We came across this article from Redbook on 50 date night ideas and decided to share it with our blog readers. They have some great ideas to change up your standard dinner or movie dates! With the weather warming up, they have a lot of great ideas to get out and do something fun and unique.
We took a look at their list and picked our Top 5:
1.) Venture Into The Kitchen: "We love Taco Tuesday; we try different main meats and experiment with flavors," says Chicagoan Erin G., 29. "It sounds simple, and we've got the prep-work down to a science, but because we don't have to concentrate on the task at hand, we can really enjoy being with each other."
2.) Sign Up For A Mud Run or Color Run: Dirt — and lots of it — is the pervading theme at these non-competitive fun runs spouting up around the country. They often require you to work in tandem, which is an awesome way to bond, and the finish-line sometimes stocks celebratory beer tents for thirsty participants. To find one in your area, log on to Active.com.
3.) See An Improv Show : Still mourning the end of 30 Rock? Ease the pain by grabbing tickets to a local improv show, where you may catch next decade's Tina Fey, Aziz Ansari, or Amy Poehler before they hit it big. Not only is attending these shows generally way cheaper than buying seats for "traditional" theater, the improvisers often ask for audience participation — and sell beer in the back.
4.) Document The Night: Head to the pub around the corner, hit the
coffee bar for dessert, or just grab takeout — but be sure to take plenty of
fun, artsy or silly Instagram pictures. Not only will it create an awesome
memory, but studies have shown that looking at photos of your significant other
can make you feel even more connected to them, so find a favorite and print it
5.) Play Strangers In Your Own Town: In Roman Holiday, Audrey Hepburn plays a princess in disguise who ends up spending her day with a sexy journalist (Gregory Peck) who knows who she is, but doesn't reveal it so he can get a scoop. While role-playing is optional, spending an afternoon exploring a nearby city (having lunch at a cool bistro you've never been to because it's full of tourists, taking a walking tour of a local cemetery, or having your picture taken together by a town landmark) is a great way to see your world — and each other — in a whole new light.
