Март, – значит весна, хоть зимы в этом году так и не случилось, но все равно приятно, что впереди больше солнца, больше света, больше зелени. Что-что, а зелень в марте, а Нью-Йорке гарантирована, ведь 17 марта – День Святого Патрика, самый зеленый праздник из всех. Не пропустите любимый нью-йоркский парад на 6 авеню, самый веселый, бравый и касочный.

Погода сейчас так непредсказуема, что вполне возможны поздние снегопады или густые туманы, но все равно… это не всерьез и не на долго – ибо, помните:

… Я уже слышал, и слух этот вами проверен,
Будто бы в роще сегодня звенела свирель.

– Что же из этого следует?
– Следует жить,
Шить сарафаны и легкие платья из ситца.
– Вы полагаете, всё это будет носиться?
– Я полагаю, что всё это следует шить!

Следует шить, ибо сколько зиме не кружить,
Не долговечна её кабала и опала…

Так что, «весна грядет, весне дорогу», но это совсем из другого произведения, но направление верное, готовимся к весне: отправляемся в джим, садимся на диету, думаем о модных трендах, ищем вдохновения в прекрасном. А прекрасного в марте в Нью-Йорке много: шоколадное и аэропланное шоу, причем вместе! Фестиваль виски, пива, коктейлей, вина, фламенко и французского кино, причем все по отдельности! Конференция котолюбов, что понятно – март месяц котов и кошек. Выставки цветов и орхидей. Итальянская опера и художественные и фотографические выставки, причем, очень высокого класса, как, к примеру, Scope New York (2-5 марта) или AIPAD на Pier 94. И много-много другое, о чем читайте в нашей Афише и берите себе на заметку.

Начнем мы нашу Афишу с самого важного для нас вечера:
