Going out to dinner can be fine and dandy, but sometimes you want to do something new when you are going out for a date night. So here are some unique date night ideas that you and your significant other are sure to love.
Craft beer or wine tasting – There are an increasing amount of wineries and growler shops opening up all over the place. Pop in for a tasting and you can spend the evening sampling new wines or craft beers; most places also teach you about different flavor notes and techniques that make for great conversation.
Competitive laser tag and bowling – My husband and I love going to Main Event here in Atlanta to feed our competitive side with bowling and laser tag. We enjoy dinner and drinks right at the lane while we bowl a set. Then afterward we hit the laser tag floor to sweat it out, capture the flag style. We also hog the air hockey and Mario Kart arcade games because we both are so good at them. He still can’t beat me at air hockey, though, well actually, not many people can.
Star gazing – Load up the truck bed with pillows and blankets and find a secluded area away from the city streetlights. You can admire the dazzling sights of our Milky Way.
History stroll – Visit your local museum or art gallery for an evening of history and culture. Here in Atlanta, our museums host some great unique events for adults after hours the involve drink specials.
Ice skating – You have a small window to go to an outdoor ice skating rink (generally November – February) but there are indoor ice rinks also. But if you can’t find either, hit the roller skating rink and bring back some middle school memories of doing the backward strut skate.
Dinner during a movie – Dinner and then a movie is so last year. Check out some of the upgraded theaters that offer dinner and drinks during your movie! Some theaters have built one theater that has the reclining chairs and waiters that come to you at the push of a button.
Whatever you decide, enjoy each other over some great conversation. One of my favorite things to do is sit in a coffee shop couch and just talk.
