NYC, Off the Suggested Donation Path

I'll be spending two days in Manhattan, all by my lonesome. I'm not interested in gettin' my culture on. What should I do? My boyfriend bought me a night in a Midtown hotel. Awww. However, my stay has to take place this weekend (Fri./Sat.), when he'll be unavailable to join me. I'm shy/nerdy, so this puts the kibosh on super-social activities. However, I'm ALSO not terribly interested in seeing any museums/cultural attractions on this trip. Don't get me wrong - those things are delightful! - but it's spring break, so I'd like my trip to be a lil' more indulgent/eclectic/badass.

What I Like: weird food, medical oddities, crazy-ass experiences, testing the limits of my own body (licking a hallucinogenic toad while BASE jumping and having my eyebrows threaded? SIGN ME UP, YO), stuff that's open all night, feeling out of my element, urban exploration and performance art. I know, I know... rather broad. So hit me up with anything you've got. What are YOUR recommendations for solitary activities/excursions in NYC which won't require me to look anyone in the eye and won't necessarily teach me a damned thing, but which WILL leave me with a smile on my face?
