New York City is known for its beautiful night lights year round and, of course, for its abundant Christmas decorations! People travel from all over the globe to visit NYC during this time of the year, as well as New Yorkers also have a great time!

NYC’s 1st Winter Lantern Festival will happen through January 6, at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, Staten Island!

What to expect?

To start, you’ll see around 40 LED installations that can be as tall at 30 feet up, spread throughout 7 acres of land and over 30,000 Chinese lanterns.

It’s a fantastic experience for all ages that shows the beauty of the Chinese culture, with art works, dances and so much more!

The thematic lanterns installations have curious names: Light Tunnel, Wonderland, Sea World, Animal Kingdom, Chinese lights, Panda Paradise (ha! cute!) and Holiday Zone!

Oh! There is also a huge dragon!

“In Chinese culture, dragons are used to symbolize power and strength. They are often depicted in the colors red and gold, which represent good fortune and neutrality.”

In addition, entertainments are varied! Face changing, martial arts shows and lion dance. The water sleeve dances can be traced all the way back to 221 B.C., when dancers used clothing and other techniques to elongate their arms, creating an eye-catching performance. Plus, there is still sugar painting and a fun zone!

Oh! And the process of creating these lanterns is crazy! Take a look at the video below!

Learning Some Beats With STOMP!

If you haven’t heard about Stomp, it’s about time! Founded in the UK, back in 1991, today they are world famous, creating the most impressive percussion acts with unexpected objects and body parts! Get ready to feel your bones shake!

I absolutely L-O-V-E Stomp!

If you haven’t heard about them, they are an Off Broadway show, that was founded in the Brighton, United Kingdom in 1991 by Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell. Today they are world famous and attract audiences that come from all over the globe.

Their show takes place in a great spot in the trendy East Village and are always super full, when not, totally sold out!

In short, they are “a unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy”. And, their comedy acts are truly hilarious!

The most amazing thing is that there is absolutely no dialogue throughout the entire show, but these guys are experts in getting you crackin’ in your seat!

They literally create some of the most astounding and impressive percussion acts, using countless unexpected objects and body parts.

“Matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats at STOMP, the inventive and invigorating stage show that’s dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm.”

We spoke to, and learned some beats with 3 of their NYC performers: Desmond Howard, Jasmine Joyner and Simeon Weedall.

Plus, I couldn’t forget to thank our dear friend, Marivaldo dos Santos, that was the one that set this video shooting up for us! Marivaldo is also part of the super talented NYC performers, since the early days, when it all started! You guys HAVE to see him in action!

I can’t believe that Halloween is just around the corner, again! How crazy fast did this year go by, right?

We ALL know that Halloween is the best time of the year with some of the most amazing parties spread throughout the entire city, or country! People travel from all over the globe and come to New York to enjoy this special weekend and go home with endless stories to tell!

Well, like last year, we decided to share with you which will be some of the top parties in the city.

Where am I going? I’m also still not sure for one simple reason: the type of music I enjoy is totally different from the music my friends enjoy! I love psychedelic trans (minus the drugs, lol) and my friends just h-a-t-e it! Ha! The past 2 years, I went to Circo Loco, that is also listed below and loved it!

Tickets are running out and getting super expensive, so be sure to figure out where you’re going and guarantee your ticket(s)!

Oh! And besides the parties, I listed a few costume and make up stores to get you ready for the party!


McKittrick Hotel

Events Up Coming NYC Halloween Parties 2018 McKittrick Hotel

You’ve probably heard of Sleep No More, right? If not, it’s the city’s top theatrical experience inside the McKittrick Hotel, where they recreated a non-chronological show portraying the famous Macbeth, written by Shakespeare. Everyone’s face has a mask, preserving all identities and making everyone anonymous.

This is one of the top parties in Manhattan for one simple reason: these guys know how to put a party together!

As they say: “Guests are strongly encouraged to arrive dressed in expressive creations that give regard to the residences tradition of deviant witchcraft – be it a witch, sorcerer, enchanter, vampire, beast, or monster. Alternatively, you could come in dress inspired by the occult, in all black.”

Location: 530 West 27th Street

Circo Loco

Events Up Coming NYC Halloween Parties 2018 Circo Loco

Ah!! This is the party I told you in the intro that I love and I’ve been to the past two years! If you’re into electronic music – the type that makes your bones shake – then, this is certainly the place for you!

They always organize it in one of those huge Brooklyn warehouses far from everything! The organization is great, the DJ’s lineup is always fantastic with international names and the costumes are truly creative.

Party starts pretty late, but I usually arrive early because lines get crazy. But, if you’re a night owl, you’ll love it!

House of Yes

Twilight Tour no Green-Wood Cemetery

Events Up Coming NYC Halloween Parties 2018 Green Wood Cemetery

Last Halloween, I attended another party that also happened inside the renowned Green-Wood Cemetery, in Brooklyn. And, I literally loved it!

