Find Brunch Right Now

This Week in NYC: Jan. 27-Feb. 2

Happy Monday, everyone! You can now take a deep sigh of relief that the statistically most depressing month of the year has almost come to a close. I’ll be escaping the winter doldrums and jetting off to sunshine, cacti, and golf greens in Phoenix, but don’t worry, there’s plenty to do right here in the Big Apple. Hint: It starts with a Super, ends with a Bowl. Hut, hut, hike!

If I were stranded on a deserted island, my three preferred sources of sustenance would be wine, cheese, and dessert. On Wednesday, this trifecta of deliciousness is brought together by Murray’s Cheese at 10 Degrees Bistro, which won’t actually be too deserted.

Poco Brunch

It’s Super Bowl Sunday! If you’re anything like me, I’m in it for the food and commercials. Regardless of you’re betting on the Seahawks, Broncos, or if the latest Google ad will make you cry again, pregame the big game with a fun boozy brunch. I recently had a blast at the East Village’s Poco with twenty of my besties. 33 Avenue B, New York, NY.
