The Convent x Amarone NY
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Start tonight's date with a performance of The Convent, a new play by Jessica Dickey at one of our favorite theaters, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater. In an area big enough for only 51 seats, where the audience sits around the stage in Rattlestick’s gutted, intimate space, the show follows a group of women who go on a retreat to live like nuns in the Middle Ages and are baptized with 80s pop, female mysticism, hallucinogens, and sex. The Convent is "a toothy dark comedy about desire, devotion, and the mystery of intrinsic divinity". Our kind of date, without a doubt. Tickets range from $20-45, and the show starts at 7 p.m. (3 p.m. on Sundays, in case you need to reschedule).
Afterward, head over to Amarone NY, named for Italy’s famous red wine, for a late dinner. Because if you're going to eat like an Italian, a cool late dinner is required. Exposed bricks, marbleized beige walls, and muted sconces create a soft and warm atmosphere perked up by the black and white photographs that line the walls. Savor the exquisite Italian flavor as you and yours end your magical night on an intimate note.
