Manhattan SideNew York, NY
Date Walking is kind of like speed dating except not as awkward, not as frantic and a heck of a lot more relaxed. When you come to a Date Walking event, you will take a casual stroll with anywhere from 5 to 15 wo/men over the course of an hour or two. Once you've met everyone, we usually get food and/or drinks somewhere. It's a really fun and relaxed way to meet someone special or multiple possibilities face-to-face. This is an open-age event.
MEET: We'll meet at the The Roosevelt Island Tram on the Manhattan side at 1 PM. We'll get to know each other a little for 30 minutes while we wait for everyone to arrive.
DEPART: We depart at precisely 1:30 PM. If you arrive after that time you'll miss the boat, or the tram in this case. You'll need your Metrocard to ride the tram. 100 people will not wait for 1. Do not be late.
WALK #1: Once we get to Roosevelt Island we will walk around the entire island. From end-to-end the island is approximately 2 miles so double that = 4 miles.
WALK #2: After we've walked around the island we will walk 1.4 miles across the Roosevelt Island Bridge and through Long Island City before collapsing at Studio Square. =) Studio Square is an enormous beer garden and restaurant that can accommodate a large group such as ours. If you're not a drinker no problem. Just stay for the food and the company.
NOTE: If you do not want to commit to the entire walk, that's ok. There's no rule that says you have to go all the way. Come and go as you please.
LEAVE: When you've had your fill of food and/or beer you can leave. When that time comes you've got the M, R, N, and Q trains mere blocks from the restaurant. See this link: http://goo.gl/maps/85Tzg
DRIVE: If you want to drive to this event I would suggest driving to the end point of this event and find street parking around 35-33 36th Street, Long Island City, NY 11106 and taking the R, N, or Q train to the starting point in the city here: http://goo.gl/maps/WFCpY
DISTANCE: Approx 5.5 miles in all
When you come to the event pay $10 and I will provide you with a ticket that’s good for 30-days. Hold onto the ticket and come to any/all Date Walking events for 30 days. Just show your ticket and you're good to go.
Why am I paying you a fee for a place I can go to for free? See the answer here.
If you have any questions prior to or on the day of the event, please do not hesitate to give me a call or text at 347-225-3516
Please be aware that while an equal number of men and women is preferred it is not always the case.
