PLAN DATE: SUN / NOV. 18
Tonight, forego your usual date plans (but really, are your dates ever “usual” when you use idk tonight?) for the ultimate experience in espionage at Spyscape, a contemporary museum that showcases dramatic spy stories (from Alan Turing to Robert Hanssen), legit gadgets and more. But the coolest part? You and your person are testing your own espionage skills throughout the entire experience. Think you can lie without a trace? Guess again. Decrypt codes without batting an eyelash? You’ll find out. In the end, you’ll both discover what kind of undercover role you’re best suited for—with possibilities ranging from special ops officer to hacker. Tickets start at $39 for adults, but idk tonight readers get 20% off with code IDKTONIGHT.
Then, continue the thrilling theme of the night and stop by Dutch Fred — a bar that pays homage to the veteran cop who named Hell’s Kitchen. Owned by the same guys behind The Three Monkeys, The Mean Fiddler, and Tanner Smith, this bar taps into the era and legacy of its namesake with a 1920s-style vibe. Settle down amongst the decorated mosaic tile floors, framed portraits of Fred himself, and flat screens showing black-and-white films. Close your adventurous night out sipping on a specialty cocktail while you practice repeating your last names before your first names to each other.
