8coupons Haps – November 2013
LETS TALK IT OUT
November (ongoing) Something rich has taken root on Orchard Street down on the Lower East Side. The Tenement Museum hosts Tenement Talks, an evening series of lectures, readings, panel discussions, films and other programs that provide historical and contemporary perspectives on New York City’s rich culture. Only a handful events are FREE enabling the savvy history buff an opportunity to feast on a variety of revealing experiences that have shaped the Lower East Side.
FREE YOGA FOR VETERANS AND THEIR PEEPS
November (Ongoing) If you’re a veteran, veteran family member, or a veteran service provider, then experience the benefits of yoga to relieve stress, recover from trauma, focus the mind, and heal the body…all for free. Founded by a former marine, Vets NYC started in July 2008 as a service for veterans in the New York City area. Taught by veterans, the program is designed specifically for veterans dealing with injuries or trauma. Every veteran is welcome, regardless of age, era or experience. Classes are small enough to give attention to individual students who may be dealing with specific injuries, challenges or disabilities. No prior experience with yoga is necessary. Mats, props and lockers are provided. Please bring comfortable clothing and avoid eating at least one hour before class.
FREE PIZZA EVERYDAY!
November (Ongoing). If you’re into the joys of pizza, then look no further than The Crocodile Lounge (East 14th St b/t 1st and 2nd Aves) where they have FREE PIZZA every day. But, that’s not all, they also offer FREE OMELETTES on Sundays, plus FREE SHOTS on Wednesday, and a bevy of game nights where winning patrons can win hearty bar tabs.
November (Ongoing/Saturdays) Hosted by FIDO, a nonprofit organization founded in the interest of dogs and their owners, comes Coffee Bark. Coffee Bark stands as a shining example of all that is great about off-leash doggie recreation in City parks. From 7 – 9am, usually on the first Saturday of every month, hundreds of dogs and their people descend on Prospect Park’s Long Meadow in Brooklyn where they stop by for free coffee & pastries, chat about doggie related concerns, get free dog biscuits for their pooch and learn more about FIDO’s commitment to man’s best friend.
FREE GIN TASTING
November 14 (Thursday) Shut up and call me…er…Gin? Chelsea Wine Vault (9th Ave & 16th St – inside Chelsea Market) is hosting a free Hendrick’s gin tasting. A bartender from The Tippler will be there making cocktails show casing Hendricks at this casual tasting where there’s no need to RSVP and no seating. This free tasting takes place from 4 – 7pm so you can drop in whenever you like. Go to their website to view other great tasting haps.
THE BIG BALLOON BLOW UP!
November 27 (Wednesday) An alternative to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is watching the big balloon blow up the night before the big Parade. This can be as much fun as the Parade itself and many of us have stood outside with Hot Chocolate (or, um, something stronger) and watched the Parade balloons take shape. Free to all locals and tourists alike; the set up takes place on either side of the American Museum of Natural History, on 77th and 81st Sts between CPW and Columbus from 3-10 pm on Wednesday, November 27th.
LIBRARY STATE OF MIND
November (Ongoing) Did you know that any person who lives, works, attends school or pays property taxes in New York State is eligible to receive a New York Public Library card free of charge? What’s the benefit of having a library card? Having a library card is your key to the resources and services of all New York Public Library locations in the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island. Along with borrowing library materials, your card allows you to reserve a computer, download digital media, search hundreds of electronic databases, and more. Knowing is really half the battle!
