Some like it hot: Nowadays has a sauna and other winter specials

Looking for a way to keep things hot this winter?

Now welcoming: Hotbox – the city’s first mobile, wood burning sauna. Reservations are $40 a person for 90 minute sessions and no worries if you forgot a rope and towel- rental is $3 per person (there’s a late-night happy hour offering $20/90 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm-4am.)

After sauna sesh, keep your blood pumping with the bar’s toasty cocktail selection and comfort food. With an array of winterized drinks, you can choose from a boozy hot chocolate, spiked cider or a handful of hot toddies. Or, maybe one of each. Make sure you balance things out with some barbecued beef brisket or a the tasty beet, yogurt, and herb salad.

And if you’re still freaking out about entertaining your in-laws for an entire weekend – get your mind off things at the Planetarium. Enjoy a 2-for-1 happy hour until 8pm on Friday. (Note: you can get in free of charge until 10pm on the weekends and an RSVP gives you free entry until 11pm).

Then, completely let go on the dance floor during the Friday night party. Not tired yet? Do it all over again on Saturday.
