Tis The Season To Be Single. A Single New Yorker's "To-Do" List This Holiday Season.

4. December 2016

Single and living in NYC, "the singles capital of the world"? You should definitely check out these singles events, date ideas and activities and find a way to fit them in this holiday season. 

Saturday, December 10th: SantaCon "Ho-ing for charity"
It doesn't get much better than 1,000s of inebriated singles decked out in Santa gear merrily trollop-ing from watering hole to watering hole. Not sold? Did I mention admission is just a ten dollar donation, which goes to charity. 
Here’s a tip: If forget to wear your thermals find someone to keep you warm sooner rather than later!

Saturday, December 31st: The City's Largest New Year’s Eve Singles Party: If you’re single on New Year's Eve you need to check out this singles party at Stitch Lounge. 400+ New York singles, hour open bar, appetizers, DJ spinning dance music, photo booth, continental breakfast and more. If you are single and out on New Year’s Eve, you’re definitely looking for love…or at least, at a minimum, a midnight kiss. Tip: Get your tickets now & save $50.00. Don't wait too long to get tickets for New Year’s Eve or you will pay the price, quite literally (tickets are $100 at the door). 

Give The Gift Of Your Time If you’re single during the holidays you should definitely volunteer to help others. New York Cares is a great organization for finding volunteer opporunties. I have heard from many singles that have volunteered during the holidays and ended up meeting their significant other in the process. Whether it be a volunteering to walk homeless dogs at your local animal shelter, a coat drive, or handing out hot meals on Christmas, there are numerous organizations and opportunities to give back during the holidays. Give and you shall receive. It’s cliché but true. 

Some great first date spots you’ll want to check out:

Café LaloThis little famous NYC cafe was seen in the classic movie “You’ve Got Mail.” It’s French inspired and intimate. They frequently offer live music. Usually jazz or classical. It’s an ideal spot to hit before the movies or going to the theater. It is also perfect for a nightcap after dinner. Tip: If you're a guy and treating, make sure to leave a decent tip. Women notice these things and if you don't tip or treat staff well it can be a total turn-off.

Bryant Park Winter Village:  Not only is there ice-skating (bring your own skates or rent a pair for just twenty), Urbanspace in partnership with Mad. Sq. Eats—is bringing in countless retail shops, comprised of unique kiosks and eateries for your shopping and dining pleasure. Tip: If you go ice-skating take a fall and bring your date down with you. It will for sure be a bonding moment with much laughter...as long as no one breaks a leg. That would definitely not be recommended.

Max Brenner’s (Union Square): It's impossible to go wrong with ‘chocolate by the bald man.” This is a great date spot. Gazing across a table of chocolate fondue into the eyes of your date while sipping on a warm “hug mug” of Mexican Spicy Hot Chocolate is kind of hard not to enjoy. Tip: Skip the meal and go straight to the dessert menu, which includes items like Chocolate Chunk Pizza, Urban S’mores For Two and so much more.

Flute Bar: I’ve never gone to this bar on a first date and not ended up making out with the person I was with. It’s chic, comfortable and most importantly…lounge-y. They have amazing cocktails and small bites to nosh on. Tip: Don’t recommend drinking more than two cocktails (they tend to be potent) and can lead to extreme PDA.
