PLAN DATE: MON / APR. 15
Roll into KazuNori for some OG hand rolls—from the people behind the legendary Sugarfish—this sushi spot is definitely something to write home about. The menu’s not lengthy, but doesn’t need to be, as the small selection is top-notch. And yes, they serve only hand rolls here. This place is a counter-only, no-frills, relaxed restaurant. Once you and your date are seated—which…might take a while, depending on the night—you’ll grab a pencil and paper to mark down which hand rolls you’ll be nomming on. It’s casual, delicious, pretty affordable and a great start to your night.
After sushi, test your wits at Trivia AD’s bar trivia at Slattery’s Midtown Pub, where almost every night of the week, starting at 8pm, you’ll find yourself whispering quotes from The Office or Seinfeld as you scribble down answers. Slattery’s just what you’d expect from an Irish pub in midtown—the staff’s friendly, the beers are cheap and the whiskey’s strong. And in our book, there’s no such thing as too much trivia, which is great because this bar hosts it almost every night of the week. Check Slattery’s events page to ensure your niche expertise will come in handy; there’s nothing better than impressing your date with an abnormal mental library of Michael Scott quotes.
