Foursquare Tips

  • Visit the space shuttle Enterprise. It was the 1st orbiter built & began service in 1977. Designed to be an atmosphere and ground test vehicle, it never saw space flight.
  • "A fully functional aircraft carrier ship + submarine + planes (Concorde, helicopters, Space Shuttle, etc.) whats not to love? Don't miss the yearly screening of Top Gun on the flight deck."
  • The concert event of the summer -- featuring The Flaming Lips, fun., Grandmaster Flash, Grizzly Bear and Santigold -- will be held tonight at 7pm. Follow The @ColbertReport on Twitter.
  • The best part for any serious fan of Americana is the yearly showing of Top Gun at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museums flight deck. Picnicing is encouraged but booze is not.
