What's Up This Weekend?!
The Volo RoundUp NYC Edition is here! Are you ready for some fun?! This is your weekly guide to NYC Social approved events around the City. Whether you’re looking to give back, get fit, find balance, or be a social butterfly, we have something for everyone! Even though the air is turning *slightly* colder, that’s okay! Now is the time of year for the outdoor festive activities. Those outings are usually coupled with hot cocoa, so, we’re okay with it! Enjoy your weekend!
This week’s Social and Purpose portions of the RoundUp are very near and dear to our heart here at NYC Social. Our annual kickball tournament, Kickin’ It With Santa, will FINALLY happen this weekend after months of planning. You know we play so kids can play for free, so our foundation’s end of year campaign So Every Child Can Play is alive and well! Any donation (tax deductible) will help us help more families, so give the gift of play this holiday season!
Ice Skating NYC
Starting NOW | NYC Parks
I bet the FIRST place you thought of when you read Ice Skating NYC was Rock Center! Makes sense, because the beautiful tree and all the lights and love and… the list goes on! Rock Center is a beauty, but is also the most expensive! Everyone should do it at least once, but this time of year it will run you about $28-$33, and that is just admission. Cheaper but still beautiful other options include Wollman Rink in Central Park ($12 admission) and The Winter Village rink at Bryant Park (FREE). Bring your own skates if you have!
12/2 | Broadway Dance Center | 7:30 – 9:00PM
Broadway Dance Center, a very famous dance studio here in NYC, is offering this new class on a guest artist basis. The artist, Angel Kaba, currently an International Artistic and Creative Director, has performed and collaborated with numerous respectable performing artists. She has danced for many renowned world-wide companies. She is now taking her talents to Broadway Dance Center in this OPEN LEVEL class that is only $22! Don’t miss out. Challenge yourself in new ways to increase your overall fitness!
Movember No More
11/30 | Smile Direct Club Flatiron | 10AM – 3PM
Specifically for our HONORABLE men who grew out their facial hair for #noshavenovember #movember to bring awareness to men’s health and prostate cancer, have no fear. Your FREE hot towel shave is waiting for you at Smile Direct Club on 5th Ave! Start your holiday month with a fresh shave, all complimentary. Amazing job over the course of November!
Christmas Tree Lightings 🎄
12/1 & 12/2 | Queens & Park Avenue
If you miss the big tree lighting at Rockefeller Center, that is a-okay! You have 3 extra special tree lightings happening this very weekend, and I can guarantee you the crowd will be MUCH smaller and there will be TONS more in fun activities leading up to the main event. Saturday will be the 6th annual Astoria Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting at Astoria Park. There will be a train ride! Then Sunday you have the Park Avenue Tree Lighting at 6:30PM and the Queens Botanical Garden lighting starting at 12PM with holiday crafts, Santa, singing, and more!
