PLAN DATE: WEDS / OCT. 10
Part I: Drinks at Oscar Wilde. They’re debuting a specialty “Happy Prince” cocktail, available from 10/10-10/31, that’s made with Poland Select Vodka, Cocchi Americano, plum bitters and White Sparkling Wine ($14). In addition, any Film Forum viewers of The Happy Prince can get 50% off the specialty cocktail by showing their ticket. It’s a perfect treat before or after the film. Plus, it’s Oscar Wilde’s birthday October 16th if you feel like celebrating.
Part II: Maybe it’s just us, but we find that the early sundown coupled with lowered temps has got us really embracing our sexy, brooding, artsy selves (yes, even on a Wednesday). If you and your partner are also feeling these vibes, head over to Film Forum to go see a movie. We recommend…wait for it…The Happy Prince! Obviously.
Part III: After watching your film pick, make your way to Cafe Clover to hold court at your own artist’s salon of two. Present your Film Forum ticket stub for a neighborhood discount on your food and drink, and make like the French and embrace the age of conversation of old. We think Bordeaux pairs particularly well with film critique, and Cafe Clover has a number on offer. Pick a bottle, sink into the warmth of the blue banquettes, and let the conversation — and wine — flow freely.
