Upright Citizens Brigade & More Among South Street Seaport's Valentine's Weekend Programming
The South Street Seaport is celebrating Valentine's Day with four nights of exciting activities, perfect for the first date, Golden Anniversary or any couple in-between.
Embrace the cold weather, and your sweetheart, at the Seaport's new FRONT/ROW CUBE, a heated cube-shaped venue open daily from 2:00pm-12:00midnight, housing lounge-style seating where visitors can enjoy a daily food and drink menu and wait staff service. Also serving as a temporary entertainment venue, FRONT/ROW CUBE is home to FRONT/ROW STAGE, where, on Thursday, February 13, the renowned Upright Citizens Brigade will present Shuffle at the Seaport. The legendary improv troupe will perform a free show at 7pm, highlighting the humor of love. (RSVP required, 21+).
On Friday, February 14, couples can get into the groove with Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra, who will take to the FRONT/ROW STAGE at 7pm. The 11-piece Latin band adds some spice to indie-rock favorites, giving songs from artists including TV On The Radio, Peter Bjorn & John, Spoon, Arcade Fire and more a distinctively salsa-twist. Salsa dance lessons will also be provided by Joey Corsica, making for an unforgettable Valentine's Day night (RSVP required, 21+).
Couples looking to extend their Valentine's Day fun into the weekend can check out the new SEE/CHANGE outdoor ice skating rink, which has quickly become one of the top skating destinations in New York City. Open daily through March 2014, the SEE/CHANGE outdoor ice skating rink is complete with a Seaport Skate Shop where skaters can warm up with delicious food and beverages.
