What’s going on the week in New York:

Winter Gala at Lincoln Center

The event will feature performances from Rachel Brown, Justin Guarini, Jennifer Holliday, Patti LaBelle, Brian McKnight, Alicia Hall Moran, and Jason Moran.

Alice Tully Hall, 1941 Broadway, New York

Fat Tuesday

It’s never too late to fly to New Orleans, but outside of that you can still celebrate Mardi Gras in New York. 

Tuesday, February 13, all day

Galentine’s Day

Is this a made-up holiday? Yes. Is it still important to celebrate? Absolutely. Because it’s always a good time to pay homage to Parks and Recreation‘s Leslie Knope—and to honor the importance of female friendships. So grab your best gal pals and enjoy a night out in the city

February 13, all day

Valentine’s Day

We hope you didn’t really need our social calendar to remember that today is Valentine’s Day. And if you did—good luck!

Wednesday, February 14, all day

Chinese New Year

The Year of the Dog kicks off this week, with Lunar New Year celebrations held throughout the city. Among the biggest celebrations will be the annual parade in Chinatown.
