What To Do In New York City This Weekend (March 24 – March 26)

Ashley is your semi-above-average 20 something living in Astoria who lives and breathes NYC life. She goes about her days looking forward to all the food she will consume. She also loves referencing Kanye West quotes in her articles whenever applicable.

Time to spring forward this weekend with some on your own March madness. Speakeasy parties, dancing in a museum, dessert goals and experiencing spring plants blossoming are on the horizon.

 

One Step Beyond-Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History hosts a different DJ every month in its Rose Center for Earth and Space. This Friday they will be featuring Classixx, Lloydski, and Alex Behnke as the opener. Tickets are $25 to $30 the day of the event, and beer and wine are served at the cash bar. Dancing one step beyond around earth and space never felt so good.

 

Dessert Goals-Dessert Fest

If you don’t have #dessertgoals, then you might as well have no goals. The 2nd annual Dessert Goals Fest is taking place this Saturday and Sunday in Williamsburg. The only tickets left are for the workshops and general admission at $50, which could be worth it for access to 20 of the best dessert vendors, free candy shop, a savory salt bar, access to a rooftop lounge, and an Instagram garden decorated for dessert photography. Every photo taken should clearly have #omgdessertgoals.

 

The Freedom Party at City Winery

Let freedom ring at City Winery this weekend. This legendary, long running old-school dance party was created in 2003, and is meant to bring different people together in unison for a classic NYC dance party.

Tickets are $20, and the music will predominantly hits from the 80s, 90s and 2000s that include hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock, reggae or house. Eclectic and fun for all.

 

Secret Speakeasy

The Museum of Interesting Things will take over the Lofts at Prince in Soho for a special Suffragette-themed party for the Museum this Sunday. It will feature a movie fest and party, where you obviously will need to dress like it’s 1925. There will be drinks (cash bar), free food and snacks, music and beautiful visuals, all for a ticket price of $10 to support the museum. Interesting indeed.

 

For events to keep you going throughout March, check out the below:

March Madness

The annual NCAA basketball tournament is upon us, and as usual, it is madness indeed. If you’re a college basketball fanatic, Madison Square Garden is actually hosting the NCAA East finals. If you’re into a team that isn’t on this side of the country, there are an insane amount of bars to watch so you won’t miss a minute of the madness.

Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in American Counterculture

The Museum of Arts and Design is featuring the exhibit “Counter-Couture: Handmade Fashion in an American Counterculture” to celebrate the handmade fashion and style of the 1960s and 1970s. Often referred to as the hippie movement, the Counterculture swept away the conformism of the previous decade and professed an alternative lifestyle whose effects still resonate today.

Georgia O’ Keeffe: Living Modern

The Brooklyn Museum and its yearlong feminist movement is now displaying the paintings, photography and clothing by the talented artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The exhibit takes a new look at how the renowned modernist artist proclaimed her progressive, independent lifestyle through a self-crafted public persona — including her clothing and the way she posed for the camera. Tickets are $6-$20.
