    Tour Brooklyn by Foot

    This summer has been a scorcher here in New York, but as summer starts to fade into fall, temperatures will cool, making the coming months perfect for a walking tour of Brooklyn. Here are a few of our favorite places to explore....

    Brooklyn Heights Tour

    Recognized by Travel + Leisure as one of our nation’s 10 most beautiful neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights is packed with historical sites. On this tour, you’ll see General Washington’s headquarters, Fulton Ferry District, the townhouse where Truman Capote composed his charming Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and much more.

    Bushwick Graffiti and Street Art Tour

    If you have an artistic streak, then this tour is for you. Bushwick abounds with artist studios and galleries, but the real draw is all the gritty industrial architecture, which attracts graffiti artists from all across the city and the world.

    Williamsburg Walking Tour

    This hipster haven is home to many thriving ethnic communities: Puerto Rican, Polish, Italian, Dominican, and Hasidic. Your tour will take you to such notable spots as the Williamsburg Bridge, the Brooklyn Bowl, and the Russian Orthodox Church (of Seinfeld fame).

    For more information on these and other walking tours, visit the Free Tours By Foot official website.

    MOFAD Is the Ultimate Foodie Experience in NYC

    Calling all foodies! If you’re visiting New York, you already know you are in the food capital of the world, but have you ever wanted to dive deeper than just the surface level experience of enjoying food?...

    Well, now you can with MOFAD, or the Museum of Food and Drink in Brooklyn. MOFAD is a new way to showcase food and to help the community learn about different cuisines, where they are from, and how they are made. Food is something that connects all of us — when we are eating we are sharing — whether that be a story or a forkful, it is an activity that brings us together. Every few months the museum will be featuring a different culture in food and drinks — as the CHOW exhibit comes to a close, we can look forward to the African/American: Making the Nation’s Table exhibit to make its entrance this April.

    Wine and dine yourself in the heart of Brooklyn. A bit of an unlikely place to experience the luxury of Wine Country, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Buy your tickets for this year's Brooklyn Wine Fest on February 8th, taking place in the Brooklyn Expo Center....

    Taste delicious wines from all around the world and pair them with the incredible food vendors that will be stationed throughout the Expo Center.

    Get Boozy on America’s Day of Thanks

    Some people love the traditions of Thanksgiving—cooking all morning, gathering family around a table, and feasting until they put themselves in a food coma in front of the TV....

    However, for some, they prefer a whole different routine on this day of thankfulness. If you fall into the category of the latter, you may prefer to know which cool NYC bars will be open this year on Thanksgiving. The Tillary’s got you covered! 

    This Thanksgiving holiday, we recommend these hot bars: BillyMark’s West for midwestern comfort and some of the cheapest drinks in the city; Doc Holliday’s for that neighborhood-bar vibe and no-frills drinks; or J. J. Kinahan’s for an Irish-American pub serving up hearty classics. 

    Be thankful in whatever way suits you this Thanksgiving!

    Surprise Mom will A Mother’s Day Brunch

    Moms don’t usually get much of a break. In fact, it's well-known that their superpower is taking care of everyone else, while seemingly never needing to focus on themselves. That’s why, on one of the few days a year that she’s able to take a break, treat Mom to an experience she’ll really enjoy: brunch!...

    NYC practically invented the brunch scene, boasting an endless array of restaurants offering top-notch mimosas, stunning city views, and creative menus fusing breakfast and lunch in ever-evolving ways. Some of our top picks for brunch on Mother’s Day include:

    Estela, a cozy spot from Mom's that love Mediterranean-inspired dishes; Misi, a pasta bar for carb-lovers that also cranks out fantastic veggie side dishes; and Olmsted, bringing farm-to-table dining to new heights with its on-site mini-farm. 

    Choose from any of these spots (and many more) to spoil Mom with indulgent dining and drinks this Mother's Day. For bonus points, take Mom to a Broadway show while you’re in town!

    Explore the Coolest Borough of NYC

    New York City comes alive during the spring when the freezing temperatures of winter have seized and mild temperatures cause plant life to bloom across the city. There is no better time of year to explore the area on foot....

    We recommend visiting one of the city’s iconic parks, Central Park or Battery Park, and trekking to the top of the nearby Brooklyn Bridge. Visit one of Soho’s many rooftop bars for a chic dining experience or an inspired craft cocktail.

    If you're here towards the end of April, consider snagging a ticket to the Tribeca Film Festival, an international festival that showcases films, art, and cultural events in Lower Manhattan. Tickets are on sale during the end of March into the beginning of April. Visit the event site here for full details and tickets.

    Enjoy a Traditional Celebration of Saint Patrick

    St. Patrick’s Day is notorious for loud drunks, tacky green beer, and a lot of grown men dressed as Leprechauns. It’s something New York is very proud to take part in and for good reason! Saint Patrick was not just the patron of the Irish, but of a historic New York that became home for so many Irish immigrants....

    It's not surprising that besides modern celebrations, the city also supports many traditional ones that educate and commemorate Saint Patrick. One such opportunity is the brand new Catacombs by Candlelight Tour that takes you under the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. The historical and—okay, we’ll admit kind of scary—tour is a rare glimpse into the one and only catacombs that run beneath Manhattan. There’s no better way to experience the roots that gave rise to New York and its Irish Heritage.

    Justin Timberlake Comes to Madison Square Garden

    Guess who’s bringing sexy back? Our Gen X and Millennial guests, rejoice! Justin Timberlake, The Boy-Band-Pop Prince, is bringing his sultry falsetto and slick moves to Madison Square Garden on January 24th as part of his The Man of the Woods Tour....

    He’s come a long way since his yellow-haired days as a member of NSYNC but has only grown in his ability to deliver an unforgettable performance. Snag your ticket before all the good ones are gone!

    The show starts at 8:00 p.m. so we recommend dinner and drinks beforehand. For something nearby, we recommend Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, located right across the street from Madison Square Garden. One bite of their pulled pork and you’ll swear you’ve been transported to the South. Jay T happens to be from Tennessee so maybe he’ll be there too for a little taste of home.
