Love Is All Around... Whether You Like It or Not! 8 Ways to Make This Weekend Incredible in NYC

The Weekend is coming up, New York City. To us that means a whole lot of fun. Of course, it also means Valentine's Day.

Yup, Valentine's Day is on Sunday and if you haven't heard, it's supposed to be kind of nuts. Of course, the city throws down plenty of Valentine's Day events. There are plenty of Valentine's Day events geared towards single people, too.

So, yes, we will be thinking about Valentine's Day as we head into the weekend, but we'd also like to remind the planet that there are two other days this weekend that are not Valentine's Day.

Believe it or not, we're excited for this weekend because we think weekends should be filled with fun, dancing, and alcohol.

Want to know what's up in NYC for this coming weekend? Well, great. We've got a handy list for you below, so get out your calendars and phones, and start planning.

Thursday, February 11th

1. Nvr Sleep (90 Wythe Avenue - Brooklyn)


Our favorite DJ Rodney Hazard will be spinning sets at Kinfolk 90 on February 11th, and you know you've got to be there.

We mean, we’ll be there. Don't you want to come out and hang out with us?


The party will jam from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and there’s no cover, so your excuses for why you can't come have just officially run out.

Also, Rodney’s mixes are fire, and if you want to start getting hype about jamming to his music, you can do so here. This event is for sleepers, dreamers, and those who love to dance. We mean, come on, could it get any cooler?

Friday, February 12th

2. ALL BLVCK (59 West 21st Street)


It's Black History Month in NYC, which means an ALL BLVCK party is just what the doctor ordered.

It's going to be wild. There will be dancing, alcohol, sparklers, and plenty of party people, doing like, way too much dancing.

It'll be held on Friday, February 12th at Studio XXI, and the party will rage from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. The best part? There will be an open bar from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., so our best prediction is that the fun will be bursting at the seams.

There will be hundreds of NYC's most beautiful, debonair, elegant young alumni, graduates, and professionals in attendance. If you want to be a part of it, get your tickets here.

3. MoMA Scavenger Hunt and Cocktails (160 West 54th Street)

todayisartday #LoveAffairWeek continues… In the early 1900s, #PabloPicasso had a relationship with Fernande Olivier, a French artist and model. They had a really passionate and also violent relationship that lasted over 7 years. When their relationship ended, #Picasso asked his mistress not to publish memoirs of their relationship. He even gave her money to dissuade her. The book was finally published in 1988, after their lifetime. She is thought to be one of the figures of "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" on view at @themuseumofmodernart in New York. #todayisartday #art #arte #kunst #artist #oiloncanvas #artwork #arthistory #fineart #artoftheday #artpic #dailyart #artgallery #love #loveaffair #picasso #pablopicasso #cubism #moma #museumofmodernart #nyc #newyork

Haven't been to the MoMA yet? Well, we have the perfect opportunity for you to change that. What about the rest of you? Have you been to the MoMA, and love art and drinks?

Well then, looks like you should be a part of this as well.


On this scavenger hunt, you'll solve clues and complete picture challenges right alongside all the masterpieces housed in the MoMA. After you've completed the challenge, you'll meet at Old Castle Pub where the drinks will keep flowing.
