Hang loose at Butler’s high ropes course
Maybe you and your date are the thrill-seeking types who like your dates adrenaline-fueled, and for that there is a regular open ropes course at Butler. Best of all, unlike the rest Go Ape and other high ropes courses around town, this one is free on open days. Save that money for a slice of Byrne’s grilled pizza just down the street on 56th.
Get into a romcom-ready berry fight at Spencer Farm
Aren’t you guys so cute with your baskets and stained fingers? Berry picking is always the way to go when it comes to, ahem, farming out your date ideas. It takes more time than apple or pumpkin picking so you have lots of time to chat, and you can screen out those not dextrous enough to tickle the delicate fruit off the vine. While you’re there, buy one of Spencer’s transcendent, freshly made pies and see how long it takes for the conversation to devolve into a lot of extended “pie” metaphors.
