PLAN DATE: MON / JULY 15
White Maize is a casual, relatively inexpensive spot inspired by Venezuelan cuisine. The main attraction here is the arepas, a popular bread-like food made from maize dough and filled with a variety of customized toppings. Whether you’ve just jumped on the keto bandwagon, your partner is gluten-free, or you both happen to be vegan, the expansive menu at White Maize offers something to satisfy all kinds of dietary preferences. If you’re looking for a lowkey dinner with a twist, this is definitely your place.
After dinner, head to Boat on Smith Street. Go for the cheap drinks, stay for the laid-back vibe, jukebox tunes, and maybe even a round of pool. The dim, cozy interior and friendly atmosphere attract both locals and visitors, young and old. There are a few tables aside from the bar, but you’ll want to snag a prime spot near the fireplace in the back.

idk tip: Definitely ask for the spicy sauce on the side with whatever you get—trust us, it’s good.

idk tip: If you’re turned off by gruff ‘what do you want?’ service, don’t come here (or visit most dive bars).
