Vanessa’s Team Pick:
Are you in love with Autostraddle’s very own Gabrielle Rivera? That’s a rhetorical question because duh. Gabby writes poetry and gives the best life advice and finds amazing photos of Beyoncé. She’s honest and kind and respectful. She’s smooth and soulful and perfect. Did I mention she is dapper as fuck? Basically Gabby is the best and I assume you all want to date her. Lucky for you, now you can! I mean, not that you couldn’t before…but this time it’s pretty official.
I am pleased to announce that Gabby is in Time Out New York’s January roundup of single women seeking women in NYC, and that means that not only do we get to hear her idea of a perfect date, but you actually have the opportunity to go on a date with her. I guess you have to live in New York for this to apply to you, but honestly if you wanted to fly in from a faraway destination I wouldn’t blame you. So what’s Gabby’s idea of a perfect date? Here’s what she told Time Out:
We’d ride bikes around Governors Island, flop down on the lawn for a picnic and grab some Blue Marble ice cream, then take the ferry back to the city and part ways to freshen up. We’d meet up later in Morningside Heights, eat at Toast and drink some craft beer. We’d walk it off along Broadway and if it was a Friday, head down to Hot Rabbit to dance our asses off. Finally we’d part ways and walk off tired and thinking about each other.
