(4/4-4/10) “Looking for what to do in NYC this week and weekend? The city continues to bounce back, with many venues dropping their mask and vaccine requirements. Expect a revitalized city this week and this weekend, with new restaurants, festivals, pop ups, and all kind of other things to do in NYC this week.”

ON THE LINE
The Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) is launching a new event series called On The Line, which features conversations and cooking demos from prominent NYC chefs. On Monday, you can learn from Einat Admony of Balaboosta and Taim fame. Next week you can also experience a fine cooking intensive and a session on the Essential Wines of Spain.
An annual rite of spring is back as the Macy’s Flower Show has launched its 2022 season. Look for lush, inspiring gardens inside the flagship’s main floor and balcony level and in the Broadway windows (that’s a previous year’s show pictured here; 2022’s iteration highlights “impact, energy, and bold modernism,” with a special focus on scents).
For all the rest of great things to do this week go HERE.
