Our favorite new date: paddleboarding to dinner
Gentlemen, let’s give a chin nod to the ol’ activity date. Staple of the man toolbox. Little cousin to the weekend getaway.
This one involves paddleboards.
Introducing Paddle, Fork & Spoon, in which you and your date will be led on a twilight paddleboard ride to dinner through the Venice Canals.
After Lovelace provides some quick instruction — stiff top arm, relaxed lower arm (seriously, paddleboarding is pretty easy) — he guides you through the canals, imparting historic tidbits and paddleboarding tips along the way.
He’s also got a dry bag for your shoes and valuables.
And if you’re not in the mood for Thai at the Garden, Lovelace can arrange for something else.
The ride back is a romantic nighttime drift lit by stars overhead and the glow of homes adjacent.
Then hopefully it’s homeward – for some romance of a different kind.
