Got a Boo or Not! NYC is the Place for Valentine’s Day Plans
February is the shortest and one of the busiest months of the year over here at the NLL office. Along with the bulk of beauty loot we are testing, we are also celebrating Black History month, Valentine’s Day is also on Saturday, and the world is getting ready to descend upon Brooklyn and NYC. Living in NYC THIS WEEKEND seems to be the hottest thing since slice bread. So whether you’ve got a boo or not, in love or not, NYC is the place to be for Valentine’s Day plans. To help you have an enjoyable time, this Valentine’s Day weekend, we have mapped out a few activities happening in the streets of NYC, to help you plan.
Fashion: Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week
Fall 2015 season of New York Fashion Week begins on Thursday, February 12th through 19th. And if you haven’t heard already, you’ll be witnessing the end of an era, as this will be the last Mercedes-Benz sponsored New York Fashion Week.
Sports: NBA All Star Weekend
For the first time, Brooklyn will host NBA’s elite when Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden host All Star Weekend. The Rising Stars Challenge will be on Friday, February 13th and the Slam Sunk contest on Saturday, February 14th at the Barclay Center. While the Celebrity game is held on Friday, February 13th and the All-Star Game on Sunday, February 15th at Madison Square Garden.
Movie: 50 Shades of Grey
The movie that’s on everyone’s lips, 50 Shades of Grey, opens in theaters with record-setting presales on Friday, February 14, Valentine’s Day. I haven’t read the book, but the rumor is the movie lives up to the hype. Definitely, trying out my new 50 Shades of Grey nail polish by O.P.I and taking the hubby to catch this flick.
Music: Soul Legends
So fashion, sports and movie is not what you had in mind. Well how about a soulful night? Catch the incomparable force of the lady of soul Patti LaBelle alongside R&B’s Billy Ocean for a night called Soul Legends, at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn on Sunday, February 15th.
If Sunday doesn’t work for you, then on Saturday, February 14th – Valentine’s Day night, take in Jamaican Reggae royalty with Singers in Action. Shaggy, Maxi Priest, and Sanchez will fill the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn with the sounds of Lovers Rock, Reggae and Ska.
Which event will you be attending, or wish you could attend on Valentine's Day?
