It’s enough to make you want to migrate east. The recently-concluded Urban Bear NYC 2016 is a four-day fest of fur, beards, bellies, and beer organized by the fine gentlemen at The Urban Bear. They manage to cram a man-size serving of fun into three days, with events like the kickoff Stache Bash, the Bear Invasion of the Whitney Museum (my personal favorite), the Underwear Party (wait, maybe that’s my favorite), Bears on Bikes, the Honey dance party, the Urban Bear NYC Street Fair and Pig Roast, and finally the Urban Bear NYC Mega Beer Blast. Whew.
The street fair was admittedly a little cold this year, but there were plenty of warm, sweet bear hugs to go around and keep you warm.
Thanks much to Urban Bear CEO Robert Valin for arranging for us to use these great photos by Gustavo Monroy.
