Can’t make it to South Korea for the Winter Olympics? No worries, because Mr. Purple has you covered. Come watch the Olympics at Mr. Purple’s “Cabin in the Sky” pop-up (open until March), while taking in sweeping views of Manhattan.

Enjoy chocolate and cheese fondue, as well as winter cocktails like S’more Than a Feeling and Cure for the Common Cold. Can you think of a better place to catch the Olympic games than on Mr. Purple’s large projection screen all month long? Nah, me neither. More information here.
