NYC LIFE: February Fun, Makeup Fun, Theater District Dining, Museums
We had such a fun pre-Valentine’s celebration with some of our NYC Insider Club members and their friends at NARS Cosmetics. Valerie Smaldone gives thumbs up to Patrick’s – a new restaurant in the theatre district. Miriam Silverberg has the scoop on new exhibits at the Morgan Library and Museum, one of our favs. Make sure to get your tickets to “Defeat the Streets”, a variety show by NYC artists to help the homeless. And don’t forget the Chinese New Year Parade this weekend in Chinatown. And check out a few highlights, like the Orchid show, of more fun things to do this month.

Every year there is a spectacular display of orchids at the New York Botanical Garden and this year’s show is a dazzling tribute to the “City in a Garden” soars to new heights with thousands of orchids climbing to the sky.
Singapore—where the national flower is an orchid—is the inspiration for the 17th annual Orchid Show. Elevate your interest in these storied flowers that are an integral part of the island’s culture and landscape. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibition pays homage to the sites’ iconic Supertrees—dramatic vertical habitats, and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.
