Happy Thursday! Can you guys believe that Valentine’s Day is in just 1 week?I feel like it was just New Year’s Eve and now here we are celebrating Valentine’s Day. Whether you’ve been together for just a few months, or you’re getting ready t get married like Jeff and I or you’ve been together for years and years I’m sure you’re looking to do something fun on Valentine’s Day. It’s always nice to enjoy a steak dinner in a candlelit restaurant with. glass of wine and a bouquet of your favorite flowers and truthfully Jeff and I have been there and done that! It’s always going to be appreciated but this year I’m bringing you some suggestions of fun date night ideas you and your S.O can do!
Take a Trip!
Taking a trip doesn’t mean taking a week off work and grabbing your passport! Living in Orlando, Jeff and I are kind of in the middle of a few different places we can all drive to for a long 4 day weekend! Take Thursday and Friday off from work and get in the car, book a hotel room, a BNB or an AirBNB in a city not to far from home that can be fun, adventurous and a little romantic! I live for the staycations Jeff and I have had in Sarasota just 2 hours away and our many great memories between Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale! There’s nothing more fun the exploring a new city (or a city you love) with someone you love.
Take a Class Together
I keep thinking of how fun it would be to have a date night cooking class or mixology class! I mean think about, if you and your partner enjoy cooking (or eating) and drinking then this is literally the perfect date night idea! Jeff and I have often played with the thought of heading to one of these classes offered in Orlando. I’ve heard f you and your partner can survive in the kitchen together than you can survive anything and Jeff and I cook together at home so why not try it in a gourmet kitchen! I think hands on, interactive dates are definitely some of the best ones!
Paint… with a Twist!
There are many different art studios here in Orlando that offer the Panting with a Twist night! This is the perfect spot for those couples in need of a Valentine’s Date Night and a group of girlfriends looking to celebrate Galentine’s Day together! For those who haven’t heard of Painting with a Twist, you are in an art studio (everyone has their own seat and canvas) and everyone is painting (the same thing) via an instructor and of course there is wine! Again this is a great date night idea that can be done after work one evening and won’t have you out late but still offers a fun and interactive time with alcohol of course!
Wine and/or Chocolate Tasting
So I’m pretty sure you can go for a wine tasting anywhere. Even if there aren’t wineries in your area (we have a few here in Orlando) there are restaurants like Coopers Hawk that allow for a really nice wine tasting experience and you can for go the cliche candlelit dinner and go straight into the tasting. One really great idea for those living in Orlando is a wine tasting and chocolate pairing at the Chocolate Museum and Cafe on International Drive. Of course only available for those 21 years of age and older, the tickets are $17.90 and and it’s sure not be a great and memorable night!
See a Comedy Show
I’m pretty sure everyone enjoys a good laugh and I personally live for great comedy! Especially stand up comedy so why not take your significant other and check out a local comedy club! There’s always the option to grab some food and drinks just before or after the show, you’ll get some great ages and you’ll be supporting local talent!
