Sometimes I help my fellow New York humans. Sometimes I hinder?
  1. Just tell them to meet you at the Christopher Street subway station, then find a place to eat from there.
  2. Just send that Tinder connection who's a quasi-celebrity a message that says, "I didn't know who you are, but my friend said to ask for two tickets to your show. Then afterward we can get a drink, maybe. How's that sound?"
  3. Just hang out by the Citibike dock, wait for someone to return a bike, then ask for them to check out another bike for you. You've got 45 minutes to get to Williamsburg, and it's warmish out.
