February in NYC is still chilly and dreary but that doesn’t mean you should stay in your apartment all month. There are many great events this month that can brighten up your cold winter day and many opportunities to feel the love around Valentine’s Day.
New York City Winter Wine Fest - February 4
Warm up from the cold with over 250 high-quality, unique wines from around the world for tasting. Expect small boutique vineyards producing better quality wines at more affordable prices and cleanse your palette between tastings with cheese, bread, and crudités, while listening to live jazz. Start at 3:30pm at the PlayStation Theater, 44th and Broadway.
The Super Bowl - February 5
New England Patriots at Atlanta Falcons
NYC is a great place to be during the big game. Why? Because there are so many incredible bars and parties where you can watch all the NFL-action and do a little indoor tailgating. Going to a Super Bowl bash is certainly one of the best things to do in February. This year, Lady Gaga performs the halftime show at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The game kicks off at 6:30pm ET.
The Chinese New Year Parade - February 5
Check out Chinatown's annual Lunar New Year celebration for stunning visuals, tantalizing treats and impressive performances. This street party features all sorts of vendors, food and festivities for all ages to welcome the Year of the Rooster. The parade wends its way through the main streets of Little Italy and Chinatown, and festivities start at 1pm.
New York Fashion Week - February 9 - 17
New York Fashion Week rolls around once again, running from February 9th through to 17th. Kicking off the first leg of a global month-long celebration of style, the Big Apple’s offering is generally considered the most commercial of all the fashion weeks, but we have a feeling that’s all about to change. From designer departures to a switch in line-up, this season is getting a shake-up and with the country in the midst of political change, we’re sure that designers are going to have a lot to say.
