PLAN DATE: FRI / MAY 17
Don’t have enough dough to book a date night in Paris? That’s fine because Paris can come to you! The Cooking Place at the Fairway Market holds couples cooking classes that will teach you everything you need to know about the cuisine of the night, and tonight it’s all about fine French dining. You’ll make a three-course meal consisting of tuna tartare, steak frites and a chocolate torte. A night out that’s both memorable, delicious and leaves you with impressive cooking skills? A winner in our book.
Next, continue the night at Beacon Bar, the perfect post-dinner spot in the swanky lobby of the Beacon Hotel. While the inside is sophisticated enough, if it’s a nice night, there’s always outdoor seating available. Couple that with the occasional live music and it’s dynamite. The drink menu is what you’d expect from a somewhat upscale hotel bar, meaning there’s plenty to choose from—and prices are closer to what you normally pay for lunch. Cheers!
