Take the day off from work and school next Wednesday, January 15, to observe the holiest of New York holidays: National Bagel and Lox Day. (Orrr just celebrate it over the weekend!)

Yep, it’s an entire day dedicated to the classic NYC breakfast—and lunch, dinner, and snack! Honor the ring-shaped carb and its blanket of smoked fish with an afternoon of iconic NYC activities for the whole family.

EAT: Bagels and Lox, of Course!

Indulge in the bagel tower at Sadelle’s in SoHo, one of our favorite spots for smoked salmon and all the fixings. Make your reservations now! 463 West Broadway (between West Houston and Prince Streets)

DRINK: Champagne and Hot Cocoa

Cheers to the holiday with a glass of Sadelle’s bubbly with your brunch. The kids can clink their mugs of hot chocolate.

WATCH: A Film at the Angelika

A cultural hub of downtown Manhattan since 1989, the Angelika Film Center & Cafe always shows quality cinema. For example: Little Women! It also has incredible food that goes beyond candy and popcorn, including empanadas and real nachos. 18 West Houston Street (between Broadway and Crosby Street)

DO: Stroll Through Washington Square Park

People-watch, enjoy the street performers, play chess, and take a family selfie under the nearby iconic Washington Square Arch. (Arch is located at the base of Fifth Avenue between MacDougal Street and University Place)
