Wondering what to do this week? Check out these weekly events happening in NYC, featuring everything from Mexican-inspired fiestas and '20s-themed burlesque shows to Tinder Thursdays. The best part? If you can't make it this week, you can pencil it in for next time.
The Tribeca Film Festival is one of the most opportune events for first-time filmmakers to shine, providing them with a platform to expose their talent as well as an audience willing to receive it. This goes double for artists like Daniel Arsham, who venture out with a new medium but with an established creative community behind them.
On Thursday, April 16th, Ella McHugh previewed her Fall 2015 collection at Wave Atelier. Guests enjoyed perusing her deluxe designs, which are inspired by the glamorous silver screen era, a life-long passion for Art Deco, and addiction to period murder mysteries.
It's 2015, we think it's time to admit most of us celebrate 4/20. Well, the day has finally arrived! Too stoned to make plans? From nugget eating contests, to the Reefer Madness reunion concert, we've got your highly anticipated agenda, NYC.
The Whitney will be officially reopening its doors on May 1st in its new Meatpacking location, and we couldn't be more excited! Art aficionados have been waiting since last year for this event, when The Whitney shuttered its Madison Ave location and began the move downtown to its Renzo Piano-designed home.
Finally, there is a reason to trek down to the Financial district other than work or Shake Shack! We recently visited Le District, a marketplace, eatery mirage in the otherwise barren desert of FiDi - think Eataly, only French, and plus chic.
Last night, New Yorkers for Children hosted its annual spring dinner dance, a Fool's Fête, to benefit youth in foster care at the Mandarin Oriental sponsored by Saks Fifth Avenue. The evening paid homage to the life and work of the late-designer, Oscar de la Renta and the over $50 million he helped raise for the organization during his time as a board member. A live auction raised $100,000 alone last night, and the entire evening brought in $725,000 for the charity. Click through for an inside look!
Spring is here, summer is quickly approaching, and we all know that means you're in need of an updated wardrobe. Shopping in the city is expensive, but we've found a way for you to shop without feeling guilty. Instead of spending your lunch money (again) on designer brands and expensive streetwear, make like Macklemore and hit up one of the five best thrift shops in the city.
Since our boss is probably reading this right now, we can't even attempt to take off on April 20th this year, which falls on a Monday (thanks, calendar!). Nope, we'll be in the office bright and early, though we might get a green juice from Organic Avenue just for the occasion. But nothing's stopping us (or you) from taking part in the 4/20 festivities a little early this weekend, and we've got just the guide for you cannabis culinary connoisseurs. So melt your cannabutter, stream Grandma's Boy on Netflix, and get to cookin'!
After brunch this weekend, why not spend your sunny Sunday checking out the most talked-about art exhibitions in the city? From big names like Richard Prince and Keith Haring, to innovative young artists who work in the digital realm, click through for your gallery guide!
