PLAN DATE: TUES / MAY 7
Dust off those winter blues, and get your lycra ready—summer means outside activities, including the New York Road Runners Open Run Club! If you and your partner are the type of couple that needs a little encouragement, or motivation to hit the pavement instead of the bar, this is just the club for you. Runners of all levels (including dogs, if on a leash) are invited to join in, every Tuesday. To participate, meet on the path south of Fornino at Pier 6 at 6:45pm for registration. The run begins at 7:00pm and the course comprises a full 5K.
Iron Chef House is just a few (brownstone filled & picturesque) blocks away from Brooklyn Bridge, and a local neighborhood staple—read: secret—in the Brooklyn Heights community. Owned and run by “John” a classically trained Japanese sushi chef, you can expect high-grade sushi, plus a few inventive Japanese dishes, all of which, are very generous portions for a fraction of the price you’d expect at this level of quality. A dimly lit, wood-filled little den, reminiscent of the Izakaya style bars you’d find in Japan, Iron Chef is one to impress your S.O., any night of the week, without breaking the bank.
