This weekend I’m playing tour guide for my parental unit. However, they did not come here to see their favorite daughter, they came here because my mom wants to shop at the holiday markets. But, while they’re here I’m going to take advantage of this time with them. I’ve curated a list of all the expensive restaurants in the city (rated by wine selection) I want to go to, as well as, a list of events I’m going to drag them to. While I’m out milking this time with my parents for all they’re, I mean it’s, worth, here’s a list of events going on in the city this weekend.
Christmas with Bria @ 59 Cooper Square – Dec. 7-8
This event is a charity concert for the victims of the war in Ukraine. It is FREE admission, but donations are welcome.
Exhibitionism the Rolling Stones @ Industria Superstudio in West Village – Nov. 12 through March 12th
I actually have tickets to this event for this weekend. I am very excited about this event. It consists of over 500 rare and personal items of the Rolling Stones across 9 galleries. Definitely a must see! Tickets are around $37. If you held on to your student ID, you can get in for cheaper!
Columbus Circle Holiday Market @ Columbus Circle (in case you missed the name) – Dec.2-24th
Now that the Macy’s Day Parade has passed, Columbus Circle is ready to host their annual holiday market. It is very similar to the Union Square market, but slightly smaller.
First Friday @ The Frick Collection – Dec. 2nd 6pm-9pm (held the first Friday of every month)
The first Friday of every month the Frick Collection lets you in for free from 6pm-9pm. “Museum admission and gallery programs will be free from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first Friday evening of the month (except January). Visitors will have access to the permanent collection and special exhibition galleries, and enjoy talks and lectures by museum educators and curators, as well as music and dance performances and open sketching in the Garden Court (complimentary materials provided by the Frick).” -frick.org
Tree Light Skate-tacular @ Bryant Park – Dec. 2 6pm
In case you missed the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting, there are plenty more happening around the city. If you have a tree in your neighborhood, I’m sure there’s going to be a huge spectacle around lighting it. This tree lighting is in the Bryant Park Winter Village. The tree overlooks the ice rink. Tip: The ice rink in Bryant Park is the cheapest of the major Manhattan rinks to skate at. It’s $15 if you don’t have skates and free if you do.
