Mini Golf & Batting Cages Date at Turtle Cove

You may have noticed how M.I.A. I’ve been around here lately. My second (and last!) year of grad school is in full swing, so I am totally swamped and barely keeping it all together. As such, my posts are going to be a bit more spaced out than in the past, so please just bear with me!

I did, however, use my rare day off, to go to Turtle Cove with my boyfriend to use this Groupon I bought about a month ago. It’s still active and such a good deal, perfect for a quick and easy date night or day off with friends.

The past few months have been so busy, I don’t think I mentioned that I (finally) got my license at the end of August. Considering the fact that I’m a native New Yorker, 24 is a perfectly reasonable age at which to get one’s license. Further, I have the benefit of borrowing my father’s car every now and then when I feel like walking from Castle Hill to Buhre to go get it.  (Sure, I could take the train, but where’s the exercise/not having to pay for Metrocard fare in that?) So, we drove out there, otherwise, it’s not too bad to get to from the City Island bound Bx 29.

Our Groupon included a round of mini-golf and six batting cage coins. We were both comically bad at both, but what was particularly nice was that it was just the two of us. It wasn’t crowded at all, so we could take our time, going way over par in mini-golf and missing as many possible home runs as necessary.  Another bonus was that the coins for the batting cages are worth 25 pitches each. I was expecting maybe five or so, but I really feel like I got my money’s worth.

Should you decide to go on this Bronx Socialite approved date 🙂 , you can top it off with dinner at one of the many awesome restaurants in City Island, just a short distance away. If you go, drop me a comment below to let me know how it went!
