To follow up our now somewhat antiquated “Most Romantic Places For a Date in Bushwick” list (antiquated because Wreck Room is now closed, but not forgotten), we’ve decided to compile a whole new slew of places for you to take your Valentine (or just a rando you happened to pick up while celebrating Friday the 13th). So grab a condom or steal your roommate’s birth control and get ready for romance like only Bushwick could provide.
The rooftop of 260 Moore: Here you can have it all, including a candlelit picnic peppered with PBR as you watch the sun set over the gorgeous view of the corporation we call Roberta’s.
The basement of the McKibbin: What better place to show love for one another than the dungeon-like ambience of this classic Bushwick basement?
On some bark in Irving Square Park: Now that the Jefferson stop has become affordable only to the likes of Miley Cyrus and Amanda Bynes, and the Wilson Avenue L area is your best bet for living cheaply, Irving Square Park has officially usurped Maria Hernandez Park as the premier park to step in dog shit in.
Where: The space, formerly open to the public, is a lot harder to get into these days, but well worth it if you can finagle you and your date’s body in there. Unpretentious and unadorned with any decor, this “container” really allows you and your romantic interest to focus solely on one another–or just fuck each other’s brains out because you’re so bored with the conversation.
Seeing a show at Cheap Storage: Sweaty, grimy and altogether uncomfortable, taking in a “concert” at Cheap Storage is the perfect way to connect over your shared love of shitty DIY bands.
Secure your Valentine’s heart by taking him or her (I don’t what gender roles entail these days; it seems like women do more of the taking at the moment) to one or all of the above locations this February 14th.
