Need some weekend plans? If not, it's a little weird that you're hanging out on a page about weekend events, isn't it?
Anyway, the best thing about living in New York City is that there's always something for everyone to do that they'll actually enjoy.
Whether you're an animal lover, activist, a whiskey snob (we say as tooootal snobs ourselves), or just looking for a good party (or all of the above)– NYC got you.
As usual, we've found the best of everything going down this weekend– check out who's marching on Trump Tower this weekend in civil rights violations, or attend an insane gilded age secret speakeasy party, or adopt a puppy!
Personally, we're leaning towards a whiskey walking tour of lower Manhattan. No promises that we'll still be able to walk by the end of the night though, tbh.
Friday, March 3rd
1. Whiskey Walk
If you're too cool for your typical bar crawl– grab your Bukowski collection of choice and probably a bottle of water, whiskey walk responsibly, y'all!
From 12:00 p.m. until 3 p.m., you'll get 8 premium Irish Whiskey tastes at 8 classic NYC bars– with a portion of all sales going to a local charity. Can't beat that.
Support not just these funny ladies performing hilarious stand up at Littlefield (622 Degraw Street - Brooklyn), but a cause that needs you. This fundraiser for the Committee to Recall Judge Aaron "You-Suck-At-Your-One-Job" Persky was formed after the unacceptable verdict of Brock Turner's rape case.
Not-so-funny situation, but like we said– very funny ladies, including Lane Moore, Janelle James, Marcia Belsky, Giulia Rozzi, Arti Gollapudi, Marlena Rodriguez, and hosts Blair Socci and Farah Brook. Besides stand up, there will also be raffles, F*ck Rape Culture merch, and more!
Saturday, March 4th
In this "playoffs"-level comedy show at Broadway Comedy Club (318 West 53rd Street), you the audience will decide who made your sides sides split the most– the girls, or the boys?
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, our super dope, hilarious, and very competent Editorial Intern, Katie Johantgen, will be doin' stand up! When (not if) you buy your tickets, make sure to select her name at check out for a discounted rate for fans of Katie. Because she's the best. Yay Katie.
Supporters of the Standing Rock Sioux, their sacred lands, and clean water (really not asking for much, here) will be marching on Trump Tower, six days before the national Rise with Standing Rock mobilization in the nation's capitol.
At 1:00 p.m., they will rally at The New York Public Library's main branch (Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street), and begin marching at 2:00 p.m.
Get your Gatsby on at this prohibition-themed New York Adventure Club LINK soiree. They'll be partying it up at an undisclosed gilded age apartment, where some of NYC's most elite members of society resided, including John Jacob Astor II, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Washington Irving.
When you purchase your tickets, you'll not only get the location, but also access to booze, bites, and the interactive installations they'll be setting up, which include, magician games and demonstrations, and antique props and parlor games.
Flapper fare is optional, but wouldn't you feel out of place without some fringe?
It's time to pre-game for SoHo's new chocolate museum at this guided, walking tour through some of NYC's yummiest chocolatiers. The five on-the-go tastings include treats like truffles, salty caramels, dark chocolate almond bark, and chocolate macarons.
You'll begin at Chelsea Market and snake through a trail of decadent chocolate until your group reaches Vosges haut Chocolat on Spring Street.
Sunday, March 5th
Have you been thinking about getting a new furry friend? Mull over your decision (because it's sooo easy to make an un-biased decision while immersed in a sea of puppies) at the Harley-Davidson in Manhattan (376 Broadway).
From 1 p.m. until 4 p.m., they'll have dogs looking for homes that you'll get to play with. You can also check out which pups will be attending at the Ruff House Rescue website.[Feature Image Courtesy Pinterest]
