The Boil x The Box
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Tonight is about all things bold and sexy, beginning with dinner at The Boil, a New Orleans-style seafood restaurant on the Lower East Side. Get ready for old-fashioned Creole cooking and Cajun flavors right here in the big apple. Order your choice of shellfish by the pound, accompanied by your choice of sauce and heat. Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty (your night’s pretty much headed in that direction anyway) and, make sure to enjoy the food the way they recommend. Twist. Peel. Pull. Suck.
After you clean up, head over to The Box—it’s about to get wild. Advertised as a “theatre of varieties”, this exclusive bar and nightclub features nightly shows that combine music, theater, burlesque, and erotica. Be warned, if nudity and stripteases aren’t your thing, this probably isn’t the place for you—the shows have been known to have a ton of ‘em, along with circus acts, “human oddities”, and big-name performances. The spot also gives us serious ‘20s vibes. (Of course, it helps that the space used to house a 1920s sign factory) and it doesn’t have an official cocktail list—it’s up to you to get whatever you want. Yeah, sinful doesn’t begin to cover what this night will bring your way, so go and get your freak on.
