When my boyfriend and I first started dating two and a half years ago, we used to go out almost every night: cocktails, dinner, dive bars. But now he’s training for the New York City Marathon (!) and I prefer a vinyasa flow to a vodka soda, and so: our average night is more Netflix binge than Broadway opener.

Even so, we still try to take advantage of the incredible array of  activities in New York City.
