PLAN DATE: WEDS / JUNE 26
The subtitle of Here and Queer may be “Laugh Til You’re An Ally,” but clearly all who are already allies or queer themselves will enjoy this hilarious improv show. Featuring an all queer line up, the show consists of a monologue or two from a famous guest that inspires an off the cuff improv set. The show is at UCB’s massive Hell’s Kitchen location, so you and your date can help pack the house with laughter.
Wind down after the show with drinks at Hourglass Tavern & Bettibar. This restaurant and bar is made up of two floors, so you can choose between classic cocktails in the Old School tavern or have a more upscale experience at the speakeasy upstairs. The beer options aren’t huge but the hospitable bartenders can make you a mean cocktail at a great price. If you’re feeling lucky, you can always order the mystery beer and shot.
