Date Nights - March 2017

We enjoyed some low key city dining and entertainment last March for our date nights. We really got into seeing plays and shows in our last couple of years in the city. That was definitely ok by me because the arts is my absolute favorite thing about NYC.

I found a new Chinese restaurant - Excellent Dumpling House - that opened up in Chelsea that we decided to try. We had a few staples for Thai food, but we never found a Chinese restaurant that really hit the spot. This place had serious potential, but this ended up being the only time we visited. The food was great with really quick service and lots of options. After dinner, we made our way down to the Magnet Theater for some improv fun with Kornfield and Andrews - love those two funny fellas together on stage!

Chris opted for burgers from Lucky's before we headed downtown to see The Penitent. Chris was really excited about seeing Chris Bauer in the production. Unfortunately, the story wasn't our favorite. The acting (a four character show) was well done, but the story itself sort of fell flat with us. We haven't had too many busts in our show seeing days so I suppose we were due for a bit of a dud. Of course, it was still a fun night out - which is all that really matters in the end!

Do you enjoy the arts?
What is the best stage performance you've ever seen?
