We’re back for a new round of NYC Best Weekday Bets! Each day will feature a top pick in the areas of 1. fitness (active), 2. comedy, 3. culture, 4. film, 5. food + drink, 6. free, 7. music and 8. staying in (because let’s face it, sometimes you just want to not leave your couch). Tons happening this week, and since it’s NYFW, and because there’s a free outdoor screening of The Devil Wears Prada, our GIF theme is obviously reflective of major Miranda Priestly vibes! Details:
