Unique Birthday Ideas

My girlfriend has her 30th birthday coming up next week. We go out for enough restaurant-related nights out regularly. So I'm looking for some unique and different ideas for us two to celebrate her birthday in NYC.

It would be great to do something special for her which will catch her by surprise. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. And if you do suggest out-of-the-box restaurants, French food and champagne are her faves.

Thanks a lot in advance for any suggestions

Wow.. those are some great suggestions already. Thank you so much! Didn't even know any of that stuff existed and will definitely be signing up for atleast 3 of those.

Unfortunately they mostly take place over the weekend (Fri/Sat) and her birthday falls mid-week. All suggestions are welcomed :D

Would she like a burlesque show? The Slipper Room has one on Wednesdays:


Have you been to Flute? If not, it's a champagne bar, so she might like that:

On my daughter's B'day I tookher and some friends to Tagine's a nice Mideastern restaurant with bellydancing. They also prepared a nice cake for her.(It is in a dumpy neighborhood, but inside its cozy and the food is good.


On the other hand, When I had my Big 4-0 I went to
