PLAN DATE: WEDS / MAY 15
Tonight, combine water views, floating bars, and delicious classic American fare (it doesn’t get more summer than tacos, sliders, and hot dogs) to make for the perfect night out. The Brooklyn Barge, besides being the coolest floating bar with Manhattan skyline views, also partners with educational organizations in the city to educate New Yorkers on the environmental situation of the East River. Bonus: they host recreational water activities including kayaking, sailing, and fishing.
If you’ve got any party left in you after the Barge (and you should!), rally and head to Adelina’s for wine and—you guessed it—more food. If you’re sticking to wine, this cozy neighborhood spot offers ten on tap, which you can order by the glass, quarter-, half-, or full-liter. There. You’ve got our permission to enjoy your favorite big red, so long as you cheers to the person sitting across from you. Sláinte!
Cozy, Fun, Exploratory

idk tip: Margarita fan? Peggy’s Margarita is a can’t miss. If you’re more in a beer mood, they have 10 excellent options on draft. We love the Montauk Driftwood Ale.
