Nicole Lapin Free Event
My favorite recent free event was the What She Said panel . The event had a panel, dinner ($25), drinks ($25), and a signed copy of Nicole Lapin’s book Becoming Super Woman ($17). This event was worth at least $67, and was free to attend.

Are you enjoying Daylight savings? I really enjoyed the extra hour of sleep on Sunday. For this week’s free NYC event list expect free floral arrangements, sound meditation, investing classes, freelancer/creator events, knitting, pop ups, panels, and women who travel meet up.
