Spa Week 2014

It all starts with a peaceful mind and a relaxed body, turns out this is just the week to make sure you have both of those checked off your list! Now until April 27th it’s not just Spa Week in New York City, but all over the United States. New York City spas are offering treatments starting at just $50 at some of NYC’s top spas. You can find out all the details here: http://www.spaweek.com

Fun fact: The term “spa” comes from the name of a town! There is a town in Belgium called Spa where Romans revived the ideas of medicinal bathing. Latter that year Dr. Timothy Bright started using the term as a generic reference to the practice and it just stuck!

Where to Watch the Super Bowl in NYC

We’re two days away from the Super Bowl in NYC and if you haven’t decided where you’re going to watch the game yet, we might be able to help. Here’s our quick guide to watching the Super Bowl in New York City (if you don’t have a ticket):

First you need to ask yourself this question: I’m I a Seahawks or Broncos fan? If you answer yes, here are your best options:

Seahawks

Feile – This Midtown Bar will be packed with Seahawks blue come Sunday. It’s where ‘Hawks fans meet in NYC every week during the regular season

Carlow East – Home to the NYCeahawks, Carlow East will fulfill every 12th man need you have

Broncos

Butterfield 8 – Plan on this Midtown bar being packed with orange. If you wear Broncos gear, you get half off bar snacks on Sunday

Stout – This Broncos bar is located right next to Feile, so when Peyton hoists the Lombardi Trophy, you can look out the window and watch the Seahawks fans walking home with their heads down

What’s that, you’re not a fan? That’s fine! Here are some options for people who don’t want to get run over every time there’s a score:

The Sixth Ward – For $45, you get an open bar, halftime buffet, and expect giveaways all night

Down The Hatch– $23 for 3 pitchers of beer, plus all the atomic wings you can handle. Not a bad deal.

TG Whitney’s – This is the official bar of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Committee, which is something I never thought needed an official bar, but what do I know. Anyway, you can expect big things here Sunday
