It’s that time of the year folks. Love is in the air and it’s time to dote on your loved one even more. My Husband Joe and I are always looking for new and exciting things to do for Valentines day. After 18 years together , it is important to keep the passion and excitement going. This Valentines I have a few suggestions I wanted to share with you all.
Valentines Day , Joe and I are heading to see the fabulous Sleep No More . An immersive, site-specific, interactive work of theatre created by British theatre company Punchdrunk, based on Punchdrunk’s original 2003 London production, their 2009 collaboration with Boston’s American Repertory Theatre, and William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Sleep No More is set in a building with five floors of theatrical action, putatively called the McKittrick Hotel, though with many rooms and features not normally associated with hotels, including those which resemble an antiquated lunatic asylum, doctor’s offices, children’s bedrooms, a cemetery, indoor courtyards, shops, a padded cell, a ballroom, taxidermist’s menageries, and so on. The actors and their environment all adopt the dress, decor, and aesthetic style of the early 20th century, inspired by the shadowy and anxious atmosphere offilm noir. The production “leads its audience on a merry, macabre chase up and down stairs, and through minimally illuminated, furniture-cluttered rooms and corridors. Audience members begin their journey in a fully operational lounge, the Manderley Bar, from which they enter an elevator that transports them to the major floors of the “hotel.” ( info from Wikipedia ).
The Nomad Hotel Upstairs . Sink into a leather couch, order a martini and listen to live jazz acts as Granny nominee Stacey Orrico who will play through February 13th. Joe and I have been to the NoMad Hotel a few times for a cocktail, it is one of my favorite hotel bars in the City, very sexy and luxurious. Perfect for Valentines day with a loved one.
American Museum of Natural History. Taste The Museum : A Walking Food Tour – The History of Chocolate . Take an after-hours culinary journey through the Museum and trace the history of chocolate. We will trace the beloved food and drink back to its origins in Mesoamerica nearly 4,000 years ago, and explore the culinary history of chocolate, complete with tastings of chocolates, with inspiration from the Museum’s Hall of Mexico and Central America. Brooklyn cacao stars Michael and Rick Mast will lead a bean to bar lecture and offer a tasting of six samples .
