*Finally* have my Tartuffe: Broadway Theater Review done. Good show... was very funny... except right before intermission ended, as the lights went down, some older couple decided the seats we were sitting in were theirs (wasn't true.) Ahh well.

For anyone not familiar, First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum of Art happen the first Saturday of every month and offer an opportunity to see the museum for free and even enjoy a drink while you're there (though that will cost you).

Ahhh, Groundhog Day in New York City. I didn't realize that NYC had it's own groundhogs (& out in Queens, they even use prairie dogs instead of groundhogs to try and predict the end of winter).

Newest restaurant review added to the site forLe Madri. Special thanks go out to guest writer Judith DeCosta.

Ice Skate at Rockefeller Center for just $5 for two people. (I don't think it includes rentals, but a good deal if you've been dying to skate there.) Other ice skating options are available here.

Although this exhibit has been around for a few months, I'm hoping to see it soon and thought I'd share it with you. New York Eats Out is at the New York Public Library (FREE!) and it's all about restaurants and dining in New York City.

From Frommers, a great article calledHow We Can Save You Money. Although a lot of their tips are related to airfares & hotels, there are also great ideas for discount tickets, events, dining, etc.

Just gathered some interesting information about Chinese Lunar New Year in New York. I've never been to the parade or any of the celebrations before, but I'm definately going this year.

Just updated myNew York City Restaurant Week information for January 2003 Restaurant Week which is from January 27 - 31, 2003. I've made reservations at Bolo and I'm *trying* to get reservations at Nobu... though the phone is busy :( Make your calls soon to ensure you can enjoy restaurant week this time.
