GAL APPROVED! No More Sex on Outlander? Brunch & Candy Done Right! Plus: Attend These Fashionable Events & Fundraisers in NYC!By The DivaGals | April 8, 2016 | Gal Approved
WATCH. Our fearless E-I-C is OBSESSED with Outlander. So of course, we were front and center for the screening premiere, held inside the Museum of Natural History in New York City! We can tell you this season you’ll “vive le France” as Claire and her beloved Jamie – who is broken after his assault but not defeated – try to change history and save Jamie’s clan from being erased in a bloody war. TV DivaGal also attended the Outlander afterparty, where the museum’s whale room had ben transformed into a stunning French garden circa 1700-something, complete with sweet treats! Check out our exclusive red carpet interview at the end of this post with #WBWD Sam Heughan, who answers our most burning question: is there no more sex in season two? Watch Outlander, second season premiere on Saturday, April 9 at 9 p.m., only on Starz.
TASTE. Did someone just say brunch? Our TV DivaGal likes to stay close to home on the weekends, so one of her fave spots is K. Rico in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen district (it’s just off Times Square). We stopped by to celebrate the South American-infused restaurant’s one-year anniversary, and discovered its tasty Brunch menu! Dig into homemade granola with yogurt, crispy pork belly and eggs or a prime steak burger on Saturday and Sunday – up until 4p.m. Make sure to try K Rico’s signature Pisco Sour Clasico cocktail, made with Pisco, squeezed line, simple syrup and egg white. You won’t break the bank either, as regular entrees are under $20, and for a mere $23, you can make it a boozy brunch with and entrée and unlimited mimosas, Bloody Marys and margaritas! Enjoy their back patio too!
TASTE TOO. What started as a cute little sweet shop on the upper east side of Manhattan has turned into string of successful shops in numerous cities around the country. The divas celebrated Dylan Lauren‘s sweet success and the launch of her third Dylan’s Candy Bar shop in Manhattan. We sipped on candy-infused cocktails as the daughter of the famed designer Ralph Lauren celebrated her Resident magazine cover. Not in a Candy Bar city? Satisfy your sweet tooth with Dylan’s Candy Bar online!

The New York City Mission Society is honoring Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) Founder and Artistic Director and multiple Grammy Award winner Arturo O’Farrill at its annual Champions for Children Gala on Wednesday, April 13, at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in New York City.
