It’s the second full work-week of January, but don’t distress, we have a long weekend to look forward to. Now that everyone is officially back and settled from the holidays, we’re excited to get out and explore all that the city has to offer from fashion, art, and of course, food. Here are some highlights of what we are penciling in our polka dot Kate Spade 2014 agendas this week.
Cure your case of the Mondays with a bit of retail therapy. Coye Nokes, a Bitch-approved luxe shoe brand and partner, will feature a Gilt sale launching at 12 p.m. for only 36 hours with prices up to 60% off retail. This season, Ally has rocked the gold mirror booties and Cori Sue has been leopard stepping about town in the Mara pumps.

Congratulations, you made it through Monday! You definitely deserve a sweet treat. Head to the Chocolate Party at the Bell House to celebrate Chocolate NYC’s one year birthday with the organization’s favorite cocoa confections. $20 tickets include samplings of all chocolate varieties. 149 7th St., Brooklyn, New York, NY.
If you’ve found yourself in Midtown’s sea of power-lunch steak restaurants and chopped salad chains, check out the recently opened Little Beet. Chef Franklin Becker’s concept offers an entirely gluten free menu inspired by local, seasonal, and natural ingredients. Bitch in the City Ally recommends the “sushi” salad, charred broccoli, and the cold pressed juices. 135 West 50th St., New York, NY.

We’re excited to switch up our January exercise routine and try out CityRow, the latest in boutique fitness. The Union Square studio opened last week and features 50-minute signature classes that combine “high interval sweat and low resistance burn” on the Indo-Row WaterRower. 80 Fifth Ave., Suite 1501, New York, NY.
We love dinner and a movie at Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg. Enjoy a bowl of truffle butter popcorn, a reasonably priced glass of wine, and a unique indie flick for an out-of-the-box date night. This Friday, Nitehawk will feature the Coen Brothers’ debut feature film, Blood Simple, at midnight. 136 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn, NY. Click here.
Even though ‘Boardwalk Empire’ is between seasons, Prohibition is still very much en vogue. Don your sharpest 1920’s garb and head to Webster Hall, a venue that was reportedly owned by mobster Al Capone, for East Ville des Folies. This Prohibition style craft beer and whiskey festival features four floors of rare libations from 2:30-5:30 p.m. 125 East 11th St., New York, NY. More information here.
It’s a long weekend, so you have no excuse not to dance on the tables at a party brunch! We recently loved the bottomless bubbly and burlesque at Il Bastardo in Chelsea. You’ll have all day on Monday to lick your wounds. 191 7th Ave., New York, NY.
