Every Non-Boring Date-Night Idea That Isn’t Dinner and a Movie
Hey, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with defaulting to what you know you can agree on (hello there, Mia’s brisket tacos). But sometimes in relationships you have to think outside the box if you want to keep things fresh. Here are nine non-boring ways to spend an evening with your better half.
Make a Cozy Winter Dinner in a Sur La Table Cooking Class
Instead of sitting across from each other at dinner, try casually bumping into each other while you caramelize Brussels sprouts or grazing each other’s hands while rolling out the crust for your chicken potpie. Yeah, cooking comfort food has never been sexier.
Pair Wine and Cheese at Scardello Artisan Cheese
Who needs a whole meal when you can just flirt over every kind of delicious cheese there is? Pair them with great wine (included in the cost of the class) and this will go down in the history of best dates ever. But hurry, these classes sell out fast.
Or Pair Chocolate and Wine at Chocolate Secrets
If cheese doesn’t do it for you (you’re dead to us), maybe chocolate will. At Chocolate Secrets, your pairings are arranged by a sommelier and chocolate expert who will blow your mind with how much more amazing your two favorite treats are when they’re put together…kinda like you and your S.O.
Get Sporty at Top Golf
Food? Check. Drinks? Check. Something to keep you busy as you subtly figure out if he wants kids? Check. There’s golf games for all levels, so even if you’re both newbies (or experts, or a combo of either), you’ll find a game you can both enjoy while bobbing your heads to the music.
Ice-Skate at The Galleria
It doesn’t have to be the holidays to take a few romantic laps around the rink. While the two of you might not have that Kristi Yamaguchi grace just yet, falling on the ice together is its own kind of adorableness.
See a Show at the AT&T Performing Arts Center
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Madame Butterfly... Get cultured while you fall in love. It’s a win-win.
Take in a Concert at The Granada
Get your signature sway greased up and ready to rock. This iconic music venue is a date-night mecca (we have our eyes on you, Neil Fest). And we know we said we’d tell you about things besides dinner and a movie, but if you see a show here, you are near Wayward Sons. Just FYI.
Helicopter Ride at Sunset
No, you don’t have to be on The Bachelor to score a helicopter date. Plenty of companies offer private rides around Dallas, including one that will take you on a wine tour in style. But we have to say, if you’re going for romantic, a sunset ride is the way to our heart.
