1. The Artsy Date: artisan craft fair
We spend the day strolling through booths of beautifully crafted jewelry and artfully hand-lettered posters, eating our way through samples of homemade jams, cheeses, and momofuku cookies. Purchases of baby onesies for coworkers, and handmade barrettes for little sisters, are entirely possible. There’s usually no charge for entry, so if you don’t buy anything it’s a pretty cheap date.
