Discount B’Way Tix and Free Things to Do! December NYC 2016

Discount B’Way Tix and Free Things to Do!  December NYC 2016

New York’s newest place for cheap Broadway tickets isn’t a place at all.  In fact, you’re probably holding it right now—or at least it’s within easy reach!  That’s right, it’s your cell phone.  The app TodayTix has picked up where TDF left off.  No one wants to stand in long lines in the middle of Times Square, especially when temperatures go south and the snow starts to fall.  Instead, the younger generation downloads the TodayTix app for free!   It lists cheap tickets available that day (hence the term “TODAY” Tix), and on certain shows, for performances in the near future.   TodayTix also offers lottery options for a selection of other productions.   (Note:  only one or two lottery tickets to each show might be available, compared to the hundreds of people who may have entered.  So if you are desperate to see a certain show, you might want to make plans other than the lottery.)

As of Thanksgiving week in New York City,  the Rockette Christmas Spectacular had tickets on sale for $39, and Cirque du Soleil’s  Paramour was on sale for $55, along with a $35 lottery option.  TodayTix subscribers could enter the lottery to see Sutton Foster in Sweet Charity for $35.  Chicago and Cats were listed at $50 and $59, respectively.  Tickets could be purchased for all of these shows throughout the week.  Many, many more shows were available:  School of Rock, Matilda, Fiddler on the Roof, The Cherry Orchard, Kinky Boots, and more.  Some off-Broadway companies are on there as well, such as the dance company Pilobolus, Othello:  the Remix, Sleep No More, and the Keen Company’s Tick, Tick… Boom!

So next time you come to New York, do what the locals do!  Download TodayTix for free, purchase a ticket, and then meet a TodayTix concierge at the theatre.  He or she will be clearly identifiable.  You provide ID, they hand you a ticket, and you go straight to your seat.  It couldn’t be easier!  Don’t pay through the nose for a Broadway show.  And no more standing in line for hours to pay cash at the TDF booth!

Visiting New York This September

September 9th, 2015

Packing for a trip away, especially for a fashion mecca such as New York City can be a challenge. September has arrived, Fashion Week has literally begun yet Fall is not quite in full swing. Use the final few summer days – perhaps even weeks – to rock an array of pastel and nude looks before the new season well and truly kicks in. When choosing what to wear for a September in New York at any age, you have the opportunity to keep it light and bright.

Here at Shop Gotham we recommend packing a lightweight cream sweater which you can pair with white skinnies and beige flats. For smooth day-to-evening transition, add a nude leather jacket. Make the most of accessorising with a large black tote for days out and we cannot help but love a dark burgundy/vamp lip for the right amount of color. The best thing about keeping it neutral is that you can pack a few extra dark items again for the perfect day-to-evening looks. See our moodboard inspiration courtesy of Polyvore below:

 

Black Friday: What to Pack

November 24th, 2014


Coming to the city this weekend? Trying to plan your outfits but don’t know where to begin? We agree, the weather has been a bit nutty, but by Wednesday temperatures will drop again, drastically, so plan to dress warm! Snow showers are expected for Thanksgiving Day, but if you’ve ever visited New York during winter time, you know the snow never sticks!

You might as well skip the snow boots this weekend and save the room in your suitcase.


Dress in style for your visit to NYC for Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday. Oversized bathrobe inspired wool jackets, chunky knits, everything GREY, over the knee boots, a wide brim fedora, retro shades..the list goes on and on. These key pieces are in right now and if you can incorporate one or 2 of them into your outfits you will surely fit the part of chic New Yorker this weekend!
