Pier 94, 711 12th Ave., at 55th Street.Gothamist has more on Chocolate week:
This week in New York life is like a box of chocolates – on steroids. (Mmmm, chocolate steroids.) The wicked masterminds behind the 10th annual International Chocolate Show decided that this year the usual three day, 40,000 square foot cocoa orgy just wasn’t going to cut it. So they’ve gotten a number of area restaurants to collectively boost the city’s blood sugar levels by declaring the next six days Chocolate Week.After gorging out on all that delicious Chocolate, have a sleepover at the American Museum of Natural History:
A Night at the Museum, the American Museum of Natural History's wildly popular nocturnal adventure experience, has new and exciting updates for the current season. Imagine yourself traveling as a paleontologist on an expedition while watching Dinosaurs Alive! in the LeFrak IMAX Theater, exploring our live-animal exhibitions with knowledgeable Museum explainers, and challenging yourself with one of our fun Museum Quests. End your night by falling asleep in the darkened halls of one of the world's most famous museums.The Radio City Christmas Show starts this weekend as well.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the world famous Radio City Rockettes is an unparalleled show featuring the Rockettes signature eye high kicks, and precision choreography in multiple show stopping numbers including; the legendary "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers", and "New York at Christmas," a dynamic holiday celebration.The Roosevelt Island Farmers Market will be open on Saturday but no other events are scheduled for Roosevelt Island this weekend.
