Go All-In On Italian Food at Gnocco Before Taking In A Golden Comedy Show
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
If you’re looking for somewhere to eat that’s as cozy as it is romantic, Gnocco has you covered. This rustic, open layout Italian restaurant is all about charming, old school presentation. From the black and white murals lining the walls to the exposed wood ceiling and brick accents, you’ll have little trouble taking a load off at Gnocco. And when it comes to the food itself, everything from their spinach and fontina cheese-stuffed rollo di pollo and fresh octopus carpaccio di polpo deserve a recommendation. Just be sure to call ahead if you're looking to sit in their outside patio.
Then, seeing as an important part of any relationship is laughter, you and your S.O. have that much more of a reason to check out Golden Spiral Comedy at Dream Baby. Hosted by Katie Compa and Mindy Raff, this stand-up comedy show includes a wide range of comedians, including Justy Dodge (from Comedy Central) and Maria Heinegg (The Worst Thing podcast). Fun fact: the show is called the Golden Spiral, because it follows the Fibonacci sequence (meaning the performances go as follows: 5, 8, 13, and 21 minutes). And as for the bar itself, it’s probably best described as ritz-casual, given its marble/leather decor and laid back vibe. The show runs from 8-11:30 p.m., doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the entire show is free of charge. *cue happy dance* Can't make this one? No worries. The show is the first Tuesday of every month.
