Whiskey, Shopping and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, November 30, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a Whiskey Fest to a shopping event. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.


Whiskey Fest

Mmmm! It’s Brooklyn Whiskey Fest, which means it’s time to bring the whole family down to the second borough for a tasty treat. (Okay, maybe not the whole family!)

Miracle on Madison

The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is the recipient of the 32nd Annual Miracle on Madison Avenue, New York City’s most beloved philanthropic holiday shopping tradition. Head on down to Madison on Saturday for exciting shopping and more!
