Can’t get enough light this winter? Catch the Staten Island Ferry with your beloved for a romantic romp.

DO: Take a Dreamy Stroll Through the NYC Winter Lantern Festival

This is your last chance to experience the fest’s eight acres of whimsical lights. And it’s going to be warm enough to walk around in a lighter winter coat this weekend! Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace

EAT: Some ’Za at Seppe Pizza Bar

Lyft your way over to this laid-back pizzeria and split a spicy honey pie, baked clams, and stuffed artichokes. Yes, you will eat all of that delicious food. It’s hibernating season, after all. 3 Navy Pier Court

DRINK: “Unforgettable Beer” at Flagship Brewing

Before calling it a night, crack open a few cold ones and tipsily gaze into each other’s eyes underneath the small-batch taproom’s gleaming twinkle lights. 40 Minthorne Street
