One way to say you’re into her — say it in the light of day.

Sure, the night time is the right time and lends itself naturally to the wooing arts.

Though in a city with brimming with brew-ha-ha, the light-filled hours are a perfect excuse to get yer butt out of bed, grab a gal and seize the day.

Stop one: Classic jazz brunch at the Rainbow Room

Old New York art deco feel and never disappoints. Endless views. Expansive eats. To top it all off, you’ll be serenaded by a band playing tunes to the likes of Cab Calloway and Cole Porter. Oh, and there’s a raw bar and a salivation-inducing charcuterie spread.

Stop two: Heating things up at King Spa

Blow off steam the Korean way. A bit out of the way. OK, it’s actually in New Jersey. Good news, King Spa has a complimentary shuttle service that will take you to and from the destination. And it’s worth it. It’s massive with three floors, private steam, soak and massage facilities for ladies and gents, food, drinks, recliners with sports and movies going and a nap room. There are salt detox rooms, crystal meditation rooms, radiant heat lounges, an oak-filled super sauna reaching 200 degrees and an ice room for after. It’s also open 24-hours, in case you two never want to leave.

Stop three: The cocktail laboratory, Yours Sincerely

A dimly-lit one room bar. Quaint and cozy. Perfect for winter. And some re-toxing. The focus: highly creative cocktails. Bottle-flipping mixologists beware as the 30 specialty concoctions are all on tap. Recommends include the Empirical Formula (the house G & T) and a sazerac by name Big Worm. And city speakeasies watch your backs as well — Your Sincerely serves up friendly prices to boot with cocktails running $8 a pop.
