As I mentioned, I had a date with a very dull man last night. Lucky for me, he picked a great place for us to meet. Someplace that would never have occured to me, before. But it was such a good choice that I’ve decided it belongs on my Best Date Spots list.
At 70th Street right on the Hudson River is a park with a cafe (it’s called the Pier 1 Cafe). It’s one of the newer river parks (and hence one of the newer cafes). I don’t know how long it’s been there. Maybe five years? It’s a neighborhood that I don’t usually wander into, that southwestern bit of the UWS where Trumpland casts a shadow over everything for blocks.
Anyway, that cafe happens to have pretty fine sangria. So on a beautiful night (like last night) you can sit by the river and drink sangria. Who cares if your date is boring? You’ve got sangria and the river. What more does a girl need?
