PLAN DATE: SUN / APR. 7
A love so strong it makes you sing? Together? That’s right — New York’s unofficial power couple puts on a glamorous, high-energy performance to get you and your date laughing, crying, ooh-ing and ahh-ing to the uber-cute duo’s series of covers of songs from several different artists. The show’s called ‘Divas’, so expect Beyonce, Britney, Celine Dion and more. Sit back, relax, have a drink (or two, ‘cause that’s the minimum) and let the love you see on stage inspire you as Brendan and Greg fill your hearts with their unique sound, sass, and fashion. The show’s not just featuring your new favorite couple though—it’s filled with features from powerhouses: Jerome Bell (The Voice), Shatira Sha Rolle (Showtime at the Apollo), Katie Miller, DENNY, Nyasia Monroe, Seth Wagner, and Jenna Najjar. Show’s at 8, doors open at 7:30.
When it comes to authenticity, it’s the sweet plantains, flavorful chicharrones and traditional Caribbean mofongo at Tropical Sensation. This hole-in-the-wall latin restaurant is known for its homestyle cooking and vivid decor, where you and your love can dig into savory Caribbean favorites like empanaditas, cubano sandwiches and churrasco steaks under a vibrant tropical ceiling. Plantain chips and pico de gallo set the mood for the luscious, classic Latin dish of your choice that follows–and if the colorful ambiance doesn’t already have you feeling zesty, one of their fruity margaritas is sure to do the trick.
