What To Do In NYC This Weekend January 19 To 21

Including a hot chocolate fest and a celebration of all things swine

Not all heroes wear capes, but they do wear pink hats. After you've taken part in one of the city's biggest events, make room in your schedule for these other happenings around the city, including an underground supper club you can actually get into and a festival dedicated to pork. 

All Weekend

Valrhona Hot Chocolate Festival

Back for its third year, this event brings together 10 of NYC's best bakers and chocolatiers (including Dominique Ansel) in celebration of your favorite winter beverage.

Friday, January 19

Farmhouse Family Meal

Head to intimate Brooklyn restaurant the Tuscan Gun, where you'll see what it would have been like if you moved to Italy. Chef Gabriele Corcos is breaking out all the winter comfort food classics of his Italian dinner table: hearty lentil soup, rigatoni with sausage and kale, and panna cotta scented with rosemary and orange.
