Ever glanced up at the New York City sky on a clear night, desperately wishing for better star sightings? If so, this date is definitely for you.  Hike a leisurely 5 miles through Harriman State Park’s dark mountain wilderness to a serene lake. Strip down to your skivvies and hold your breath as you jump in for a moonlight swim. Warm up around the fire while you snuggle up together and roast a few marshmallows.

There’s nothing like a bed and breakfast for a romantic getaway, and Bragdon House in Finger Lakes Wine Country is just the place. Take a scenic half-day drive to the Finger Lakes Wine Country for a two-night stay at 1907 Bragdon House B&B. Indulge in a hearty breakfast, then set out to taste the day away in New York’s wine country. Round out your day with a boat tour of Seneca Lake, then retire to the parlor for a cozy evening. It’s the perfect chance to get away from it all and truly relax: just the two of you.

Sunday night is the night to spend with the one you love. Set the DVR and make it memorable. Head to Ken & Cook, a warm, modern brasserie where you’ll have a cozy table for two and enjoy live jazz. Whet your appetite with a dozen fresh oysters to share. Sip wine or cocktails as you enjoy modern twists on classic dishes, like veal pappardelle or steak tartar.  if you’re still not ready to give up on the weekend have a nightcap at Li’l Charlie’s right downstairs, a tropical subterranean cocktail lounge with a decadent ’70s vibe.

As soon as you enter the stunning space, you will be enthralled by Noir’s deco grandeur. Originally an Opera House, this speakeasy turned supper club was once frequented by marquee stars of New York’s Golden Age. Start with handcrafted cocktails like the Five Point Sour or the Ghost of Mary Pickford at the marble bar. Nestle into a banquette in the dining room where you will sample five dishes by Noir’s Michelin-starred chef. Following dinner, ascend the wrought iron spiral staircase to the swanky lounge to unwind with champagne.

A massage that’s as easy to book as ordering a pizza? This just gave new meaning to instant gratification. You and your date will receive a 60-minute couples massage, right in your home. You can feel relaxed and comfortable on your turf, with your own linens. Lay back and let your certified, qualified therapists work out the knots, Swedish or deep tissue-style. End the session feeling refreshed and revitalized—and you never needed to leave your place!
