NITEHAWK CINEMA 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11249 Dinner and a movie is a still a solid date, in my opinion. Dinner with the movie is even better. At Nitehawk, a beloved movie theater in Williamsburg, you can choose from a delicious burger, nachos, a hummus platter, and an array of jazzed-up drinks while watching one of their select films. It’s small and tickets sell out, so be sure to book in advance and arrive early. BOSIE TEA PARLOR 10 Morton Street, New York, NY 10014 Bosie Tea Parlor is a quaint, relaxing place to wile away an afternoon. It’s a lovely spot in the West Village with an assortment of loose-leaf teas and fresh pastries, including macaroons, cakes, and meringue pies. There are also some interesting books on the shelves to dig into. The teas are amazing, and if you’re not sure where to start, don’t hesitate to ask your waitress for a recommendation.

You can let him melt your heart through his classic Italian dishes at this newly opened restaurant, Sienna Tavern. Check it out, sample a few custom cocktail creations, order the gnocchi, and thank me later! ROCKIT BAR AND GRILL 22 West Hubbard Street, Chicago, IL 60654 After watching football games at Rockit every weekend throughout the fall, nursing the occasional hangover with their brunch menu, and even having my engagement party held there- Rockit feels like home! It’s a delicious American restaurant downstairs, and an awesome bar and lounge upstairs. The whole place is designed by Chicago’s own Nate Berkus, and their signature Rockit Burger will change your life!
