Girl power! March is Women’s History Month so why not dive right in and experience some of these educational and enlightening events the city has on offer. From free docu-series screenings about RBG, Joan Rivers or Jane Jacobs played at the Brooklyn Historical Society to roundtables to a secret speakeasy with a suffragette theme. This is a great opportunity to learn about and appreciate women.
Don’t bust your bracket. March Madness (click here for info and a printable bracket) will be taking the city by storm this month as basketball fans from all around the country gather to cheer on their teams. Make everyone jealous by attending a game at the iconic Madison Square Garden or go to one of the many sports bars the city has to offer.
Drink up. Not that we need an excuse to go drinking but here are a few anyway. Edible Manhattan is partnering with The Bowery Hotel in the East Village to throw its 10th annual Good Spirits 2019 cocktail pairing event. We’d also recommend Tipsy Scoop Ice Cream Parlour has combined two of our favorite things: ice cream and alcohol. They offer seasonal flavors as well as ice cream making classes. You can also attend a whiskey tasting or two as well as wine tasting and shopping at Mulberry & Grand. With this much to offer you’ll really have to pace yourself.
Seasonal activities. Want to take part in some winter fun before the season technically comes to an end on March 20? Maybe try your luck at some ice skating at one of New York’s many ice rinks: The Wollman Rink in Central Park, Bryant Park or The Rockefeller Center. Then why not indulge in some seasonal cocktails, like the seriously tasty eggnog at Tavern on the Green.
Spring ahead. If you’re looking for the perfect photo opportunity to say goodbye to the winter woes and to ring in your new spring wardrobe, then pay visit to a flower show. Visit the Macy’s Flower Show at Herald Square to experience the 70+ year tradition, opening March 24. You can also head to the New York Botanical Garden for their Orchid Show, in collaboration with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens paying tribute to “City in a Garden.” Plus, for those ages 21+ there are cocktail evenings on select dates where you can sip and stroll.