The party I went to was later at night, but this year they are doing a pre-event from 5pm – 7pm, when the sun starts setting. We all know that this is the time where cemeteries start getting fun, right? Lol!

If you are like me, you will LOVE this experience! I really thought it was unforgettable and still, you’ll be able to head to another party after it!

Oh! And just thought you’d like to know: the experience ends in a place completely off bounds to the common public: inside one of their catacombs.

Location: 500 25th Street

Blood Manor

In general, haunted houses usually corny and not really scary, but I can guarantee that after you walk inside Blook Manor, you’ll have quite a hard time going to bed at night.

This is one of the most famous haunted houses in New York and surely, the bloodiest one you’ll ever see. The production behind it all is surreal and will get your bones shaking!

Take a look at the video below and let’s see if you’ll have the courage to enter it.

Good luck!

A little bit about Natalie:

Events Up Coming Natalie Hart Sofar Sounds NYC StyleNatalie was born in Dallas Texas and her contact with music started even before being born. She was beautifully named after Natalie Cole by her father – the son of a retired Air Force pilot and music minister.

She tell us that: “My musical influences stem back to my love for the dramatique and the singular, unmistakable voices of the classic female vocalists of the 1940s.”

Belmont University in Nashville, TN was where she studied Music Business and started to refine and create her own identity. Her inspirations come from big names like Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan. Not only was she passionate about the art of singing, but songwriting quickly grew in her and her love for lyricism emerged.

“Natalie always knew her theatrical jazz-pop would find a home in New York, and she began saving up to move to the city where she knew her musicality would unfold. “Hang The Moon” took shape in her last year of school and her last year in Nashville, diving into and deconstructing youthful infatuation and playing with cinematic themes.

The album was recorded in Smoakstack Studios and mixed in LA by Greg Wells, famed producer of Adele, Katy Perry, and more top-selling artists. She left for New York with the record in hand, and has spent the last two years building a fan base in New York, London, Nashville, and more.

Natalie aims to find her voice and to preserve people’s moments through her music.”

“Hang The Moon” will be released in 2018.

Listen and purchase her current album “Natalie Hart: The EP“.

We all know that New York City is the home to some of the best stand-up comedy spots, but finding them is not necessarily easy.  The Standing Room in Long Island City – a.k.a. LIC, is one of our to-go spots for a fun night, with fantastic drinks and cool, low-key people.

There are some very well-known venues, but the behind the scenes, secret ones are surely our preference, as you know!

The Standing Room is actually the “little sister” to The Stand Comedy Club in Gramercy – that has been named by the NY Magazine, the “Best Comedy Club”.

The Standing Room is an intimate speakeasy style cocktail bar that has definitely called our attention for numerous reasons. After going there once, for a night that we weren’t really sure what to expect, we became totally obsessed with the place.

As you enter a small door (we loved it already!), you’ll find an beautiful long wooden full bar. Lights are very dim, music is pretty good, sitting area is scarce with only a few stools around the bar, but it’s actually just perfect. The bartenders are all pretty stylish and very friendly folks that’ll help you out figuring out the best drink for you.

The house is known for offering Long Island City’s premier cocktail experience, and their signature cocktails are surely worth trying! The recipes were created by the award winning Mixologists, Joji Watanabe.

One of the cocktails we always order is the “Flower” made with dry gin, lavender, elderflower and cranberry. The best? It’s served inside a super cool lightbulb (picture on image gallery)!

We’ve also tried other cocktails like the “Smoke”, made with bourbon, ancho chile, cyan and house bitters. “Truffle” is quite interesting, mixing bison grass vodka, truffle honey, muscat and grapefruit.

The list is endless, so you’ll definitely have a great time trying them all! Prices range from $11 – $13, which is pretty good too!

They don’t really serve food, except for a few bites like:

  • Cheese Board – A selection of 3 cheeses sourced from beecher’s handmade cheeses
  • Charcuterie Board – A selection of 3 cheeses sourced from beecher’s handmade cheeses accompanied by a pairing 3 artisan cured meats
  • Beef / Pork Jerky – House cured sweet pork and beef jerky
  • Steamed Cheeburger – Served on egg challah roll with vermont sharp chedder

Now! Lets talk about the Comedy Nights! To start, it’s free!

So, what to expect from their comedians? Well, they are surely some of the best up and coming stand-up comedians in Queens, so it’s practically impossible to go wrong. Their line up is always fantastic and they usually have around 4 different performances at 2 different times – 8pm and 10pm.

Even if you decide to just hang around the see the 2nd performance, you’ll definitely see the beauty of how improve can change the course of their show.

We are sure you’ll have one of the best nights, so just grab your drink and enjoy!
