I don’t know about you, but a bad sense of humor is a deal breaker for me. There’s no better way to see what makes your partner giggle than a stand up show, and there’s no better stand up than at Stand Up NY. Since 1986, this comedy club has kept New Yorkers laughing with sets from some of the brightest in the business like Amy Schumer, Artie Lange and Aziz Ansari, rightfully landing it the title of the “incubator of stand-up nobility” by New York Magazine.

Chef Christophe Carron came all the way from Toulouse to help set the tone. You and your partner can indulge in a meal, then if you’re lucky, indulge in each other.
