Hip, Convenient Hotels in SOHO for the Holidays
Fill up on Chef N. Salaam’s $95, three-course Thanksgiving feast of White Truffle Cacio Pepe, a full Fossil Farms Turkey dinner, and warm Pecan Tart with Browned Butter Maple Ice Cream, right here at NOMO Kitchen. Then, spend the rest of your long weekend vacation walking, running, ice skating, and shopping it off across the city. The official start of the holiday season means there are even more things to do in NYC than normal – from Manhattan parks and shows, to fleeting Brooklyn markets with free cocktails and the hottest handmade gifts in town. Here are a few ideas as you plan your post-Turkey-Day attack:
FREE Ice Skating at Bryant Park Winter Village
6th Ave. & 40th St.
Everyone skates for free at this 17,000-sq-ft outdoor rink. All you have to pay for are rentals if you don’t have your own pair. The line can be long, so don’t be afraid to take turns browsing the 128 festive shops also filling the lawn. In case you want to warm up after hitting the ice, there’s also a heated onsite restaurant, lounge and bar with lovely views of the park’s holiday décor.
Sleep No More
530 W 27th St.
When better to catch the most talked about immersive theater experience in NYC than a long holiday weekend? That way you have plenty of time to find your way out…
Unique Gifts for Everyone at Brooklyn Holiday Bazaar
November 28-29th, 11am-6pm
501 Union St.
The totally trendy, handmade local finds at this pop-up market are so awesome, you’re going to want two of everything – one to give as a gift, the other for yourself! Thankfully, the free cocktails are just for you, with a live DJ to groove along to as you sip and shop.
