Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe.
This lowkey lower eastside spot is easily one of New York’s best places to hear the authentic spoken word. Nuyo hosts a poetry slam & open mic every Wednesday (except the first Wednesday of the month) and Friday. Space fills up quickly so purchase tickets ahead of time so that you and your date can enter the venue early and snag dopes seats close to the stage.

Ask yourself this, when isn’t go-kart racing fun? Having said that, treat your sweetheart and yourself to a day of fun competition. RPM allows you to book in advance or “arrive and drive,” which gives you the option to walk into an RPM location on any day they’re open and race that same day.
