Cuddle Up To Free Dates From HowABoutWe For Couples


New Yorkers have endless date options - snagging reservations at the newest celebrity chef restaurant, a summer afternoon picnic in Central Park, late-night cocktails at a “secret” speakeasy - I could go on and on. But, when you’ve been a couple for a while, weekends are filled with running errands rather than leisurely boozy brunches and Friday evening intimate dates are now nights in on the couch with a full DVR and a bottle of cheap wine.

When things have gotten a bit too comfortable or you’re just looking to find new, exciting experiences in the city that doesn’t sleep, HowAboutWe for Couples is a subscription service designed specifically for those of us in love and looking to get of the apartment for some old fashion romance - wining and dining, cool concerts and more!

Sign up for HowAboutWe for Couples and each month you and your significant other will receive a new “DateBook” - filled with pre-planned, one-of-a-kind experiences in the city you love.
HowAboutWe for Couples membership (for only $22 per month) gets you FREE HowAboutWe Dates each month, sold-out tickets and members-only events, up to 75% off other HowAboutWe Dates and Couples Rewards. Not sure if you’ll love these curated dates? No worries - membership requires no commitment and you can pause or cancel at any time. Dates on HowAboutWe for Couples can also be purchased as a non-member, without the member discount and other benefits.

HowAboutWe knows how busy couples are. Especially NYC couples running from work to the gym to events to finally crashing in bed late-night. That’s why most dates are flexible and can be scheduled whenever you decide. Some are one-time-only scheduled events, like performances or special excursions, but others can be booked at your convenience. Whether it’s a delivered brunch to your apartment to enjoy a lazy and sexy Sunday morning in or a night out on the town at a fabulous restaurant with multiple courses, HowAboutWe for Couples has tons of flexible options for dates!

I’ll be trying out a HowAboutWe for Couple date with my guy after the holidays (as his few weeks with mono have put a damper on any date night fun this month) and will be sure to report back on just how fabulous our date was with a full recap. Go ahead and book your date now too. 

Happy Dating and Happy Holidays! xx

Boukiés Offering Greek Prix Fixe Menu

(Boukiés Octopus is a standout plate)

Serving traditional Greek Meze in a modern setting, Boukiés is a must visit in the East Village for their delicious Mediterranean cuisine. They’ve recently launched an affordable $20 prix fixe, available daily from 5-7pm. The early bird certainly gets the worm if you’re up for dining in the early evening at Boukiés!

The three courses offered on the new prix fixe menu include a choice of soup or salad, a main course, like their fall-apart, melt-in-your-mouth Paidakia Stifado (Braised Short Ribs) and ends with a sweet dish, including the flaky Galaktoboureko (Buttery Phyllo Pastry with Vanilla, Citrus Cream and Honey Syrup).

Boukiés is also offering a four-course prix fixe Christmas Eve menu for $60 per person, highlighted in my recent CBS New York article featuring NYC’s 10 Best Restaurants Serving Christmas Dinner, so make sure to check out those details if you’re looking to give yourself a break this holiday with a homemade dinner that you don’t have to spend hours cooking in your tiny NYC kitchen.

Check out Boukiés new prix fixe menu here. For traditional Greek dishes with innovative twists and quality, fresh ingredients, Boukiés is the perfect setting for a date night or family dining experience.

Boukiés Restaurant. 29 E. 2nd St.
