Gothamist hears there's some fun to be had during mid-day and night at Rockefeller Center today and tomorrow: Between 11AM-2:30PM and 6-9PM, Rockefeller Center's Plaza is hosting a "lawn party," with food, music and games. For instance, Nintendo will be letting people try out new games and Brookstone will be giving Segway rides (yeah, we know it's very 2003, but still, it's something to do at lunch). And at night, there will be a happy hour with drinks served on the plaza with live music playing. Gothamist's only hope is that there will be a huge Pikachu wandering around, because a Rockefeller Center lawn party is only complete with a Japanese animated character with super powers.
