1. Plan a first date at San Gennaro. The 87th annual celebration features all great things Italian. Start at Mulberry St and work your way to Grand St by tasting & experiencing the best of Little Italy. Totes a NYC tradition (from 9/12-9/22).

2. Cocktails literature-style. Lit Crawl NY is a short-story festival held in lower Manhattan. With over 29 venues participating, you’ll meet tons of writers & artists to talk shop with. 

3. Date Night with Medieval Underwear. Exhibits make for interesting dates and the “Take a Peek: 19th Century Undergarments from the Collection” would definitely provide great convo. Located at Merchant’s House Museum, 29 E 4th St. until 9/16.
