Where are our beautiful April showers, Bitches? We’re starting April in a weird state of winter-weather confusion. But not to worry, there are plenty of fun spring-time indoor events happening this week. Here’s your social agenda, New York.
Join me tonight for a Bloody Mary or two. I’ll be judging the Bloody Mary Mix Down, where Manhattan’s best bartenders will show off their Bloody Mary best for a chance to compete in the NYC Hot Sauce Expo later this month. The event starts at 8 p.m., see you there! Get details here. The Blind Barber, 339 E. 10th St.New York, NY 10009.
Get a little mid-week glam going at Angelo David Salon. The Madison Avenue spot offers blow-outs, manis and pedis, color, extensions, and more. I went there for a blow-out a week ago and walked out feeling like a million bucks. Angelo David Pisacreta, owner and Creative Director, is a true hair illusionist. Plus, the staff is friendly and the space is gorgeous. Make an appointment here. 420 Madison Ave, 2nd Floor, New York, New York 10017.
Enjoy endless food, an open bar, and luxurious prizes at the 2016 Taste of the Lower East Side. At this year’s event, which supports Grand St. Settlement, you can sample delicious dishes from the 46 participating restaurants, including The Stanton Social, Beauty & Essex, Gemma, and many more.
