Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
When you need a break from learning about each other—after all, there’s only so much to say about how many siblings you have—take your date to Math Encounters to learn something completely new. Held at the National Museum of Mathematics, Math Encounters is a series of talks by enigmatic mathematicians about how they’ve used their skills in interesting real-world situations. Best of all, the event is free—you don’t need any math skills to see how that adds up.
After feeding your brain, feed your bodies at Indian dining room Dhaba. They make the most of their narrow space with warm, earth-toned walls and a row of lanterns that cast a warm glow. The tables are all in a closely lined row, but what you lack in privacy you gain in efficiency and friendly service. Though the buffet has all the usual suspects, they also have spicy Punjabi specialties, so if you’re feeling wild after all the math, try the dhaba dal or Vada Pav.
