Le Nuit en Rosé

Through Saturday, May 20th, aboard a yacht with celebrity chefs, world-class rosé wines and Hudson River views. Bad news is that General Admission tickets are dunzo. But, if you choose to splurge, you’re in luck because VIP tickets are still available for purchase. For $195 per person, part-take in the See The World Through Rosé Passport tasting experience, featuring seven dishes by Chef Chris Santos from Vandal perfectly paired with seven rosé wines by Terlato Wines. It’s over four hours of boozing, too. VIP get priority boarding and early entry (one hour prior to GA ticket holders). In?

Friday, May 19th – Women x Women Art Fair

Together, they will launch a free female-focused art activation on the Lower East Side from May 19th until June 2nd. Eleven female artists from across the globe (including Miranda July, Maria Herreros and Shawna X) have each created an original piece depicting their qualms with women’s portrayal in art and reaction to the male gaze. The works will be displayed publicly in eleven unique locations across Manhattan’s Lower East Side – from Hotel Chantelle and Essex Street Market to Hester Street Fair.
