PLAN DATE: THURS / MAR. 14
How about a casual little date night to see Jerry Seinfeld—ever heard of him? Obviously, this big shot comedian has been entertaining the masses for over 25 years and is totally the master of his domain (making you laugh). The show will deliver on all the observational comedy you know and love from his sitcom, but instead of your couch, you’ll be inside the historic (and stunning) Beacon Theater. This ain’t your regular open mic basement. You can’t compete with over 2,000 velvet red seats, gilded columns, and giant statues.
Pair your show about nothing with a dinner all about the cuisine of Tuscany. Pappardella is a casual yet charming Italian restaurant with high ceilings, intricate French doors and elegant art—including an Insta-worthy mural of Florence. They also have a terrace, so you can enjoy your pitcher of their signature sangria (go red, trust us) outside if the weather is cooperating. Though they have a lengthy menu, the star here is the pasta, which comes sauced up in every different way you can dream of.
