PLAN DATE: SAT / FEB. 2
If you’re looking to show a date just how hip your hangout spots are, Hunky Dory is the spot. The newly opened cafe is helmed by an all-female team focused on sustainability, making it more than worth your dollars. Serving up healthy yet hearty twists on cafe classics means your oatmeal just got way more exciting with the addition of kabocha squash and wine-poached pears. The bright paint, abundance of plants and art, and ample window light make this cafe feel like the apartment of your put together friend, and with small plates starting at less than $5, you’ll feel like you’re at a wallet-friendly brunch potluck. If Friends was on in 2019, this is where the gang would hang out and sip non-alcoholic cocktails.
Then, amble over to the happylucky no. 1 to check out some art at this small but thriving gallery. Follow the gray door marked with a sunflower into a room of contemporary and often experimental art—think paintings half on walls and half on the floors, objects floating in the air, and paint splashed on mirrors, depending on the current exhibit. The minimalist space has floor to ceiling windows, so as you offer up your artistic interpretations with no feedback from your partner, you can at least get some Vitamin D.
