We’re halfway through our first-month journey of the year and I still can’t believe how fast time passes! Anyway, the best three weeks you can ask for with great deals being offered around New York City is here! If you’re planning to visit around this time of the year, it’s not too late to start planning. NYC Outing Week is a program that aligns with Restaurant Week, Broadway Week, and Must-See Week. A great program to participate in, giving you the opportunity to dine at some restaurants that are usually pretty pricey. Broadway lovers can watch their favorite shows at a lower price for three weeks and Must-See Week which brings you around the city.
From January 21 to Feb 8, all you foodies, this will be the best three weeks to go round to the city and try various cuisines. Restaurants which on usual days serve you a plate of appetizer which costs more than your lunch, you should take this opportunity!
Lunch for $26 (appetizer and main) and dinner for $42 (appetizer, main, dessert) with a prix fixe menu for three weeks! I’ve been to a couple of restaurants during last year’s Restaurant Week and they didn’t disappoint. Please don’t ask which ones I’ve been to, I hate to say this but I don’t remember.
Right now, I have two restaurants on my list – The Palm Tribeca and The Tuck Room. Been tied up with work lately and haven’t done much research on which restaurants that I should try, definitely will be looking for more!
Yes, I love Broadway. So so much. This 2-for-1 deal is perfect for someone like me. Someone who bought tickets to see Waitress for the 3rd time. Yes, that’s how much I love it. Though I purchased the tickets for the show not during Broadway Week, it’s because Sara Bareilles is performing (until Feb 3).
Back to Broadway week.
I never knew how much I’d love Broadway until I moved to NYC. Since the ticket prices can get a little hefty (depending on the seats you choose, of course), this deal is perfect. You can check out the shows participating in Broadway Week here, seems like a few of them are already sold out and when I was looking for tickets, most of the shows I wanted to watch have very few seats available.
So I’m here to tell you to give Waitress a shot if you haven’t watched it. Unfortunately, it’ll be participating only from Feb 4 to 10 as Sara Bareilles is currently performing.
My Broadway show choices for this Broadway Week
- The Book of Mormon
- The Band’s Visit
I’ve already gotten the tickets for these two shows and I’m so excited about it!
- Waitress, the Musical: Sara Bareilles, Katharine McPhee, Jordin Sparks
- Winter Restaurant Week and Broadway Week
Are you into Broadway? Which are your favorite shows?
And finally, whether you’re a tourist or a local, I’m sure there is somewhere you’ve been wanting to visit around NYC. I love being a tourist in my own city (like what I did during Christmas) so I’m going to give this a try, depending on the weather because most of the time I just want to stay in bed when it’s freezing outside.
One of the tours that I’ve always wanted to join is the On Location Tours. Sex and The City, Gossip Girl, Friends and so many more shows which are shot in NYC that we can visit! Oh, and Netflix’s YOU was also shot in NYC though I believe it won’t be part of the tour.
The only thing holding me back from getting this $24.50 ticket is that I’d have to risk my poor fingers and face being out in the cold. I’ll also be all wrapped up like a penguin when taking photos. I have some time to reconsider but if you’re visiting, you can definitely consider this!
It’s great that the city has the NYC Outing Week program which consists of Restaurant Week, Broadway Week, and Must-See Week. Not only locals but tourists are able to participate in it, discovering more about this great city. Where in New York City would like to do or visit?Tags: broadway, food, new york city, winter
Great post! I’d love to go to a broadway show in NYC, seems so amazing! Here in NC, we have the DPAC theater, and I’ve seen a few there. Couldn’t get tickets to Waitress when it came here though. NYC has so much to offer, can’t wait to read about more of your adventures!
BROADWAY WEEK?!?! That sounds AMAZING!!!!
I’d love to do that – so jealous!
Yess! 2-for-1 tickets is such a good deal!

I think I would like to visit Broadway
Broadway shows are beautiful. I’ve watched Wicked in Manchester and it’s so amazing! I believe there are great shows in London too (:
