10 Things To Do This Weekend That Are Worth Braving The Cold For

No need to let the cold keep you cooped up in your apartment. Despite the dropping temperatures, the city is just as lively as it ever is. Here are 10 awesome things to do this weekend, courtesy of our favorite event discovery app, Fever:

 

1. 90s Party At Webster Hall

Everyone knows Webster Hall is one of the best party venues in the city. You can get a ticket to their 90s party this Friday for only $10, if you buy it on the Fever app. Once you start drinking and dancing, you’ll forget it’s bitterly cold outside.

 

2. Mardi Gras in January

If you want to party but you’re on a budget, have no worries. You can get free entry at Brooklyn’s hottest club, Good Room, this Saturday. FIXED, the party professionals, are bringing DJs Dave P, JDH and more.

If you’re looking for a party that’s a little more cultured, Tribeca Art Factory has what you need. For $30 you’ll get access to an all-night open bar and complimentary small plates this Friday. There will be a DJ spinning all night, and you’ll get a chance to look at affordable art for sale, or chat with the artists and give input on the pieces.

 

6. Painting Party

If you’d rather create the works of art than just look at them, get a ticket for a painting party at The Irish Exit. You’ll paint, drink wine and munch on snacks.

 

7. Shoe-Inn Warehouse Sale

If shopping is your entertainment of choice, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of Shoe-Inn’s warehouse sale this Friday. Prices will be as low as $20, and some of these shoes are up to a $1250 value! It’s free, but go on Fever to get a ticket, because only a limited number of people will be let in.

 

8. A Night Out with Nightcap Riot

This is a package deal like no other—$50 for a complete NYC night out. You’ll get an artisanal beverage tasting, access to a specialty cocktail bar, and high quality entertainment. You’ll see an adaption of George Bernard Shaw’s play “The Man of Destiny,” and then enjoy a concert by JC Brooks and The K.i.D. This special event is running on Friday or Saturday.

 

9. Drunk Shakespeare

If you’re more into the theater than the drinking, try Drunk Shakespeare. You don’t get drunk while watching it (although that’s an option); the actors get drunk while performing it. It’s sure to be hilarious. Get your tickets for $29 on Fever.

 

10. Skiing Adventure at Hunter Resort

This last option is a true winter adventure. You get to go skiing at Hunter Resort in the Catskills, and your $129 ticket includes round trip transportation, equipment rental, and a lift ticket. (As a random bonus, you also get a $20 Uber credit.) If you’re dying to get out of the city for a day, this is a great way to do it.
