Some wonderful news just came to our attention, and we wanted to pass it right along to you: this Thursday and Friday, Nov. 8 and 9, the Upper East Side’s Neue Galerie will offer free admission and Glühwein—a German and Austrian version of mulled wine—from 2 to 6 p.m.

The museum said in a statement that it is hoping to “spread goodwill in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.” Mission accomplished, thank you!

The Neue currently has a great show of work by Swiss artist Ferdinand Hodler (1853–1918) on view through Jan. 7. My guess is that it’s even better after a piping-hot glass of refreshing Glühwein.
