With all of the festivities happening over the next few days, it was difficult choosing just a few to share with you all - but keep your eyes on our Twitter and Facebook for other events/places to check out!
Treats & Eats
1. In case you still have a sweet tooth post King Cake festivities, check out Murray's Cheese shop's Sweets for your Sweet class on Saturday, Feb 13th. "Join Murray's as they explore the sweeter side of [cheese], tasting favorite seasonal cheeses alongside everything from silken, churned honey to intense single origin chocolate to buttery, flaky donuts. Why fire up the oven when dessert is just a cheese cave away?" - don't mind if we do, Murray's!
2. Did you leave your Valentine's plans until the last minute? We've got you covered! Here are our foolproof Valentine's day plans (whether you're coupled up or spending the day with your friends): Start the day with a special edition Dough doughnut - we hear they'll be red velvet and chocolate raspberry. Take a stroll (it will be chilly but sunny!) to Astor Wines and treat yourself to a bottle of your favorite wine/champagne or spirit; the pros at Astor will help you find the perfect bottle..they've never led us astray. Then head home to avoid the craziness of restaurants by ordering from Caviar, our favorite city delivery app. Not only does the food arrive fast and piping hot, but they have they best restaurants and delivery people in the biz.
Sights & Sounds
1. This evening (Thu, 11th) at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, see the amazing 'Sweet Honey In The Rock' do their thing. "The women of Sweet Honey In The Rock shine a light on African-American life through vibrant song, dance, and storytelling. “Their sheer musicianship can still raise goosebumps,” wrote The Guardian of the a cappella ensemble that performs a diverse mixture of blues, African, jazz, gospel, and R&B music. Two jazz luminaries—Terence Blanchard and Regina Carter—make special guest appearances for this evening of soulful and swinging music." shares Carnegie Hall. Whether you can make it or not, check out this video of them at Koerner Hall in Toronto, to experience some spine tingling.
2. This Sat, Feb 13th, head to Central Park's Naumburg Bandshell (Mid-Park from 66th-72nd Streets) between 3-7pm for their annual Central Park Conservancy Ice Festival. There will be professional ice-carving from Okamoto Studio and you can try your hand at molding your own sculpture at the 'Sculpting Station'. At 5pm there will be a "Silent Disco with live music by DJ's: Geo Vanasco and Dylan + DTR, spinning Top 40 hits, Funk and Soul, and your favorite NYC artists into headphones powered by: Quiet Events".
