PLAN DATE: WEDS / MAY 22
Date night’s about to get boozy. Start at Casellula, a cheese lover’s dream. While a selection of light bites feature cheese at the front and center, we can’t suggest you go here without crafting a personalized cheese plate where you can choose from more than 30 options. And, since we all know cheese and wine go together like, well, you and your S.O., we recommend splurging on a bottle to split while you enjoy one another’s company.
After you’ve whet your appetite, head over to Russian Vodka House for hearty Russian fare, live music, and of course vodka. The space itself is decked out with retro 70’s decor. Take inspiration from it and do like they did in the 70s (the decade that gave us disco): let loose, have fun, and toss as many back as your heart (or mid-week stressed out self) desires. With reasonable prices for the area and heavy pours, this promises to be a night for the ages.
