Park Here

Popping down to your frozen local park is looking less attractive as we brave January, so head to the ingenious indoor green space Park Here in Nolita's Openhouse Gallery (201 Mulberry Street between Spring and Delancey Sts; 212-334-0288, openhousegallery.org; daily 11am--6pm, free; Sat 7--Jan 30). The 4,500-square-foot covered garden boasts a fake lawn, park benches, trees and a sky light to let the sun shine in.

A selection of the city's more summer-centric food trucks and vendors will set up stalls in the park every weekend with Mexicue, Robicelli's Cupcakes and Luke's Lobster kicking things off, and Solber Pupusa and Baking for Good slated to make an appearance later this month. Check Openhouse on Facebook or on Twitter @openhousenyc for scheduling updates.

The active can use the bocce and croquet sets for a friendly game, or take pilates (Mon 10, Jan 17 9--10am; $25, buy tickets) and yoga classes (Mon--Fri, Mon 10--Jan 28 noon--1pm; $25, buy tickets). Belle Fleur will also be hosting flower-arranging sessions (Wed 12, Jan 26 at 5:30pm; $TBD) and Eat My Chocolate will lead a tasting of its cocoa-based treats (Jan 18, 19 at 5:30pm; $TBD). Tickets for both events are available next week from Lifebooker.

To recreate one of our favorite summer pastimes—reclining on the grass and catching a flick—UrbanDaddy is organizing a host of movie nights and dinner parties, possibley including, we hear, an evening with Danny Meyer's burger purveyors (Jan 16, 20--23, 27--29 at 8:30pm; $TBD, check UrbanDaddy perks for updates and tickets).
