Poor In A Private Plane

Summer in New York City is a beautiful thing. Well at least that is what everyone tells me. I personally prefer the Fall but I can appreciate a nice summer night. We try to spend as much time outdoors as we can in the summer because come winter we are not leaving the house for at least 9 months.  Living in New York City can be expensive but in Poor In A Private Plane fashion I have managed to figure out how to have date night for under $15 including food and wine.  Keep on reading to learn more. 
I posted about this before last year but one of my favorite things to do is watch movies outdoors in the summer. I try to go at least once a week. There are so many free movies in the parks all summer long so it has quickly become our “cheap” date night of choice.  Most recently I discovered movies on the Intrepid. Not only is it free but it was really cool  to watch a move on a ship’s flight deck.  I grabbed a bottle of Rosé from Trade Joe’s for under $6 and paired that with store bought chicken and a salad. Our meal including wine was about $15.  With beach chairs in tow we headed to the Intrepid for the perfect date night (along with 5 of our closest friends but I am  still counting it as date night). We all had a great time. If you live in New York City or are planning on visiting definitely check this out. It is a fun and “cheap” way to spend a summer evening. There is one week left to go for the Intrepid movies so if you haven’t been be sure to make it a point to go next week. If you don’t make it here is a list of other movies coming up for the rest of the summer.   See you around the city.

  1. Taima,
    I’m from NY too! My personal favorite is NYC at Christmas time! I just don’t think it gets any better than that! I remember the smell of chestnuts from the street vendors! When I tell my kids about going to the Thanksgiving Day Parade when I was little, I always get all choked up. Great blog!
