The streets are still covered in boot-filling, sock-soaking, disgusting-ing slush, which means your list of viable date ideas has been reduced to “Why don’t you just come over and we can hang out... here?” And since that only works, like, 75% of the time, you're gonna need these: NYC's 18 best winter date options.
Go to the Waldorf-Astoria for a crazy Sunday brunch
Every Sunday, the Waldorf-Astoria hosts the most decadent, utterly ridiculous buffet brunch in all of New York. The menu reads like a Dadaist mashup of what people in the ’50s thought was fancy: oysters, caviar, lobster, carved meats, Baked Alaska, Champagne, more caviar, more Champagne. The thing costs a hundred bucks a person, but it’s a total showstopper. Bonus: they’re doing a special day-after-Valentine’s brunch on February 15th in case you're in need of Bloody Mary-soaked, you-screwed-up-Valentine's-Day redemption.
MoMA it up all day and all night
For the final weekend of the Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs show, MoMA is staying open all... night... long. There’s something so much more secretive and alluring about checking out a museum at 3am than at 3pm, plus it would make a pretty showstopping surprise, go get a little boozy at a bar in Midtown, then walk your date to the MoMA without explanation. Boom.
