PLAN DATE: TUES / JULY 9
It’s one of those ultra-romantic fantasies you have to fulfill, and this Tuesday you can finally spice it up by the glistening waters of the Hudson while the sun melts into the horizon. Sunset Salsa with Talia is a fun, flirty and totally free way of getting some sexy moves under your belt, pumping those endorphins, and blissfully swinging around with your love. Talia Castro-Pozo and other international guest instructors will teach you the steps, and set you free to salsa ‘round the river together.
A fusion of pan-Asian and French savory cooking, Amber West Village is your next stop after salsa on the pier. Dark, quiet and to the point, this sushi joint rolls out the favorites with casual perfection, hitting the spot with decadent dishes like black pepper flank steak, tangerine chicken, fresh sashimi, and all kinds of unique rolls. It’s a meal that’ll rejuvenate and refresh after you’ve danced your hearts out.
