Improv Everywhere has announced that the 5th Annual Black Tie Beach party will take place August 17th, 2014 at a New York City-area beach. Each year, participants of Black Tie Beach head to a New York City beach and nonchalantly enjoy themselves while wearing formal attire, much to the bafflement of fellow sunbathers. The exact meeting point will be announced on August 14th — partygoers can RSVP on Facebook.
We are going to spend a day at the beach wearing black tie attire. Everything else about our day at the beach will be normal. Please bring what you would normally bring to the beach (towel, beach bag, sandcastle building tools, Frisbee, kite, etc.) The only unusual thing is that we will be doing all of this in black tie, while acting like it is perfectly normal dress for the beach. Plan on swimming in the ocean in your attire (you should try to find cheap/used clothes.)
