Shhh…My Date with My Roommate’s Husband!

Meet Alon

Location: Meatpacking District, NYC
Origin: Tel Aviv, Israel
Occupation: Bartender/ Singer Songwriter
Hobbies: Disco & Dancing
How We Met: Alon is my roommate’s husband!
Fun Facts: Under the pseudonym Alone, Alon will be producing his first solo album The New Black.

The Date

Alon picked me up at my place around midnight. Adriana, his wife and my roommate, was gone for the weekend so we were in the clear for pure unadulterated mischief. Our evening commenced with a few get-the-party-started cocktails while catching up on our latest and greatest. Being the resourceful guy he is, Alon also took this opportunity to squeeze in some quick father/son bonding time with his son Colle (earning him a few “Who’s Your Daddy” bonus points) and  then we  headed straight for the Newsonic Loft Party.

Sharing a Lollipop is Just Like Kissing!


 Dance This Mess Around

Newsonic was hot, sweaty and swarming with pheromones. Alon was very impressed with the dance scene, so I managed to score myself some “Hipster” bonus points for being in the know and getting us in gratis. Completely decked out in Christmas lights, tropical plants and found objects, Newsonic was the perfect place for us to get our groove on. Party-goers were wet, wild, and ready for just about anything. Alon and I danced late into the night, stayed hydrated on vodka sodas and even shared a lollipop! I must admit that the rest of the details are a bit blurry.

And then the inevitable happened…

I could not believe my eyes but a camera lens doesn’t lie. I took a quick break from the dance floor to refresh my glass only to return to the scene of Alon picking up another woman on our date! They both gave me cheeky grins as I approached, camera in hand, ready to document the most serious dating misdemeanor of all time. Alon explained that it wasn’t how it looked and that they were just being friendly. So, as the saying goes, you are what you eat, and that night I was just a big dumb sucker. They invited me to join in on their dance groove, so I obliged… with lollipop in hand.


BUSTED!

At the scene of the Crime!

The Conclusion

Pros: Alon is taller than me, even in heels. He’s got the beat AND he sparkles!

Cons: He’s my roommate’s husband, and a Pick-Up Artist.

Alon Geva is Disco— but he is also my roommate’s husband therefore I must play the hoe’s before bro’s rule and keep it real.

Would I let Alon take me out and tempt me all over again?

Absolutely, I would follow Alon to the Dead Sea! Next time I’ll suggest Splash.

G’Night Y’all!


Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass

My Date with Danny Chavis

Meet Danny

 Location: The East Village.

Origin: Raleigh, N.C.

Occupation: Rock Star, Guitarist for Apollo Heights.

Hobbies: Women, Illustrating, and Writing about (and eating) Chicken.

How We Met:  Introduced at an art opening in the LES.

Fun Facts: Danny has an identical twin brother named Daniel and is fluent in Japanese.

The Date

Danny invited me to the opening of Black— Bold, Beautiful & Badass which featured four diverse Norwegian artists united through their shared preference for black. The reception was well received as the wine did flow. Danny and I showed off our knowledge of  Asian Art Art History and conversed with the artists, while attending each other’s empty glasses. Blessed with an eye for the exquisite and a natural gravitation to the vanguard, Danny makes the perfect date for an evening with the Arts.

The Dinner

After filling up on art and wine, it was time to head to the East Village for a bite. I suggested Natori, my favorite Japanese spot in the city and to my surprise not only does Danny share the same reverence for Natori as I, but is also good friends with the owner who gave us the VIP treatment (bonus points).  Danny ordered for us  in Japanese (bonus points) and we proceeded to bond over our love of the fried alligator, monkfish liver, and red snapper sashimi, which earned Danny mega “Food Compatibility” points. Although the dates are supposed to be dutch, Danny insisted on being a gentleman and picked up the bill. Who says Chivalry is dead?
