Yawn, I can’t believe it’s Monday. I returned late last night from a fun-filled girl’s weekend in Dewey Beach and am in desperate need of some detox after far too many orange crushes and Grotto’s pizza after hours. It’s now time to chug some green juice and almond milk lattes, and get my game face on for another exciting week in New York City. Here’s what we’re looking forward to this week.
Bitches love bubbly, especially when it comes in the iconic orange-yellow Veuve Clicquot wrapper. Veuve Clicquot has dispatched a mail order truck to make special deliveries across the country, starting right here in the Big Apple. After numerous stops across the city and the Hamptons, Clicquot by Mail returns to NYC today to celebrate Bastille Day at Bagatelle. Enjoy by-the-glass specials and a pick-up game of Petanque from 7-9 p.m. 1 Little West 12th St, New York, NY
We’re all about working hard and playing hard, while supporting other female entrepreneurs. Get your networking on at Pranna this Tuesday night to talk business and entrepreneurship with members of The NYC Business Networking Group (NYCBNG). According to this organization, this “ain’t your mama’s business mixer” so expect an evening of laughs and business card swapping with power Bitches from a variety of industries. Tickets are $10 in advance (only 100 available) and $20 at the door so purchase your ticket here! 79 Madison Ave, New York, NY (Upper Level Bar)
Try a picnic at Brooklyn Bridge Park for dinner tonight to celebrate Hump Day in style. The view of the Manhattan skyline is killer and you’ll have plenty room to spread out. 334 Furman St, Brooklyn, NY
For a classy date night or drinks with the girls, check out the ongoing NoMad Upstairs, a jazz series on Thursdays featuring fine-dining snacks with serious cocktails and wine. Live music in a luxurious hotel setting is the ultimate Thirsty Thursday. More information here. NoMad Hotel, 1170 Broadway, New York, NY
It’s finally the weekend so treat yourself to a great meal at a newly opened Brooklyn hot spot. Head to Humboldt & Jackson in Williamsburg to taste their exclusively American beer and wine list. The tasting room and event space is owned by Brooklyn Star’s Bill Reed with his wife in the old Cozy Royale space on Humboldt Street. 434 Humboldt St, Brooklyn, New York
For a healthy weekend meal, head to one of New York’s numerous farmer’s markets and pick up fresh, local ingredients for Emily’s peach, tomato, and basil summer salad. This is a light, flavorful dish perfect to bring to a summer barbecue or a rooftop get-together. Try the recipe here.
Brunch of course! Our recent Bitch-approved locales that have a received an A- score or better include Cafe Cluny in the West Village, The Butcher’s Daughter in Nolita, and Buttermilk Channel in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
