PLAN DATE: TUES / DEC. 12
Greenlight is an especially wonderful date destination because of its approachable staff and its utter charm. Of course there are books galore, but Greenlight also works hard to foster community and drives home a special commitment to creativity — it’s no wonder Hillary Clinton chose to host a book signing there. Whether you and your partner want to disconnect for a bit so you can reconnect over a good book, or you’re just happy to get out of the apartment, there’s no place to unwind quite like a bookstore.
Once you’ve picked up a few good books, visit Baba Cool Café nearby for some light and delicious fare. If you’re not in the mood to enjoy one of this chill spot’s beer or wine options, go for the kombrewcha on tap, a fermented tea comprised of ginger, coriander, and lemon.
686 Fulton Street, Brooklyn
idk tip: Greenlight has a collection of signed books for sale, including books by Anna Faris, David Sedaris, and Dan Rather. See upcoming signings here.
