Climb Your Way Through This Date at Brooklyn Boulders and Earn Post-Activity Drinks
Self-care is all about balance, and on tonight’s date, you can do something good for both your body and soul in Park Slope. Start out with a climbing session at Brooklyn Boulders Gowanus. If you’re new to climbing, you can sign up for one of their intro classes, which includes gear rental and hands-on instruction. There’s nothing like learning a new skill together, especially one that requires two people and gets the heart pumping. If heights aren’t your thing, you can always sign up for a yoga class to break a sweat.
After your workout, you’ve earned yourself a drink, so head over to Lizzie King’s Parlor. It has the low-key vibe of a neighborhood spot while serving drinks worthy of the fanciest cocktail bars. Check out The Campbell Investigation—a gin-based cocktail with a drop of CBD extract—for the ultimate chill and post-climb recovery. In addition to their cocktail menu, there’s an extensive list of craft beers from New York on tap and in cans. And depending on what you’re in the mood for, you can nosh on something lighter like the Baby Hemp Salad or go for a full load with their butter-fried grass-fed burger. As long as it all balances out, right?
