We love all the fringy, indie, ride-your-bike-to-’em doings here in Brooklyn, but every so often, who doesn’t like putting on their evening best and heading out for a Broadway show and dinner with the out-of-town crowd at some Times Square joint?
That’s why we’re happy to have a pair of give-away tickets to the Wednesday, Oct. 7 preview performance of Bye Bye Birdie, starring John Stamos and Gina Gershon, and a $100 gift certificate at Tony’s Di Napoli, which is one of those family-style, heaping-platter places where your doggie bags will feed you and your commune-mates for a week. (Let the vegans pick out the pork sausage).
The deal, sponsored by the ticket discounter Seasons of Savings, is this: we’ll trade you this expensive, but actually free, date for a cheap one: You have until Wednesday, Sept. 30 to tell us your favorite ideas for low-rent romance in Brooklyn.
Submit as many ideas as you like (but please put all 43 in one email) but quality counts over quantity. Post them here in the comments section for all to see and be inspired by. If we like your date(s) better than all the others, you get the tickets.
We’ll pick a winner on Thursday morning when we’re nursing our BK Meatup hangover. A hint: we already know about the Brooklyn Bridge, the Botanic Garden and the Coney Island boardwalk. Tell us something we don’t know.
