If it’s in season, catch a game at Citi Field. Make sure to grab your kosher hot dog, knishes, or pretzel at the Kosher booth (near section 115 on the Field Level as well as section 408 on the Promenade Level.)
Get to know your date by being trapped in a room with them! It’s more fun than it sounds. You’ll have to use your communication skills, teamwork and intelligence to escape the room. We went to Mystery Room NYC in midtown and loved it. Follow up with dinner at Colbeh or Jerusalem Cafe if you’re going for a more casual vibe.
I’m a total museum geek so you can just skip this one if you hate museums. But truly, there are some first class museums in New York. Take advantage of the city & up your culture rating with your date by taking them to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Jewish Museum, or the Frick Collection. Make sure to space out and stare at a painting like you’re looking deep into it’s soul (extra brownie points for being deep!). Follow it up with a coffee. You can find a cool place by browsing this site.
You’ve finally found a reason to visit the Top of the Rock. Evoke your date’s romantic side by taking them up to the best view Manhattan has to offer.
Show your date that you are different by doing something out of the ‘norm’ – by leaving the city! Go skiing or apple picking – do something s/he’ll be sure to remember.
