Date Night


The Campus Clipper is proud to bring you a new feature of our blog, brought to you by me, Derek. My new weekly post will come each Thursday, hopefully providing you enough time to ask that special guy or gal if they have plans for that night, and will focus on fun ideas for a weekend date that won’t limit you to simply dinner and a movie. So for the inaugural post, I have planned a day event. For the month of January, pop-up Open House has launched a hidden oasis at its Mulberry Street location (between Spring and Kenmare), turning the multi-leveled space into a lush, vibrant indoor park called Park Here. What better way to escape this frigid, snowy January then by taking time to remember what leaves and grass once looked like. So grab a date and head to Nolita for a uniquely New York experience, complete with complementary bocce ball and croquet courses (there’s even a see-saw!). Or for those who prefer a more peaceful and relaxing exchange, feel free to lounge under the numerous fake trees, or retreat to a specially designed enclave for a more private setting.┬áPark Here is totally free to the public and is open from 11AM-6PM daily, but remember it will only be around until January 30th. Be sure to check their official website and Facebook page for more information about special events like food vendors and movie nights:
After spending your afternoon enjoying the illusion of spring day at the park, why not continue the date by heading right next door to Tartinery (209 Mulberry Street), an authentic, contemporary French bistro that features an array of delectable entrees and appetizers, as well as an excellent selection of wines, beers, and signature cocktails. Tartinery boasts a warm, comfortable atmosphere that is upscale and romantic, but not overwhelming for those on a first-date. Don’t forget to take advantage of their exclusive deal through the Campus Clipper, valid for a 15% discount off your bill with presentation of coupon and student ID. Check out to find the coupon (under Food & Dining in the Downtown section). For more information about Tartinery and there menu options, visit there website at:
Be sure to check back here at the Campus Clipper blog each Thursday for new, fun ideas to spend with a date for the upcoming weekend.
