Bloody Valentine’s Day Weekend: If being scared out of your wits is your thing, why not spend Valentine’s Day in the scariest place in NYC? Blood Manor is a first class haunted house attraction comprised of approximately 5,000 square feet of themed rooms, corridors, and a labyrinth of passageways designed to maximize one’s fears. Bloody Valentine’s Weekend will be held on February 13 & 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Valentine’s Day Wine Tasting Party: If you love wine and socializing then let NYSN be your Valentine for this great night out at The World Bar, where the focus is on introducing you to some great wines and other fun people! Forget those cheesy Anti-Valentine's Day Parties around town. NYSN has teamed up with several social networking groups to bring you a fantastic wine tasting event for people who love wine and those who know nothing about it! It is a fun way to spend a Saturday evening in a classy yet casual atmosphere. The wine will be free flowing and you can fill your glass as many times as you would like if you love a particular one! The night will feature a dozen top notch wines selected by The World Bar/Madison & Vine Wine Bar wine experts for you to sample with descriptions of each; delicious hot and cold appetizers; and NYSN staff to welcome you and introduce you to others in the group. The bar will remain open for invited guests and wine tasting participants until midnight. February 14, 7:30 p.m.
