Sunnyside Date Nights is a spin-off from Sunnyside Shines' Midsummer Moves plaza programming from years prior, which increased access to fitness activities in the neighborhood and activated Lowery Plaza as a public space. This year, we wanted to bring more glamour and romance to Sunnyside on Wednesdays with free partner dance lessons at the plaza and with select dinner specials at local restaurants. So come on by the plaza, with your signifigant other, a budding romance, your family, or come as you are, and enjoy an evening out in Sunnyside, Queens.
In June, Dance Matters NYC, a local dance organization in Sunnyside, will be teaching the fun and energetic Swing dance. In July, Long Island City YMCA will be heating up the dance floor with Salsa! We are also partnering with Sunnyside Florist, a local business that has been in the neighborhood for over 50 years, to offer a discount of 20% off $20 or more on bouquets (cash and carry only). Each night will feature up to three dine-in specials in the neighborhood. On June 5th, Cardamom Indian Cuisine and Bajeko Sekuwa will be featured; both menus will be available on www.SunnysideShines.org.
The program is public and open to all. For more information, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-606-1800.
