If the CR can provide some ideas that would be much appreciated….
Thanks!January 2, 2011 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1122642yeshivabochur123Participant
Courtyard Marriott 100 Chestnut Ridge Road in Montvale, NJ. They have a nice lounge that’s good for a first meeting. Its about 10-15 minute drive from Monsey.January 2, 2011 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #1122643eclipseMember
That reminds me of when I came in to Monsey from out of town to go out with a boy from….well,NOT Monsey either.He spent at least an hour driving in circles until I finally told him he should just park in the nearest parking lot,please.So we shmoozed until it was time to get lost again going back.Ahh…romance.I don’t know who felt dumber–him or me.I was all dressed up and stuck in a yeshivishe car,and he…well,there were no GPSs in those days,but still…January 2, 2011 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #1122644popa_bar_abbaParticipant

If you want to go to eat then there is a chinese, american restaurant called Wok n Grill. It’s amazing!! Or you can travel 20 minutes and go to teaneck where there is tons of places!January 3, 2011 3:09 am at 3:09 am #1122648Sister BearMember
Maybe don’t so somewhere in Monsey proper as she might not want to be seen by all her friends.January 3, 2011 3:14 am at 3:14 am #1122649ImaofthreeParticipant
Bundle up and go to Bear Mountains!January 3, 2011 3:28 am at 3:28 am #1122650cshapiroMember
im not from monsey but i thought everyone goes to woodcliff lake hilton…or purple pear lol :))January 3, 2011 6:41 am at 6:41 am #1122651Some-OneMember
not purple pear!! rlly rlly not the type(its like the hack of town, usually bustling with ppl) wok and grill more the type.
i think its probably smarter to stick with one of the hotel lobbies-google it beforehand- but if u want to go out to eat ur probably better off in teaneck (mocha bleu is the dating hotspot of monsey, private, quiet, good light food or just drinks and nice dessert…HIGHLY RECCOMNDED) or the monsey sushi metzuyan.
alos if the weather is nice and u dont mind the drive-i know someone who went to woodbury commmons just to walk around or the shorthills mall…January 3, 2011 5:26 pm at 5:26 pm #1122652arcParticipant
If you want a nice quiet restaurant then Al di LA otherwise Pearl river hilton is a good hotel and please bring your GPS.December 31, 2015 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #1122653
Don’t go to Al Di La on a date! its definitely a really nice restaurant, but not a dating spot. too much in the center of things..January 2, 2016 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1122654B1g B0yParticipant
Pull up to the Atrium and ask her if she thinks it would be a good place for your chasuna.January 3, 2016 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1122655LovelymeMember
Go to the Ferris wheel in the palisade mallJanuary 4, 2016 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #1122657
Na id rather the CarouselJanuary 4, 2016 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #1122658
And make sure to do it on a rainy Chol HaMoed!January 5, 2016 4:38 am at 4:38 am #1122659LovelymeMember
Dave and busters, the castle, chuck e cheese any arcadeJanuary 5, 2016 6:11 am at 6:11 am #1122660
Do NOT go to the Dave and Buster’s bar- even for soda- if both people are not 21. My cousin and the guy she was dating were carded (he was 21, she wasn’t) and kicked out of D&B.
(They got married 🙂 )January 5, 2016 6:28 pm at 6:28 pm #1122661
Writersoul: Haha palisades mall on rainy Chol Hamoed!
what about Sport O Rama ice skating? surprised no one said that yet, its prime Monsey.January 5, 2016 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #1122662
Hashemisreading: It’s up there with Bronx Zoo on Wednesday Chol HaMoed…
I just heard someone suggest Escape the Room. I was like, no, really bad idea 🙂
Everyone I know goes into the city, honestly… but Bear Mountain is nice, and so is the park off Exit 1 Palisades by the bridge.
I actually have never seen a yeshivish date at a Monsey restaurant. I’m guessing people go to Teaneck or the city.January 6, 2016 7:55 pm at 7:55 pm #1122663
writersoul: I was at Purple Pear last week and I saw a totally normal date there I was so shocked! then I figured the guy probably lives in Baltimore or something and never saw this thread:)January 6, 2016 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1122664
So weird.January 6, 2016 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1122665fathousewifeParticipant
Park ridge Marriott is a nice lounge sort of date spot. Or drive twenty minutes or so into Westchester to one of the many hotelsJanuary 7, 2016 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #1122666
Honestly, I think at this point in the development of Monsey, most of the population here are doing beshows.January 10, 2016 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #1122667GoldilocksParticipant
Did you ever consider Jill’s Ceramics in Nyack? If it’s not Chanuka or midwinter vacation, there shouldn’t be too many people from Monsey there, and it’s a really cool place.
Nyack also has a great park near the water with a long hiking trail…it’s beautiful!January 12, 2016 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1122668
Yes Jills Ceramics is nice, ive spent many a Sunday there when I was younger.
I have a question about that though. So I go on a date with this guy, (or girl, depending which gender i want to be today) and I make a nice bowl lets say. Then the next week the guy breaks up with me and now I’m stuck with this dumb bowl! its a bit of a waste!
Why make nice projects if ere not engaged yet?May 27, 2020 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1865244YeshivishbuchorParticipant
If its really nice then they should get married. Might be kidie.
