PLAN DATE: WEDS / NOV. 14
Get off the beaten track and zero in on the small things with your person at Mmuseumm, which features unusual exhibitions consisting of artifacts and objects that tell a history of the modern world. Although it’s about the size of a freight elevator, the current collections, ranging from World Leader Used Tissues to Insecure Things Require Security, are sure to enthrall your collective intellects and give you something new and invigorating to discuss. This is the kind of spot that takes some exploring to get to, so round up your adventurous spirits and prepare to discover something new with your one and only.
New things to talk about means a table to talk over them with. Specializing in traditional Sicilian Italian favorites (aka, lots of savory red sauces) but not without a few modern kicks, the comfort cuisine at Galli will satiate more than just your appetite. Dimly lit and featuring classic exposed brick, it’s easy to tuck yourselves into a private shadow, lock hands across a small wooden table and let the romance take place over acclaimed craft cocktails and fluffy, flavorful bread. A touch of sophistication and expertise brings dishes like hearty chicken parm and grilled calamari to an elevated level that won’t leave you feeling overloaded, so don’t be afraid clear your plate.
