Improv Everywhere Presents Black Tie Beach 2011

Improv Everywhere recently organized their 2nd annual Black Tie Beach event featuring hundreds of people in formal wear enjoying an afternoon at Rockaway Beach in Queens.

For the Second Annual Black Tie Beach, hundreds of participants spent a day at Rockaway Beach in black tie attire. We covered a half mile-long stretch with a diverse group of people of all ages laying out, playing games, and swimming in the ocean in formal wear. Agents were instructed to find cheap tuxedos and ball gowns at thrift stores for the occasion. The event also happened on the same day in five other cities around the world, including Sydney, Australia and Malmö, Sweden.
