You can finally bust out the Michael Bublé Christmas tunes without judgment: The holidays have arrived in New York City. Kick-start your seasonal shopping (and eating) with these eight weekend events.
Urbanspace's world-famous market is back with even more vendors packed into its crowded aisles this year. Expect artisanal crafts, enough food provisions to stock your pantry until next Christmas and, new this year, an entire section dedicated to Brooklyn artisans.
Once you've decided it's time to go inside and thaw your fingers, make your way to Grand Central's holiday marketplace, where you'll find handmade gifts worthy enough even for your dad who claims he has everything.
You didn't end up booking that impulse trip to Scandinavia, but a mug of glogg in one hand and a Danish waffle in the other are all you need to pretend like you're in northern Europe.

Thursday morning isn't exactly the best time to realize you're severely under-equipped to host Thanksgiving. Swing by Bowery Restaurant Group's garage sale, where it's selling everything from back-of-house restaurant supplies to dinnerware so stylish you'll want to host Christmas, too.
It takes a special person to want to down a pint of ice cream as fast as possible (in November, no less). But if you're up for the challenge, you'll have to finish in under two minutes and 20 seconds at least: That's how long it took last year's winner, Patrick Garcia, to finish his pint.
Our winter igloos are back! This frigid weather can't stop us from having a good time! Come on up and enjoy one of New York City's finest views. We also have our Signature Red Robes available for you too! So grab one of our "Hot Fireball Cider" or our "Godiva Peppermint Hot Chocolate" and enjoy the view from within one of our several Winter Igloos (they have heaters too). The Indoor Penthouse is open as well and have enlarged windows with the same view of NYC Skyline. �Photo Credit to @nvshutter #230FifthRooftop #RooftopBar #NYCRooftopBar #RooftopView #NYCSkyline #Citylife #NYC #FlatironDistrict #PartyWithFriends #Cocktails #RooftopCocktail #NYCBar #HappyHour #EmpireStateBuilding #Skyscrapers #Nightlife #Weekend #CityLights #NightLights #TimeOutNewYork #FallDrinks #Fall2017 #FallSky #Igloos #Winter #NYCWinter
You just can't keep a New Yorker away from a rooftop bar, no matter what time of year it is. To celebrate the return of its cozy outdoor igloos, this popular NoMad lounge is offering two-for-one drinks specials.
This all-you-can-drink party brings the city's best bartenders and mixologists together for a night of festive cocktails. VIP ticket holders get early access, and a portion of proceeds will go toward the Children's Aid Society.
