  • Attending Shakespeare in the Park in NYC for Summer?

    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    You’ve probably heard about NYC’s Shakespeare in the Park – it’s one of the most anticipated city events in the Summer. To give you a bit of history, Shakespeare in the Park is created by Joseph Papp in the 1960s. The Public Theatre’s show gives viewers free productions based on the works of William Shakespeare.

    This season offers Twelfth Night and is being played from July 17th to August 19th 2018. This production is directed by Oskar Eustis and Kwame Kwei-Armah. Performances are usually from Tuesday to Sunday, starting at 8pm. The show is in Delacorte Theater in Central Park, and there are available instructions on Google on how to score free tickets to the show, and we’ve linked one here

    The best part of this annual program is that whatever the weather is, they do not cancel scheduled shows – however the crowd is not allowed to bring umbrellas, so make sure to get the comfiest ponchos – designs are available on our website!

    See our favorite poncho from the collection that will definitely suit your Shakespeare night: https://aprilmarin.com/products/katelyn-poncho-black?variant=38751240201

  • NYC Restaurant Week is Coming Up!

    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    It is undeniable that NYC Restaurant week is one of the most sought-after events of the year for NYC residents. Why not when it gives you the chance to explore NYC’s best restaurants for the most scrumptious dishes at affordable prices?

    Participating restaurants offer two-course prix-fixe menus, which are specially priced for lunch and three-course prix-fixe menus for dinner meals. This Summer’s NYC Restaurant Week opens in July 23 through August 17. Reservations open July 9th. Bear in mind that not all restaurants offer their prix-fixe menu on weekends, so better reserve a weekday to celebrate this week.

    We checked NYC Go’s website for the complete list of participants for the Restaurant Week and as expected, there’s a long list. So we helped you pick two of the most interesting restaurants to try for the celebration!

    American Cut Steakhouse, Midtown Manhattan

    Who says no to steak? No one! Indulge yourself with the finest choices from the best steakhouse in NYC on Restaurant Week – here are some of their RW offerings that you must not resist: Ricotta Ravioli, Bell & Evans Chicken, Ratatouille, and S’mores Custard Cake! And hey don’t forget your Glatt Kosher! They are located in 109 E 56th St, opens from 5 to 10pm.

    Casa Nonna, Midtown

    Ready for some excellent choices? We are! This restaurant would make you feel like you’re really in your Grandma’s house because they serve only the finest…like your nonna does! The price will range from $38-$45 for three courses, and you can enjoy the happy hour, iced coffee, hot tea, and appetizers. This amount will also get you a delicious dinner meal such as their Steak and Fish Dishes. You won’t go home craving for dessert because you’ll likely get that tiramisu! 

    Don’t forget to tell us about your favorites in the course of the NYC Restaurant Week so we can feature it in the blog!

  • July 7 – #WarmUp2018 Music Fest!

    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    Okay, you’ve got your Summer Fashion on – now what to do next for this season? It’s too early for the next Coachella so why don’t you head on to a Summer concert to remember?

    There is no better feeling than being among people with the same interest as yours, singing loudly and having a couple of hours of uninterrupted inspiration from the artists. Summer is one of the best seasons to restore the spirit and refresh your soul with music as the focus.

    NYC is probably one of the best homes for musicians that’s why it is a no brainer to hold a show with a wide range of artists, emerging and established, local and global. The best thing about this festival is that the first 100 NYC high school students to attend each Warm Up Date will be receiving one free ticket on a first-come, first served basis!

    This event is organized by a dynamic curatorial committee led by Eliza Ryan and Naomi Zeichner among many others.

    For July 7, indulge yourself with performances from DJ Playero, Key! & Kenny Beats, DJ Kass, New Impressionz, Tierra Whack, TAYHANA, Sabine Blaizin and many more!

  • Experience Summer Solstice in NYC!

    0 comments / Posted by April Marin

    Okay, you might or might not have heard of this – but what is Summer Solstice? Technically speaking, it is an astronomical occasion where the Earth is titled in its greatest inclination toward the sun, providing the longest period between sunrise and sunset.

    In the early ages, native American tribes spend the longest day of the year by performing Sun Dance, and other historical celebrations of the summer solstice. Millennials might not know what to do on this day, so here are a few tips from your AM Girls:

    Get Your Yoga on with Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga

    For the past years, this group is helping New Yorkers greet the morning sun on the first day of summer in Times Square by giving out a free hour-long class from 9 am to 7:30 pm. Have a sesh with your best bud by registering at the Solstice and receive a complimentary yoga mat!

    Hop around in the Big Apple

    The streets are watching and so are you. NYC has probably the most number of performers in subways and streets, so you will never go wrong in roaming around after a good yoga session and just feel the vibe and be inspired with how these musicians passionately play their instruments.

    Find the best Restaurant in the City

    This requires preparation. Everyone is most likely spending the day outside, so it is best to find your ideal restaurant or café where you’ll spend an hour or two munching on the most scrumptious dishes you’ve been craving for. Make reservations as early as two weeks ahead to avoid any hassle. After lunch, walk around NYC and find the best hotdogs or dessert and you’ll surely have a great time.

    Fire in the Park

    Historically, Summer solstice are celebrated based on fire, so it is undeniable that many people gather along different parks in picnic and planning a nighttime bonfire after the beautiful sunset. Make sure to bring enough for the family or friends (hey, s’mores are a must!) so you have a great time while enjoying each other’s company while watching the night sky.
