It’s time to get into the holiday spirit this weekend as you recover from your Thanksgiving day (or week) of gluttony.
Bryant Park is the crème de le crème of the NYC holiday season, mostly because of its extensive holiday market and free ice-skating. More importantly, their holiday tree is one that some could say is better than the one at Rockefeller Center. The annual lighting is taking place at 6 p.m. on December 2. It’s featuring a slew of Olympian and world champion figure skaters, festive music, and a fireworks display. This will surely get you in the holiday spirit.
Decorations are up and we're ready to light this beautiful tree. ? Join us for our annual Tree Lighting #Skatetacular next Friday, December 2nd at 6pm. . Our tale on ice features figure skaters @johnnygweir, @javierfernandezskater, #kimmymeissner, @weaver.poje, & @haydenettesusa skating to an original story about a very special family the night before Christmas. Including fireworks, audience interactive giveaways, and live music from @lapislunajazz, it all culminates in the lighting of our 50 ft Norway Spruce Tree. It's sure to be spectacular! . . . #bryantpark #wintervillage #treelighting #christmastree #iceskating
Schwick is taking place in Bushwick for this weekend only, and is just one of the many holiday markets that NYC has to offer (for a list of all others you can attend, go here). Schwick is special since it’s in a humongous warehouse, because duh, Brooklyn, and includes more than 120 of the most creative makers in NYC. The event is free to the public, so start your holiday shopping early and support your local artisans.
Come out and meet me this weekend at Schwick holiday market, and take advantage of my sale on all bracelets, buy one get one half off. #holidayshopping #craftshow #shophandmade #smallbusinesses #holidaymarket #brooklyn #girlboss #supportlocal #beadsbydiansia #shopsmall #handmadejewelry #jewelrydesigner #madeinnyc #shoplocal #schwickholidaymarket
Try to forget about the atrocity that is Santacon and attend this fun loving pub-crawl instead. The 6th Annual New York City Ugly Sweater Pub Crawl is taking place on December 3 and features up to ten of the East Village’s top rated venues. At only $10, you get great drink specials while keeping it cozy with your ugly sweater.
We all know that Mariah Carey’s favorite (and relevant) time of year is now, so get on your dancing shoes and get down to the Bell House on December 3 to celebrate the best Christmas album of the 1990’s (and all time). In case you don’t agree, the DJ will also be spinning the hottest hits from the 90’s in general. As always, it’s free, which is all you want for Christmas, right?
