January NYC Events (01/11/22)

Pre Covid-19 we searched the internet everyday looking for the very best of What’s Happening, primarily on Manhattan’s WestSide, so that you didn’t have to.” We made it as easy as 1-2-3.
Covid has required some changes.

If you’re looking for the best things to do in NYC this week, or even for today, there are tons of fun options. Check out Dante’s Winter House pop-up in the Seaport, see a burlesque tribute to The Muppets at the Slipper Room, head to Updating and get on those ice bumper cars at Bryant Park! For more ideas, scroll down to see this week’s best things to do in NYC.

Make sure to check respective venues before you head out to make sure they’re open.

Here are 3 of my faves:

One of the most fun things to do at the annual Bryant Park Winter Village is to ride those bumper cars on ice and, as of this Friday, the slick autos will be back for you to play around with. Woohoo! Available between 2pm and 8pm on weekdays and 11am to 5pm on weekends, the cars will be in the park through Sunday, February 27—so you’ve got a little over a month to have some fun on the ice. New this year, the Bank of America Winter Village announced that it will also host special late-night rides—but no specifics on that just yet.

Nationally-recognized comedy show, UpDating, is finally returning to the stage after a long year away. Deal with your dating hang-ups front and center at this live romantic experiment. Two New Yorkers will be paired on-stage for a blind date, and you get to join in on the magic (or the meltdown). The show comes from NY-Based Comedian Brandon Berman and Dating Blogger Harrison Forman. For more details you can check out UpDating’s Instagram.

If you’re looking for a cute (and warm!) dining destination now that the weather has officially turned cold and the first snow hit the city, consider reserving one of the cozy yurts that have been set up outside of Fairfax, the all-day cafe and bar in Greenwich Village. Although the fabulous tents aren’t anything new, it is the first year that the eatery has decided to operate them on its own (in the past, they’ve been part of an experiential partnership with American Express).  There are three total yurts on premise and reservations for groups of up to four are available right here (just make sure to select the “yurt dining” option). The best part: diners can order from the spot’s a la carte menu, not having to worry about meeting a minimum or indulging in a prix-fixe offering. Fairfax’s sister restaurant, Jolene in NoHo, is also currently operating four heated yurts that you can reserve.

The best things to do in the winter in NYC

“The weather outside might be freezing, but the best things to do in winter in NYC will keep you cheery.Written by Shaye Weaver – TONY

New York City doesn’t shut down in the winter, thank you very much! We’re just turning up the heat on all there is to do here! There are a lot of incredible things to do all season long during the snowiest time of year, including great museum exhibits and winter pop-ups to keep this town entertained. For something a bit more snuggly, check out the free fireplaces to cozy up by in NYC or lounge inside a sauna at one of the best spas. Don’t forget that New York is absolutely gorgeous in winter, so bundle up and go out to admire all the snow-covered trees at the best NYC parks, and enjoy fun winter celebrations.”
