If you’re the type of couple that nerds out over Buzz Aldrin sightings and bonds over documentaries narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, it might be time for your to consider joining the Amateur Astronomers Association. But for the time being, become an honorary member by attending an observation event, which are open to the public. Taking place at Lincoln Center, you’ll be able to examine the moon and Venus with other astronomy-minded folks. Starting around sunset, take a gander at the universe in all its glory before heading to your next destination. Check out their upcoming stargazing events here! The AAA observes at Lincoln Center every Friday and Saturday evening from April to the middle of August and for several weekends in September.

The Smith is a New York institution, serving American standards in a modern, chic setting. We recommend a snack from the raw bar (if you’re feeling fancy, for $125 you can split The Royale with oysters, clams, chilled shrimp, poached mussels, salmon tartare and whole lobster), followed by classic fare with a twist like the burger supreme made with a short rib blend and raclette cheese on a gruyere bun. You can also choose from a variety of steak options, which come topped with your choice of green peppercorn, garlic herb butter or chimichurri. Saturdays feature a paella special for $38. So basically, you're welcome.
