You Could do Dinner and Movie …Or You Could do THIS

My husband has been traveling quite a bit for work lately. I love that he brings home the bacon, but I can’t say that I look forward to him hanging up his “team” jersey to leave me in mommy mode 24/7 for a week or more at a time.

I have to trade in my evening relaxation routine of watching recorded talk shows alone for bath time and bedtime stories, and by the time I’m done with a full day, I can fall asleep faster than the kids. Don’t get me wrong. I love hanging out with my kids, but at the end of a long week a fun date night is definitely in order!

Date Night Burgin restaurant

My husband and I have our favorite spots around Grand Rapids, but with a city that’s overflowing with great places that offer a cool atmosphere, mouthwatering food, and tasty drinks, it’s only right to check them out!

This mega list of date activities and restaurant ideas from A to Z will spice up your date night adventures in our beautiful city.

4 Interesting Ways to Use this Giant A-Z Treasure Trove

Don’t let our date night list overwhelm you! Here’s some fun ways to use it:

1.)    Write the alphabets, A-Z, on popsicle sticks and place them in a jar upside down. Randomly select a stick to determine what activity and/or restaurant to check out.

2.)    Roll a Scattergories die to decide which letter to try.

3.)    Take turns planning date nights for each other! If something sounds yummy or fun, go for it! Then cross that restaurant or activity off the list so that you are enticed to try new places the next time.

4.)    Schedule a letter to tackle every other week for a year’s worth of dates!
