Laugh A Lot, Then Dive Into A Vietnamese Feast
Union Hall in Park Slope is one of those places that you can pop in any night and leave a happier, more contented couple. They host everything from podcast recordings to karaoke to game shows and more. See their calendar here to pick something that catches your fancy. Come for the comedy but stay for the bocce ball—enjoy a little bit of friendly competition (and work up an appetite) on this place’s indoor court before you head to the next spot.
Once the show ends, treat yourselves to a Vietnamese feast at Bricolage, a short walk away. This place isn’t your typical pho and banh mi grab-and-go counter (of which there are plenty in this city). Bricolage ups the ante food-wise with dishes like lemongrass pork chop and arctic char, making for a tasty date night meal. This place offers a number of seasonal cocktails, but we recommend sampling something from the classic drink menu, which features Vietnamese-inspired takes on your favorite drinks — Thai basil gimlet, anyone?
