It’s been a little over twenty-four hours since Prince’s unexpected death on Thursday afternoon and the shock still hasn’t worn off. Last night, monuments around the world lit up purple in memoriam, the casts of Hamilton and The Color Purple led tributes in his honor, and Spike Lee threw an impromptu block party, where an estimated 500-800 attendees danced and sang in remembrance of The Purple One. For those of us who need more time to grieve, there are numerous opportunities to honor his memory by dancing, drinking, and eating. It's what he would want:


VINNIE’S PIZZA in Williamsburg will have Prince-inspired specials all day including “When Doves Fry,” “Purple Romaine,” and “Little Bread Corvette.” They’ll also be giving out free “Foot Prince” stickers at both locations until supplies run out.
