1. The Bachelorette Show
Nope, you totally don’t have to be celebrating nuptials of any kind to enjoy this hysterical performance! I’m all about interactive theater, and in this spoof of romance reality shows, the audience mixes, mingles and dances it up to their favorite radio hits, spun by star Guest DJs, as the Bachelors vie for votes. (Seriously, The Bachelorette Show is like watching The Bachelorette but YOU get to decide who she ends up with, so much fun!) Taking place at the gorgeous 42West venue right in the heart of the theater district, you’ll be delighted to watch the cast compete in dance contests, ab-offs and more. And over the course of the show, they’ll slowly be eliminated until only one remains, who will walk off into the sunset with Adriana. The rest are up for grabs, ladies.
2. Spanish Tapas + Flamenco Dancing Show
Every Thursday and Saturday night, join Nai Tapas Bar for live music and spicy flamenco performances! You can sit at the bar, or request a table close to the dance floor–and if it’s your birthday, you can even get on stage and perform a number with the dancers! Don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of liquid courage in the form of their house made sangria.
3. Attend A Tribute Concert
We all had our favorite bands back in the day, and when I heard about a tribute to the fabulous George Michael and WHAM! taking place at 42West, well, I was all “wake me up before you go-go!” If Georgie isn’t your jam, a quickie Google search will fill you in on any other tribute bands you’re dying to see!
4. Indulge Your Sweet Tooth
From chocolate pizza, to chocolate fondu, to chocolate shots–Max Brenner has it all.
5. Get Your Girl Power On
Bluestockings is a volunteer run bookstore on the Lower East Side, hosting regular readings, workshops, performances, discussions and films catering to women (you can check out current events on their calendar). And ladies, their coffee is only $1, which is a steal in this city!
Wishing all you ladies a very happy Women’s Month, and do share your favorite activities to do with girlfriends below!
