Whether you are planning a night out with your husband or wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or friend, dinner is always on the menu. Rather than planning your ordinary old dinner date, why not get adventurous and plan something a little bit more creative?
We love the idea of a progressive dinner. Impress your date by breaking up the date into three parts. Enjoy each course of the meal at a different restaurant, grill or cafe. It will be a refreshing change from their typical sit down dinner and will spark new conversation at each place. Don't get overstressed by the thought of having to plan three mini dates in one. We've got a few pointers for you to make it easy and fun!
Try Something New
You don't have to stick to just one cuisine. Try out a tapas place for appetizers and sip on some sangria. After, move to a cozy Italian restaurant or a fun Asian-fusion eatery for your main course. End your date at a chic little bakery for cake and coffee, although if you are looking for an excuse to snuggle up at home, you can always offer a homemade sweet and some dessert wine. Try this easy Tiramisu in a jar you can prep before your date so it will be ready to enjoy when you return.
Keep it Close
Since you will be hopping from bar to restaurant to bakery, you'll want to think about location. To make this easier, try to find a central location that has all three. Maybe it is the center of a quaint town or a busy block in your city. Although if you are in located in an urban area, it might be fun cab it or take the subway to a few fun places for your meal.
Progressive dinner dates can be fun when you are traveling to new places or on vacation. Try towns and cities you aren't familiar with and make your date a mini adventure!
We also love using mobile apps like Foursquare to find new places and deals in the area of our progressive date. You can share your date and find new things to do together on a great new app specifially designed for couples called Weesh.
The best thing about a progressive dinner date is the chance to be creative. You can take the time to plan each stop on your date or be spontaneous and see where the night takes you!
