best Fleet Week happy hour this side of the Hudson (or the other side, too).

And if you’re in New York City on Thursday, May 26, we want you, our readers, to join us at the famous Point Break bar in midtown Manhattan.

We’ll have it all: Cheap drinks, free appetizers, giveaways (also free), and, of course, great conversation (price TBD). It sure beats the hell out of Times Square. Trust us.
