LifeLabs NY - $10 Off Discount!

Some life lessons are hard enough to why not take a few notes from experts in their field on real life! 

LifeLabs NY is a neat organization that offers some really interesting courses (the science of Cool, Conflict Resolution, Smells, etc), two of which we are planning to go to.  Plus, they were awesome enough to give us a $10 off discount for the classes below (enter in code NYCOLOR). 

Sign up today - I'm told classes are already almost half sold out!

NYChar Adventure: Sat 2/5 Ice Skating in LIC!

Let's go ice skating!

I recently came across a fun group called RANDOM EVENTS, and they have some neat events that I look forward to going to!  Here's one that's close to home...well, used to be close to home, since I recently moved from LIC, but this is the perfect excuse to go back for a visit!  Besides, I didn't go ice skating this winter season yet, so this checks off that box too: ).


730p: A few quick stops on the 7 train will get you to City Ice Pavilion (47-32 32nd Place), NYC's only rooftop skating rink, and for only $8 includes - free skate rentals, lessons, and approx 3 hrs of skating!

SIGN UP: I RSVP'ed for 4, so the first 3 people who respond can come with me (!  Otherwise - to get the discount, go to the link below to sign up for the group, and then you're all set. 

More details here:
Random Events: ICE SKATING, Free skate rentals, Free lessons, extended time for ONLY $8!!!!

I have a few more events in mind to plan, so get excited!  See you soon: )
