Ariana x Showgasm
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Tonight, we're starting with a low-key dinner at one of Victoria & Graig's favorite restaurants, Ariana. They serve up authentic Afghani cuisine in an intimate, cozy space. Most tables are for two, and so it naturally lends itself to be a great date night spot. You'll want to put their homemade dill yogurt sauce on everything.
Next, we're taking a wild turn. Showgasm is a monthly variety show hosted by "comedic goddess" Nicole Spiezio at Ars Nova in Hell's Kitchen. If you've never been to one of their shows, you're really missing out. Showgasm is a show and raucous party all in one — expect comedy, burlesque and everything in between from new and rising talent in the theater world.
You have two ticket-type options: the "foreplay & gasm", a $5 ticket that gets you into their pre-show "foreplay" cocktail hour and the show at 8 p.m. OR grab that luxe life $20 ticket for "two drinks & a slice plus foreplay & gasm", which is as amazing as it sounds, and includes two drink tickets and a slice of pizza. Bless you, Ars Nova.
