The Top 7 Best Things to do in NYC Nov 30-Dec 6
EVENTS/ENTERTAINMENT/THINGS TO DO
NUTCRACKER ROUGE COCKTAILS & BURLESQUE AT HOME
Online | $150+
I am a huge fan of all things Company XIV! Really, it is the best entertainment you can get in NYC off Broadway. And, while it’s been unfortunate that the pandemic has not allowed for live indoor entertainment, Company XIV has concocted Nutcracker Rouge Cocktails and Burlesque at Home. Stream weekly Nutcracker Rouge performances, and with a boozy addition, you can choose from 3 packages that include the entertainment, cocktail lessons, and signature cocktail recipes, and more! It is no wonder this would make the best things to do in NYC Nov 30-Dec 6 list. This is sure to be just as a unique and amazing experience as their live shows, so you do not want to miss it! Plus, it’s a great way to continue supporting businesses and performers during these trying times.
“Let our pasties perk you up with brand new and signature acts from Nutcracker Rouge while our baroque burlesque beauties guide you step-by-step through sensual cocktail lessons. Get shaking in the comfort of your own home with our VIP Luxe Package replete with premium spirits, decadent garnishes and luxurious barware delivered to your door. Episodes premiere weekly beginning Thanksgiving Day, culminating in a bubbly performance on New Year’s Eve. It’s a delicious treat that lasts all holiday season and the perfect gift for cocktail connoisseurs and burlesque bon vivants.” – Company XIV
Museum of Sex, 233 5th Ave, New York, NY 10016 | $36+
Surely, a visit to The Museum of Sex will be a fun and interesting time. And one of the featured exhibits is Super Funland. “Super Funland: Journey into the Erotic Carnival examines the sexual history of the carnival. An historical exploration of carnival’s roots is accompanied by an interactive exhibition of thirteen erotically-charged games and amusements that allows visitors to lose themselves in the carnality, decadence, and joy of a reimagined carnival.” – Super Funland

If you have been wanting to tour NYC, then now is the perfect time to book a custom designed private tour with Sarah, Luis, or Tom. They are all NYC experts and enjoy showing others around the city they love. Also, you can customize the tour to fit your own personal interests.

FÉLIX FÉNÉON: THE ANARCHIST AND THE AVANT-GARDE— FROM SIGNAC TO MATISSE AND BEYOND
Ending soon! Now-January 2, 2021 | $25+
MoMA, 11 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019
Only on view until January 2, 2021, you do not want to miss Félix Fénéon’s exhibit. Fénéon was a prominent figure that created the term “Neo-Impressionism.” Fénéon helped develop the careers of renowned artists such as Georges Seurat and Henri Matisse. Truly, the exhibit is unique and brimming with historical information as well as beautiful and famous art pieces on display by the artists that Fénéon supported.
COOPER & GORFER: BETWEEN THESE FOLDED WALLS, UTOPIA
Ending Soon! Now – February 7, 2021 | $24+
Fotografiska, 281 Park Avenue South, New York, NY 10010
Certainly, Fotografiska is a unique museum, with its focus on photography. Only on view until February 7, 2021, you do not want to miss Cooper and Gorfer’s exhibit. “In a series of richly-imagined portraits, the artistic duo Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer explore the idea of Utopia in the age of the new diaspora. Young women who have been forced to uproot their lives are photographed like goddesses inside lustrous and surrealist-inspired sets. These vivid portraits are a judicious and of-the-moment examination of our historical memory and possibility.” – Fotografiska
1652 2nd Avenue (Enter Through Schaller’s Stube), New York, NY 10028
While travel is limited this year, you can transport yourself to the Alps with a visit to Hütte. Sure to be an especially memorable time, Hütte offers “a cozy, winter retreat in the middle of NYC. It is a tented, heated outdoor dining experience like no other. You’ll find hearty Alpine comfort food including game meat and fondue, paired masterfully with a wonderful Austrian wine list. Make sure to grab a blanket and cozy up with a piping hot Glühwein on your next visit.” – Hütte
