The cold weather may keep many holed up in their apartments, but the return of a special program encourages New Yorkers to explore the city this winter.

NYC & Company announced the return of NYC Winter Outing, which officially kicked off on Jan. 21. The three-week period combines three of NYC & Company’s three signature programs — NYC Broadway Week, NYC Restaurant Week and NYC Must-See Week — creating ultimate value across the five boroughs. 

NYC Winter Outing will run through Feb. 9.

“Following an overwhelmingly positive response, we’re pleased to welcome NYC Winter Outing back for its second year, adding unmatched value to the enchanting experiences offered across the five boroughs during the winter months,” said NYC & Company president and CEO Fred Dixon.

During the three-week period, those who participate can take advantage of NYC Broadway Week, NYC Restaurant Week, and NYC Must-See Week, which will be running simultaneously. Select Broadway shows and city museums, attractions, performing arts centers and more will offer 2-for-1 tickets, while almost 400 participating restaurants will feature prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner, ensuring that you can get a taste of what these eateries have to offer.

A full list of participating shows, restaurants and businesses is available at www.nycgo.com/nyc-winter-outing.

For the first time this year, NYC & Company is partnering with Mastercard to give Mastercard holders exclusive access to offers that can help enhance their NYC Winter Outing, including early access to tickets and reservations.

“It is Mastercard’s priority to provide cardholders with Priceless experiences in top travel destinations around the world across the passions that bring us together. Partnering with NYC & Company to simultaneously promote theater, dining and culture in NYC is the perfect way to emphasize that commitment,” said Cheryl Guerin, executive vice president of North America Marketing & Communications at Mastercard.
