Abandon the sofa and grab your coat—New York City has some of the best Oscar viewing parties around! The Academy Awards air this Sunday, and since it's of the biggest televised events of the year, plenty of venues are putting on celebrations filled with trivia, specialty cocktails, and of course, big screen TVs.
This music venue and multimedia art cabaret is hosting The Big Oscars Quiz Thing, an annual party and live trivia experience. The game show-like event will test you and your friends, pitting teams of attendees against each other to answer questions on the movie industry, music, history, sports, and more (you write answers on their Big Quiz Thing Answer Pad to avoid any form of shouting-out-incorrect-answers humiliation). The night starts at 5:30 pm, with the trivia contest preceding red carpet and award show fun. Tickets are $15, but $10 in advance.
Blue Olive Market, an eatery featuring fresh ingredients and traditional Greek favorites, kicked off their first ever Weekly Wine Tasting and Pairing Event last Friday. Joonbug sampled the specially designed three-course meal (including expertly paired wines for each dish), and let us tell you: We were impressed.
This Mediterranean marketplace; comprised of various food stations, a marble wine bar, and small eating area; made its grand debut last month. With a focus on organic ingredients and fine imports, the hot spot prides itself on chef-centric cuisine and authentic Greek hospitatlity. They also house the best frozen yogurt we've ever tasted. That's right. Out of all the Pinkberry and wannabes in the world, this place's Greek fro-yo beats them all, hands down. But we'll get to that later.

In the heart of the West Village lies a very charming gated alleyway that has become the home to Virgola, NYC. Just six feet wide with limited seats, making a reservation to snatch a coveted spot at Virgola is essential. The location of the restaurant holds a lot of history with many proud fixtures which the owner, Joseph Marazzo, has built himself. Upon entering Virgola, the black colored exposed brick walls and the soft lighting from an impressive vintage chandelier, will take you away from the bustling streets of New York City for the ultimate epicurious delight.
Monday night just could not arrive fast enough for JoonBug’s 7:30 reservation at All’onda, a new Italian restaurant located on 22 E 13th Street that opened on December 23rd, 2013. Braving the cold that evening, we hopped on the L train and arrived in Union Square with huge appetites. Passing the other shivering New Yorkers and straining against the brisk January night, the warm look of the restaurant with its glow of iridescent lights and open windows looking in on the happy diners, was inviting and exciting.
