NYC LIFE: Celebrating the Holidays, New York City Style
This adorable owl found in the Rockefeller Christmas tree, was just what we needed to lift our spirits. There’s a lot of holiday magic to be found this year, and without tourists, it’s a great time to be a tourist in your own city. And there are all kinds of activities for dog owners this weekend. Valerie Smaldone has suggestions for keeping Thanksgiving festive. And make sure to listen to her radio show Sunday at 2 PM, Bagels and Broadway, for her interview with Carol Ostrow, author of “Poems from My Pandemic Pen.” And join us with Carol and three other poets live on Facebook tomorrow at 5 PM. And our Broadway Babe and some great entertainment picks today.
Join us Sunday at 5 PM on Face Live.

Nov 20-22. Special Activities for You and Your Dog
In honor of the launch of the new series The Pack, Amazon Prime Video has created the ultimate celebration for dogs everywhere – and their humans too. To celebrate the premiere of “The Pack,” Amazon Prime Video created the ultimate weekend for dogs and their owners in New York City.
Starting on Friday, Nov. 20, local New York City businesses will offer giveaways, discounted or free services, surprise pup-grades, and gifts with purchase throughout Packed Weekend. Dog owners are invited to bring their pets to experience pampering, exciting activities, and a way to help support local businesses. The weekend will run through Sunday, Nov. 22.
And there’s a Pack Walk Challenge, brought to you by Under Armour Connected Fitness. It’s a global, virtual dog walk benefiting some incredible causes and, the best part is, you can participate from wherever you are located. Plus, eligible participants have the chance to win amazing prizes when they complete the Challenge! Learn more at amNewYork.

Holiday Lights and More at the Empire State Building
If you have not visited the Empire State Building’s Observatory in a while, this would be a good year to that. And heat lamps have been installed throughout the open air, 360 deck. In addition to the holiday decorations and the tower light show, ESB’s seasonal Fifth Avenue window display, visible only to ESB tenants and ESB Observatory visitors on their exit from the Observatory, features 3D LEGO® models of the Star Wars construction sets. A cool thing to do with the kids this year. Get the details.
