Modern Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan, located conveniently just on the border of Times Square, is one of our favorite dining destinations, and now that they've revved up their menu and late night lounge, we can't help but sharing the good news. This highly-rated resto recently launched a prix fixe pre-theater menu for $38 that is available from 5:30-6:30 every day. The menu will include a choice of cocktail or glass of wine, along with choice of appetizer, main course, and a selection of scrumptious macarons for dessert. The menu offers three choices of appetizer, including their divine dim sum platter, as well as five options for your main course, featuring some of the restaurants signature dishes like their spicy prawn or stir-fry black pepper rib-eye. All main courses also come with pak choi and steamed jasmine rice or egg fried rice.

Last week, artist Steven Colucci debuted his new scarf collection, as well as "Sounds of Color" paintings at The National Arts Club in Gramercy Park. The exhibit was displayed alongside Andy Warhol sketches and was debuted while Shea serenaded guests with festive Christmas tunes. Colucci has been working with The American Cancer Society, as well as the Quogue Wildlife Refuge to raise awareness and funds during the holiday season, and therefore all proceeds from the event benefitted these two organizations.
