UNIQUE DATING IDEA
Hi, I want to take a date to either a cooking course or preferably a cocktail course. Most course I have found last over 4 hours. Does anyone know of courses in the city which aren't as long?
You might want to check out the Institute for Culinary Education.
Here's an example:
It's three hours. They should have a new listing for more classes, for September-December coming out online around August 15. Most of their cooking classes (but not all-depends on the topic and the instructor) tend be more like four hours. The website lists specific times-check out the calendar listing. Great idea for a date.
My sister and BIL just took one of these classes at Astor Wines (Astor Center). I think it was this "Cocktail Lab" class. They enjoyed it. There are other classes offered -- the one called "10 Most Famous Hotel Bars" sounds like it could be a good idea for a date -- and they are only 2 hours (but the hotel one is not until September).
Moore's Brothers, the highest rated wine shop in the city by zagat (29), offers wine tastings/courses quite often. They specialize on European wines. Whenever I have gone here, they have always been incredibly insightful and I take home a winner. They have wine at every price range also
