PLAN DATE: SAT / JUNE 8
Beginning with Mediterranean fare at Olea in Fort Greene, you can expect both classic taverna-style food and an extensive raw bar. The vibe is cozy and colorful with lots of plant life. We recommend splitting several of their tapas for an affordable and filling experience.
Then, head over to one of our (and the rest of New York’s) favorite venues, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, or BAM. Though music is in the title, BAM hosts every kind of artistic performance—from book signings to theater to film, like tonight. Catch the 9:30 screening, after dinner, of Diamantino—winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes Critics’ Week. If outlandish political satire isn’t quite your taste, there will also be a musical and vocal exploration of Robert Mapplethorpe’s work. Whichever you choose, you and your S.O. are sure to be discussing it all night long.
