Here are our top picks for making plans in New York City this week!
Monday, January 27: Crack up with this group of female comedians at “Saw Her Stand Up There.” One World Symphony maestro Sung Jin Hong has reimagined the dearly departed AMC series in his new mini opera, Breaking Bad–Ozymandias, combining it with poet Percy Bysshe Shelley’s ode to impermanence, “Ozymandias.”
Tuesday, January 28: Meet New York City’s Borough Presidents at Crain’s Business Breakfast!
Wednesday, January 29: The Grady Alexis Gallery at El Taller Latino Americano presents “New York: City and Nature,” an art exhibition featuring the work of Sidney Harris, Antoinette Janecki and Toni Serio, three artists who, inspired by New York, approach figurative painting in entirely distinct ways. Trivia Night at the New York Transit Museum.
Thursday, January 30: Attend a screening of Hitchcock’s The Birds at the Museum of Modern Art.
Saturday, February 1: Last chance to visit Super Bowl Boulevard, the place to be during the NY/NJ week-long Super Bowl frenzy. This is an opportunity for diehard NFL fans to take a picture of the Lombardi Trophy, football’s biggest honor up close; for kids who want to try kicking a field goal through the arches or get an autograph from current and retired NFL players. There will also be a toboggan run ($5 charge, with the proceeds going to the charity MillionTreesNYC).
Sunday, February 2: The day of the Super Bowl at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. For those who don’t want to stay at home to watch the game, Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema is hosting a Super Bowl party where you can watch the game on the biggest screen possible. The movie theater/restaurant will also have drink specials with beers from each team’s home region. And, for those who do not want to see Bruno Mars during the Halftime Show, the lobby of The Nitehawk will be showing The Puppy Bowl.
