The Armory Show x Pio Pio 8
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
At The Armory Show, there's certainly no shortage on art. A premier art fair in New York City, The Armory Show includes presentations from over 200 international outlets broken down into 5 sections: Galleries, Insights, Presents, Focus (curated by Gabriel Ritter), and Platform (curated by Jen Mergel). According to its official website, this show is all about “inspiring dialogue, discovery and patronage in the visual arts.” Basically, if you're into art, you'll have a blast walking around this show.
After, head over to Pio Pio 8 to satisfy your traditional/casual Peruvian food itch. Surrounded by walls (and a ceiling) adorned with woven tree branches, you’ll want to prepare yourself for the edible heaven that is their trademark pollo a la brasa with aji verde. Pairing the upscale-feel fare with reasonable prices makes Pio Pio 8 a must-try.
