Twelfth Night on Broadway at the Belasco Theater

This is a must see performance for Shakespeare fans and family this season. Kudos to The Shakespeare Globe for creating their signature stunning set. Don’t miss this exquisite comedy full of brilliant direction and freshly staged performances. Stephen Frye as Malvolio is the cherry on top and we’re still laughing a day later.

Middle Branch in Murray Hill

From the cocktail connoisseurs who brought you Little Branch, Middle Branch is a great little speakeasy-esque spot in Murray Hill. Sip on one of their special drinks… or have a bartender customize a concoction to your taste. The whiskey sour with egg white- yes, egg white –  will change your life, or at the very least, your opinion on frothy egg white and whiskey.
