This date has now expired. Check out fresh, new dates here!
If you and your person have been looking for something sweet, new, and meaningful to do together, look no further—NYC Parks is offering a series of free workshops called “Art Inspired By…". The series gives you and your S.O. a chance to create your own masterpieces inspired by work from the artist. It includes an overview of the artist or technique, followed by a hands-on workshop that will give you and your love a fun, productive reason to play with paint while learning a little something about the featured genius. Oh, and did we mention it’s free?
Top off your art lesson with some truly special fare at Safari, the only Somali restaurant in NYC, and an excellent one at that. Order Sambuzas to start, which are triangular pastries filled with aromatic herb beef patties, followed by the popular Hilib Ari (roasted goat served aside with Somali basmati rice and bizbaz sauce) or the zesty Chicken Suqqar (traditional southern Somalia dish, spicy chicken stew with aromatic house spice best served with Barris or chapatti bread). This is the kind of night where trying new things pays off, and this decadent, distinctly Somalian spot is where you make it happen.
