We’ve cut through the noise to bring you five unmissable events going down in the New York City this week. THESE are what your co-workers and friends will be talking about around the water cooler next Monday. Are you going to be left out of the conversation?
Where: Winter Gardens at Brookfield Place
When: Wednesday, February 7 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Ben & Jerry’s is launching a brand new product line and mystery flavors this Wednesday with an exciting launch party at Brookfield Place! Ice cream lovers who attend will be the first to bask in the opportunity to discover and taste Ben & Jerry’s brand new mystery product line and exclusive flavors. Although specifics remain mysterious as well, we know there will be interactive and engaging experiences, fun photo opps, music, oversized machinery, and (of course) plenty of product sampling!
The day-long event invites everyone to come out and celebrate, but be sure to first RSVP here!
Where: Stage 48 – 605 W 48th Street, Manhattan, 10036
When: Saturday, February 10
Join one of NYC’s hottest parties, and help find a cure for a genetic disease: all in one day. Best part? You don’t even have to wear pants. Cupid’s Undie Run is a “brief” fun run that takes place in the middle of a BIG party. That’s right: party, run (a mile-ish, at your own pace), and party back at stage 48. Every inch of this immense 100,000 sq. ft. venue, with multiple dance floors, expansive bars, and high soaring ceilings will tremble to the sweet sounds that live DJs will blast. Proceeds will go to find a cure for Neurofibromatosis. Undies are encouraged, but you’re welcome to wear any costume. Come and join the nation’s largest pantless party and run in your undies!
Where: SideBAR – 118 East 15th Street, Manhattan, 10003
When: Saturday, February 10
Guts, glory, beer guts. Go for gold at SideBAR with their 2018 Beer Olympics tournament! You’ll be tested on your beer pong, jenga, and case race skills. If exhaustion sets in, sideBAR’s friendly staff will rehydrate you with a three-hour open bar of Bud Light drafts, mimosas, and bloody mary’s. Feeling more like a spectator? Enjoy drink specials and cheer on your favorite athletes on any of their large-screen TVs!
Where: Capitale – 130 Bowery, Manhattan, 10013
When: Sunday, February 11
What happens behind a mask, stays behind the mask…. So feel free to get a little crazy and loose at this Venetian mask party full of mystique and playfulness. Back in 1292, the original purpose of the Venetian masked parties was to serve as an excuse for people of different social classes to mingle and indulge their desires. The freedom of anonymity is as thrilling today as it was back then… Attendees will experience sumptuous, over-the-top fusions of Baroque dance, live music, opera, circus, gender-bending burlesque, and vivid immersive theater with New York fantasy architects Dances of Vice and Company XIV. Surrounded by the beauty of Beaux-Arts architecture, Corinthian columns, and the majestic 19th-century skylight of Capitale NY, the magic, and mystery of a Venetian masquerade comes to the XXI century with a hedonistic twist.
Where: Slattery’s Midtown Pub 8 E 36th St #3, 10016
When: Friday, February 9
We all know what living in NYC is like. You get all your friends together, you frolick inside a public fountain, and you have on and off relationships for about 10 seasons. At least that’s what Friends would have us believe. Travel with us through NYC’s most iconic landmarks, meet new people, and recall all your favorite moments from the show with this Amazing Friends Scavenger Hunt! For three hours, you and your team will rack up points, and hopefully, win big prizes by the end!
