6 Insta-Worthy Events In NYC This Month

Let’s be honest, March is kind of a basic month. It’s not quite as synonymous with wintry death as February, but spring is still too far away to think about leaving your apartment on a regular basis. That being said, it’s important to maintain the illusion of a rich and full social life while leaving your couch as little as possible. So, here are a few super Instagrammable events in NYC this March that should give you enough footage to make it to June. You’re so welcome.

The Orchid Show

Normally, I suggest avoiding nature at all costs (all it does is ruin your shoes!). But in this case, it’s an indoor flower display with alcohol and a DJ (for the evening show, anyway). Yes, please! The Orchid Show runs February 15 through April 19, and this year’s theme is Kaleidoscope, designed by renowned florist Jeff Leatham. Orchids are the perfect bougie flower to pose with and demonstrate to the world that you are a creature of luxury. Like when Kardashians pose with their new cars, but something you can afford. You have to get tickets in advance, so get on it now.

The Armory Show

The Armory Show is an art fair that takes place on Piers 90 & 94. Unlike many other art fairs and most things that happen on piers, The Armory Show is a chic, fun event featuring art from leading international galleries. It’s a highly anticipated annual NYC event, and while celebs are more likely to attend the March 4 VIP Event, you can plan your visit for one of the four days it’s open to the public. With all the exhibitions they’ve gathered together, there’s guaranteed to be enough Insta-background material for weeks worth of deep, musing, art-loving posts.

Holi In The City

Holi In The City is every Instagrammer’s dream. The Indian Festival of Colors is a full day and night long party (so pace yourself) which is taking place the every Saturday in March at Stage48. Buy your tickets here, and make sure to wear white clothes that you don’t mind ruining so you can make the most of when they cover you in various colorful powders.

Edge Observation Deck Opening

I’m still very unsure as to how I feel about The Vessel and Hudson Yards, but that might change after the Edge Observation Deck has its Grand Opening on March 11th, a year after the unveiling of everything else. The Edge has 360 degree views of New York, so you will definitely leave with a pic you love, or at least a really good insta story. There are a few different ticket packages, but one of them includes a glass of champagne, so you know where I’ll be.

Rosé Wine Mansion: Immersed In Wonderland

Rosé Mansion is presenting Immersed in Wonderland starting on March 13th. It’s basically an interactive Alice In Wonderland exhibit, and from the website, it looks like you are actually going to be in Wonderland. Buy your tickets in advance here. It’s a fun time as long as you go in with realistic expectations—it’s literally located in the Manhattan Mall, so the experience is about as high-end as that implies—and you have to be shameless about being there strictly for Instagram. Also, don’t expect to get drunk there (unless you pay for more rosé at the end) because they give you like one-ounce shots of wine in each room. However, with multiple rooms, you’ll have multiple thirst traps to space out over the next 6 months.

The Gold Gala

On March 14th, it’s the ninth annual Gold Gala: An Evening for St. Jude: a full-on A-list gala at the Bowery Hotel. Tickets start at $175, but all proceeds go toward ensuring that St. Jude’s can continue to provide treatment and care to children in need—and that the family won’t receive a bill after. Honestly, have you spent $175 on anything half as worthwhile in the past six months? Also, the ticket price goes toward free cocktails, food, and access to a fabulous party, complete with a photo booth for you to black out in commemorate the night.

So, while we’re waiting for this cold weather to finally leave and rooftop season to return, these are the six events you’ll want to hit up. The rest of the time, you can find me on my couch (and please bring pizza!).
