Take things to a new level. Let go, hold hands, and unwind at New York’s high-perched zen paradise: Kimoto Rooftop. Take a few selfies at the indoor rock garden and take in the city’s skyline celebs: the Statue of Liberty, Barclays Center, and the Hudson River. Your waiter will bring you a bottle of Moet, or 4 crafted cocktails to pair with a sweet dessert. Does it sound like the ideal date?
The Finger Lakes produced dessert wine, passed appetizers, and fine art. Consider this the ultimate day with bae! Walk hand in hand and toast with decadent dessert wines from The Finger Lakes. If all the beautiful winter-scape canvases leave you a bit chilly, huge wood burning firepits outside will warm hands and hearts. To take it a step further and provide another layer of sensory involvement, a single piece of art, curated by local Brooklyn artists, will accompany each food and wine pairing at this event. If you want to get your “significant other” a keepsake of your perfect date, consider participating in the silent auction and bring home a unique masterpiece. Love and sweet wine are in the air tonight!!
