2012 Hot Chocolate Festival at The City Bakery

Is there a doctor in the house? Specifically one that specializes in chocolate addiction
The best part of winter is of course is heading out of the cold and making a nice warm cup of hot chocolate.  And one of the best places in New York City is The City Bakery. I tend to like their hot chocolate because it's thick and frothy - not to mention they offer giant homemade marshmallows to put into it.

City Bakery knows it has one of the best hot chocolate around, which is why they've created their own Hot Chocolate Festival.

Starting tomorrow, City Bakery offers a special hot chocolate concoction each day for a month (in addition to their regular cups of milk and/or dark chocolate).  Go early for the special flavors, otherwise you'll have to settle for regular. Either way it's a win-win situation (it is chocolate afterall).

I'm looking forward to "Sunken Treasure", "Moulin Rouge", and "Ode to the Polar Bear." How about you?

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
