Of course, as with any bridal party, getting naughty is par for the course. In New York, that can be as outlandish as you can fully imagine, but for a hilariously good time mixed in with some good old fashioned male nudity that Time Out New York hails a “Comedic Brilliance,” be sure to check out Puppetry of the Penis. Although this show defies description, suffice it to say that the 45-minute show basically recreates the Australian Art of Genital Origami. It’s shockingly funny and strangely un-sexual as naked men in sneakers can be. If you are unlucky enough to encounter the group away from NYC on tour, you can always book a private party at your hotel. Prices vary.
For an equally glamorous and delicious dining experience, the newly opened Robert at MAD (Museum of Art and Design) sits on the ninth floor of its building that overlooks Central Park and Columbus Circle. Named after celeb event planner Robert Isabell, a key player in the design of this stunning space, the restaurant’s unique style compliments the museum’s worldly collection. Take in the award-winning interiors with seating by iconic Vladimir Kagan, lighting by Johanna Grawunder and video art by Jennifer Steinkamp, or just gaze at the bustling life below as you dine on artistic and inspired cuisine by Chef Brady Duhame, formerly of Union Prime and Bouley. Chef Duhame has created a menu of Mediterranean-meets-American food with dishes as unique as Chicken Cooked Under a Brick, Swiss Chard and Sheep’s Milk Ricotta Tortellini and Olive Oil Poached Halibut. Enjoy the elegant cocktails such as the crisp Isabel with Prosecco and Elderflower Liqueur or the Marseilles Mule, Grey Goose with Ginger Beer. Save room for their signature Cinnamon Dusted Ricotta Fritters with Salted Caramel Dipping Sauce for dessert. Every Wednesday through Saturday, Robert presents a live pianist from 8pm-11pm. Very chic.
