>Are you a fan of craft beer? Then get your glass ready for the 7th Annual NYC Beer Week, running from February 19th to the 28th. The event highlights forty different breweries from all over New York, including local institutions like Brooklyn Brewery, Big Alice Brewing and more. With over two hundred events taking place all over the city, there's no shortage of things to see and do – and drink!
January 1st has come and gone, but if you still haven't gotten your New Year fix, then check out the Better Chinatown Society's celebration of the Chinese New Year on February 8th at Sara D. Roosevelt Park. Located less than twenty minutes from our Times Square hotel, celebrate the Year of the Monkey with a massive five-hundred thousand firecracker display (yes, you read that number right), as well as lion dances with colorful masks and costumes, craft vendors and food booths filled with dumplings and other tasty traditional goodies.
Feel like disrobing for a cause? This Valentine's Day, do-gooders with a distinct lack of shame can take part in Cupid's Undie Run, a one-mile run that takes participants through the streets to the Brass Monkey Bar and was conceived to raise funds for the Children's Tumor Foundation. The catch? You have to be in your underwear. Participants have stretched just what that means over the years with fun and ridiculous costumes.
