Subject: just a question

Can you recommend some places that people often go to alone? I hate the pack mentality of going to bars in droves, or needing a partner to dine with, so I’m looking for some ideas of places to go solo.



Paint alone
Let your inner Jackson Pollock run free by contributing to a massive art installation by Greenpoint- based artist Tim Kelly, titled Puzzle Project. It’s made of interlocking, individually designed pieces; pick up your own blank one from the Reaves Gallery (526 W 26th St between Tenth and Eleventh Aves; 646-734-9072, timkellyartist.com; Thur–Sat, noon–6pm; $10), go wild with Crayolas, then return it. “There are no rules, just make it meaningful to you,” says Kelly. The entire thing—5,000 pieces—will be displayed next year.
