Rockaway has been open for almost two years, but it’s only just beginning.
The mall opened its doors last month to rave reviews, with locals flocking to celebrate the new arrival with a live music experience.
Here are our tips to get your ticket to one of the first public events.
Book early If you’re planning to attend the opening party, you need to book in advance.
The event is only open to guests 18 and older, and you’ll need to show your ticket when you arrive.
It’s a good idea to book before the party, though, so you don’t miss out on the fun.
Buy a shirt or two There’s a line at the Rockaways mall to buy shirts.
If you don, don’t worry, you can just grab one at the event.
If it’s a t-shirt you want, it’s $10 at the door, but that’s only for one shirt, so there’s plenty of room for more.
Dress appropriately If you have any questions about how to dress for the Rock-away event, here are some tips to help you avoid trouble: Dress up to impress.
Dress up as you go along, as you do for the day.
Wear a hat and a shirt.
If there’s a costume contest, don the costume you want.
Dress in a way that matches your style.
You’ll need a hat, a shirt, and pants to fit, and that will be up to you.
If your outfit is a little too low cut, you’ll still have a chance to win the t-shirts.
If not, you might want to consider trying out a little bit of punk rock, which will probably be more appropriate than the suit you wear to work.
Wear something other than a shirt The Rockaways Mall’s theme for the opening weekend was “Make it Real.”
It’s an important message that everyone is welcome, and everyone is free to wear whatever they want.
Don’t expect to be able to show up wearing nothing at all.
It may be fun to see what you’ve got on, but if you can’t show up, it will be the same as everyone else, and not a good look.
Don, don, DON’T walk around Rockaway looking like a total idiot.
If someone comes up to a person and tries to make eye contact with them, don-don’t-look-at them, and just say, “Hello, I’m Rockaway, and I love you!”
You’ll have no trouble walking through the crowds with a smile.
Wear hats If you’ve ever tried to wear a hat while you walk through crowds, this is one of those events that you should avoid.
It might be cool to wear one on a Friday afternoon, but the next day, you won’t have a choice.
If the weather is bad, and it’s warm out, you could get a bit of frostbite, so wear a jacket.
If possible, avoid wearing a hat in the mall.
If they do have hats available, try not to wear them, as they could be mistaken for an umbrella.
Wear makeup Rockaway doesn’t have any makeup, but some of the staff does.
That means you may be asked to put on makeup as a part of your outfit.
If so, wear a black wig or make-up, and don’t be afraid to wear it while walking through crowds.
If that’s not possible, you may also want to avoid wearing makeup in general, since it may be too hard to see people without makeup.
Be aware of the weather The Rockaway mall is located in the rainforest, so it’s possible that the weather will be cloudy or rainy, or even drizzly, the day before the event starts.
There’s no rain in New York City, but you’ll be expected to bring your umbrella or umbrella blanket if it rains.
Get a friend or two If you plan on hanging out with other Rockaway attendees, it might be a good time to check in with them first.
If things aren’t going well, you should be able with your friends to share your stories, ask for advice, and get some free food.
Bring sunscreen If you need some extra protection, you’re going to need sunscreen.
There are plenty of spots for shade in the parking lot, so bring a long sleeve shirt and some sunscreen.
Know your rights as a guest Rockaway’s event is a community event, so everyone should know how to behave in a safe environment.
Donning a hat or carrying a water bottle is a good way to keep yourself and others safe, and staying out of sight and sight of others.
Know what you’re looking for and where to look If you know what you want and where you want to go, you shouldn’t have to worry about what people are wearing or where they’re going.
But, if you don?t know
