We’ve made it through the holidays, state of the union address and the polar vortex – 2019 we’re ready for you. With all the stresses (well, almost all) falling behind us, February is here and it’s time to share the love – not just on valentines but for the whole month!

For this #MustDo in NYC, a roundup of events to spread love through charity, date nights and by supporting the LGBTQ community.

Cupid’s Annual Run in Your Undies

We know it’s still cold, but it’s time break out your nice lingerie for a good cause. Cupid’s Undie Run is a fundraiser for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic tumor disorder that affects 1 in every 3,000 births. Because those affected by NF can’t cover up their tumors to feel more comfortable, the dress code helps us all feel a little exposed.
