Every once in awhile, the prospect of dinner, no matter how fancy, seems kind of dull. You've had one foie gras pâté, you've had them, all right? Put a pistol in her hand, and give her a chance to experience something truly novel at West Side Rifle and Pistol Range.

For $65, the two of you will be privvy to a short safety tutorial, and shortly after, will be handed a 22-caliber rifle and 50 rounds for your firing pleasure. After your stress has been executed and your adventurous spirit awakened, hail a cab to scintillating sexy cocktail den Mayahuel (East 6th Street), where you'll wind down with flights of smoky mezcal and tongue-searing sangrita, and keep the fire burning well into the wee hours of the night.
