Offbeat date ideas for young people in NYC this weekend?

I'm visiting a ladyfriend in NYC this Friday/Saturday, and am looking for some offbeat, inexpensive date ideas, primarily within Manhattan and accessible parts of Brooklyn, but possibly anywhere the MTA will go. I'll be with her both days, so suggestions from the full gamut of possibilities are encouraged.
Shows, happenings, and parties in the vein of Nonsense NYC are ideal.
We're already planning on going to a museum (I believe the Whitney), but if there are any relatively lesser known museums that are worth checking out, that would be helpful to have in mind as well.
And food! Suggestions for inexpensive places (max $20/plate for dinner) with some ambience and great food (vegetarian, preferable) would be very much appreciated.
Other ideas I've been thinking about: weird places that might impress a person who already lives in the city, places to people watch, beautiful parks, places outside of the city that we could go, etc...
Oh, and while she is over 21, I am not, so if a suggestion is 21+ age limited, mark it as such. Really, any ideas will help. I'm not trying to create a schedule, but I would like to have enough ideas and options in mind to keep things interesting at any point over the weekend.
