1/24-1/26…The Weekender

Looking for something local to do this weekend? If you’re staying in NYC, there’s plenty of events for you to head over to. Make the most out of your weekend with these exciting plans.

Friday 1/24
Broadway Week at Desmond’s Steakhouse
It’s Broadway Week’s two-for-one ticket value proposition where you can get two tickets for a Broadway show for the price of one. In honor of this special deal, Desmond’s Steakhouse is providing diners with an applause worthy offer– two- for- one desserts with dinner, accompanied with a complimentary glass of Prosecco for each diner. It doesn’t stop there! Desmond’s will also be offering six hours of free parking after 5PM at the lot next door on W. 38th St, situated near Times Square, the heart of the Theatre District. This special offer will run nightly until February 6th, and doesn’t require you presenting your tickets to receive it.
