Saturday has arrived and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. Thankfully, there are plenty of things to do in the City today, including a fresh look at the Knicks and a Mardi Gras-themed party. So get out there and have a fun time today, because come Tuesday, snow is back in the forecast.
American Songbook: Leslie Uggams: “Uptown Downtown” – 10:30pm - Lincoln Center: Check out this inspiring presentation from Leslie Uggams, a Tony Award winning performer. She is a magnificent black voice with a stunning Broadway background, and her presence on the stage will captivate even the youngest of audiences.
New York Knicks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder – 7:30pm
Madison Square Garden: Come watch the newly realigned New York Knicks get their brains knocked in by Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Okay, so that’s not exactly the best promo for the New York Knicks, but at least if you show up, you might get to see Kevin Durant do something special on the court. That’s the great thing about the NBA; even when your team sucks, you still get to see 25-29 other superstars come to your arena every year.
Sexy Saturdays – 11pm
Retreat (27 West 17th Street): When it comes to clubbing and throwing parties in New York City there is a very simple rule to follow: K.I.S.S! Keep It Simple Stupid! Retreat is definitely doing that by offering no cover before midnight, a trendy dress code, and nothing but hip-hop, R&B and reggae music. After all that, what else do you need?
Socialite Saturdays – 10pm
D’Or (204 West 55th Street): D’Or, the popular midtown club, is going social this Saturday, and I’m not talking about Facebook and Twitter. Of course, there will be lots of interaction going on, especially since ladies are free until midnight on the Rob Diesel VIP list. And to help lubricate even more social interactivity, there is an open bar from 10pm to 11pm. So stuff your blackberries in your purse, and leave your tweetdecks alone for the night, because Socialite Saturday at D’Or is the only thing you need to stay in the loop this weekend.
Saturdays with Casbah – 11pm
Taj Mahal (1000 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ): Fire up your ride or rent out a limo bus, either way, Atlantic City is the place to be this weekend. Thousands are set to embark upon Taj Mahal this Saturday as DJ Jordan Williams takes the club over with his renown mash-ups and mixes on the 1’s and 2’s. Do come dressed correct, because you don’t get into a Donald Trump building without looking edgy and sexy—hair pieces are optional.
Circus Saturdays – 10pm
Webster Hall (125 E. 11th Street): This isn’t your older sister’s Webster Hall anymore! The newly renovated Webster Hall is for the clowns now…literally. With circus performers taking over a portion of the night’s activities in the grand ballroom, you’re sure to see something you won’t find at any other venue on your average Saturday night. Of course, if you’re just in it for the music, the men, the women and the alcohol, the lower floor room will take you away from the madness and allow you party the way you’re accustomed to at Webster Hall—with another kind of reckless abandonment.
Mardi Gras Party – 10pm
Club Roam (5 East 19th Street): Get here early or else the long line will surely leave you standing out in the cold. You don’t want to stand out in the cold when you’re half naked in a Mardi Gras outfit wearing a mask. And yes, festive attire is very welcomed at this party, because that’s what you do at Mardi Gras, ain’t it? Ladies are free before 11pm. Gentlemen, sorry, but you’re going to have to probably put up $20 to see ladies in Mardi Gras attire.
