There’s nothing worse than a Monday, let alone a frigid one, after a weekend of fleeting warm weather. I spent the last two days frolicking in the park and unpacking my open-toe wedges that were gathering dust during the Polar Vortex. What a tease. At least it’s Beer Week in New York City so drink up and bear down during another stint of snow.
Emily is celebrating girl power during Beer Week and attending the “Women in Beer” event at Taproom 307 tonight from 6-9 p.m. Beer lovers will sample more than 40 brews, all created or sold by women. Emily’s looking forward to try the “Sweet Fire” debut, an Empire Brewing chocolate-chili stout. 307 Third Ave, New York, New York.

After completing my first 15k this winter, I’m toying with the idea of venturing on my first half marathon. To get a jumpstart on training, I plan to lace up my hot pink Flyknits and join Nike’s Run Club. The club meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Flatiron store. Come get fit, Bitches! 156 Fifth Ave, New York, New York.
Mix and mingle with some inspirational Head Bitches in Charge (HBIC) in the tech space for a night of storytelling and improv. “Being comfortable while being uncomfortable” is the theme of the night to help change our viewpoints on stepping out of our comfort zone. 45 Main St, 2nd floor, Brooklyn, New York. RSVP here.
Wine and chocolate are a girl’s best friends, so we’re grabbing a group of our besties for the Savory and Sweet event with celebrated cookbook author and food historian Francine Segan. Segan will guide us through a chocolate and wine tasting as we learn how our favorite treats go from a bean to a bar. Tickets to the sweet fete are $55. 873 Broadway, 6th floor loft, New York, New York. More information here.
If you’ve read about my recent brunch escapades at Café Du Monde and Criollo, you know that New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in this country. Mardi Gras is upon us so bring on the beads and King cake! If you can’t make it to the Big Easy, celebrate an equal mix of charity and revelry at the Angel Orensanz Foundation’s 8th Annual Fat Friday Mardi Gras party benefitting arts and culture organizations from NYC to NOLA. Restaurateurs, musicians, artists, chefs, and New Yorkers will come together to observe the spirit of New Orleans through giving back by totally getting down! Tickets here.
It may not feel like spring yet outside of our fake out this past weekend, but celebrate one of our favorite seasons by sampling approximately 150 specialty brews at the NYC Spring Seasonal Craft Beer Festival. The earlier afternoon event is already sold out, but you can still purchase a $65 ticket for the 7-9:30 p.m. session. 68 Lexington Ave, New York, New York.
