Morning Brief: February 13
What a weekend in New York City! MSG's hosting it's first NBA All-Star Game since 1998. Tomorrow's Valentine's Day, that most New York-y of holidays. New York Fashion Week goes on, bringing haute couture to Lincoln Center and beyond. And it's Mardi Gras weekend, with the big event on Tuesday.
But it won't be easy. No, maybe Friday the 13th is to blame, but officials are warning of a very cold weekend - Sunday night should be a low of 1 degree, with a windchill as low as negative. Love is in the air, indeed.
