A Boozy Brunch By Boat

February 22, 2017

Brunch

Looking for a unique way to take in NYC while also enjoying brunch and a cocktail? Look no further; every Saturday and Sunday, Classic Harbor Line offers buffet brunch cruises around Manhattan. For over two and a half hours, indulge in a delicious spread featuring New York’s favorite brunch food, and enjoy a complimentary champagne, Bloody Mary, or Mimosa while taking in the sights of the city. Highlights include the George Washington Bridge, Battery Park and Financial District, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and Roosevelt Island. And don’t worry about the cold winter chill, either. The boat has indoor seating— and plenty of cocktails— to keep you nice and warm. Tickets can sell out, so be sure to secure your spot ahead of time. Discounted tickets can be purchased here. The cruise is $68 for adults and departs from Chelsea Piers (Pier 62 - W. 22nd and Hudson River).  Don’t miss out on this one of a kind experience!

Orchid Show

February 13, 2017

MDNY_orchids
It's only mid-February, but we can still think ahead to spring. March can still be quite cold, but toward the end we can usually start to see a change in the weather pattern. Of course spring means flowers. What better way to kick off spring a bit early than at the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden. See beautiful hanging orchids in the conservatory, which will make you think of spring. There are also poetry readings, dance performances, orchid care demonstrations, and Orchid Evenings where you can sip a cocktail while viewing the show. The Orchid Show begins February 18 and runs through April 9. Enjoy!
