Oh God. Oh God. Oh God. Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Know a girl who even pretends to like baseball? This is the date for you.
Brooklyn Bridge Fulton Ferry Park, as we have repeatedly stated, is our favorite NY park. It’s got grass, waterfront, and views of downtown NY and the Brooklyn Bridge. It is postcardian. And on Thursday nights in the summer one of our favorite activities, and a great date, is the park’s outdoor film series Movies with a View. Last year saw an excellent lineup including Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, The Warriors, and Raiders of the fucking Lost Ark. Yes and yes.
Here’s what’s left of Movies with a View (Thursdays):
• The Natural – Aug 16
• West Side Story – Aug 23
West Side Story is probably good for your date but are you going to enjoy it? Be honest.
Best Bets: The Natural isn’t the best date movie but it is romantic and it had THE SCENE which is kind of like sex for the emotions. (Note: emotional sex is something different) You know, THE SCENE:
My eyes just pissed themselves.
If you decide instead on West Side Story be sure to do something to let her know you’re not gay. We recommend bringing a meat product or randomly grabbing her boob and going, “Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice.”
Where: Lawn at the Empire-Fulton Ferry Park section of Brooklyn Bridge Park; F train to York St. and walk less than 5 minutes; Or A/C to High St. and walk about 10 minutes. Alternatively, this is a perfect time to walk across the bridge.
When: August 16 & 23; Music starts playing to the crown at 6:00 pm and the movie starts at sunset (Use this sunset calculator for other dates.) We recommend getting there at least an hour early to get a patch of grass anywhere near the screen.
Cost: Freer than the balls in your pants.
Tip: Decant some wine at home and bring it for the party. Or, Three Thieves makes great white and red wines and packs them in 250 ml Bandit Bullet “juice boxes” which are $2.50 (online). The liter boxes are about $10. We’ve found both for the same prices at local liquor stores. The four-pack would be perfect. Order a few online to have around for other activities.
Tip: For some funny conversation, ask her what fictional sports games she would most like to ave been at. Our list: The Natural, Hoosiers, Lagaan, The Rocky 4 fight in Russia and Caddyshack. Here’s some to get your imagination started.
Tip: Bring a blanket to sit on and some snacks.
