PS: I am way behind on updating this list to be COVID-friendly and reflect my new residence in DC! Nevertheless, feel free to use this list to guide your planning...

If time allows... what better way to spend our time than exploring all that New York has to offer?

The most memorable connections I've made in this world begin much the same way as any other first-date: connecting over a shared meal or activity. I've found that getting to know each other in a low-pressure, clock-free environment allows us to build natural chemistry... making the rest of the evening that much more fun!


Below, I've provided a brief guide to just some possibilities for our time together. But, please, don't feel limited to this list!  


Here are ust a few places I've adored in NYC. Beyond this... my trusted-sources for food recommendations are OAD, Eater, & NYT's Pete Wells

Let's call in sick Friday & escape early for a 3-day weekend for...

Get heckled at the classic Comedy Cellar in the West Village or uptown at New York Comedy Club.

Unwind after a busy week at the the hot baths at Shibui Spa followed by a relaxing massage.



Take in an exhibit at the Whitney, followed by a romantic stroll down the Highline.

Sporting Events

Whether we're cheering on the Rangers, taking a trip up to the Iconic Yankees Stadium, or pretending the Knicks are any good... watching a game together is a great, adrenaline-infused way to start the evening.
