Sing along and rock out to your favourite U2 songs all from the luxury of a fully stocked, custom suite. Yes, fully stocked – and that means some of Ireland’s favorite beverages. It’s a beautiful day when you get to experience a concert from this kind of comfort, let alone U2. And if Bono isn’t really your thing, then there are plenty of other gigs on offer too.

Indulge in an NYC Culinary Marathon! Dine at Le Bernardin, Per Se and DANIEL + Meet Chef Eric Ripert
A culinary marathon sounds so much more enjoyable than an actual marathon. This incredible journey begins at the starting line known as Le Bernardin for canapés and first course, as well as a kitchen tour and meet and greet with legendary chef Eric Ripert. After awakening the palate, you’ll head over to Per Se for second and third courses, finishing the grueling event with fourth course and dessert at DANIEL. If you’re a foodie, this literally sounds like heaven. And if that’s not enough, wine pairings and transfers between restaurants are included – at least the NYC traffic might give you some time to digest between courses.
