Was thinking 'ino for tonight, but want to sit outside

If 'ino was your first choice (as it should be) why not take a short trip to 'inoteca? Wider selection on the menu and it has sidewalk seating. Even if you don't get a table outside, it's an open dining area with the doors open. Not near W4 but not too far away.

A Good Ol' Soda Fountain for a Good Ol' Banana Split

The Soda Shop on Chambers St. Never had a banana split there but the egg creams are pretty good. Not a fancy place just a throwback to old NY.

Fly Me to Some Rum, Mon!

I am assuming you don't mean light or flavored rums but premium sipping rums.

I haven't come across a rum flight yet except for special rum tasting events. If you do want an extensive list of rums to choose from, Brandy Library is the best spot that I know of. Here's a link of their selection:

Curiously, they have flights of SIngle Malts and other spirits but not Rum. The Doorley's is fantastic IMHO in the lesser price range and everything I've had from Guyana has been terrific.
