If you and your boyfriend are traveling to New York City this winter, then plan ahead and get event tickets he will love. While many people think of hanging out in Central Park during the spring and summer, there are also lots of cool things to do once the weather turns cold. Below is a list of four different types of events you can get tickets for. The events are broken down by interest, so you should find something your guy will like whether he's a sports fan or a classical music fan.
For Sophisticated Guys
The best type of event for guys who are into more refined things would be the opera. New York has one of the most famous opera houses in the world (the MET). You can get tickets for a night showing if you want to be really fancy. While many people tend to dress up when they go to the opera, the afternoon shows are a bit more relaxed. At night shows, however, you get the real atmosphere with men in suits or even black ties with ladies in evening dresses.
For Guys Who are Sports Fanatics
If your guy will totally fall asleep at the opera and is more of a sports fan, then you have two great choices. You can either see a Rangers game or a Knicks game. These are both held in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden, so they are easy to get to. This is also a great pick if you're on a bit of a budget. There's a huge variety of seating options. You can get floor seats (for basketball) if you have the money to spend, but you can also get higher seats for reasonable rates.
For Guys Who Love Music
Of course, New York also has a huge amount of live music. The aforementioned Madison Square Garden hosts superstars such as Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, and Carrie Underwood. Smaller venues, such as Roseland Ballroom and Irving Plaza, have smaller acts (indie, hip-hop, rock), and of course, you can also head up to Lincoln Center to catch classical music. You can find complete listings of the live performances that will occur during your trip on many event brokers websites.
For Guys Who Love Fashion
If you're guy is super into fashion and always reading men's fashion magazines and talking about designers, then Fashion Week is the perfect event to get tickets to. It's held twice a year in New York. The first time is early in September, and the second time is in February. So if you're planning a winter visit to NYC during February, you should consider attending. It's held in tents in Bryant Park. The two of you can see designers new collections before they hit the magazines. It's really fun and one of the best ways to see high fashion live. It's also something you won't get a chance to see too often unless you also travel to Paris or Milan.Share
