It's A Date: Ideas for outings that you'll both enjoy

Tagged:  

Whether you are a new couple, or a married pair trying to maintain the romance, date nights are an important part of any relationship. Check out these ideas for an outing that matches your style.
 
Artsy date
 
Most Kansas Citians know that KC has a happening art scene, but you don’t have to be an artist to enjoy a “hipsterific” art-filled date. 
 
Start the date with a wine-and-cheese picnic on the lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Next, take a stroll through the museum’s sculpture garden. These outdoor pieces are one of the city’s gems, and this art lends itself for a romantic evening stroll.
 
Walk a few blocks west for dinner on the Country Club Plaza at Eden Alley Vegetarian Cafe. This restaurant offers an array of creative vegetarian and gluten-free options. And the dishes are tasty and filling enough to satisfy even the most devout carnivore. 
 
Finish the night with a film at the Tivoli in Westport. The Tivoli features independent and foreign films. After the film you will have plenty to talk about and an abundance of bars within walking distance, such as McCoy's Public House, The Foundry or Harry’s Bar & Tables. 


Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, 4525 Oak St., nelson-atkins.org
Eden Alley Vegetarian Cafe, 707 W. 47th St., edenalley.com
Tivoli Theatre, 4050 Pennsylvania Ave., tivolikc.com
Westport, 39th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, westportkc.com
 
Sporty date
 
A Chiefs game and tailgating make a perfect date for any football fan.
For this date, there a few pre-date activities you should do to ensure you make the most of your game day. First, stop by Kansas Sampler to get some cute Chiefs apparel. Who says sports fans can’t be stylish?
 
Second, you will want to pick up some tailgating supplies. Gates Bar-B-Q seasoning goes well with anything you put on the grill. Or if you and your special someone aren’t handy on the grill, just pick up some Gates barbecue to take with you to the game. 
 
Finally, when game day arrives, get to the stadium in plenty of time to tailgate and make sure you bring plenty of beer.

Foodie date
 
If you or your significant other enjoys the experience of fine dining as much as the taste, make plans to check out Bo Lings Dim Sum for a weekend brunch. 
 
The restaurant offers Dim Sum, i.e. small bite sized portions of various dishes, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at their River Market, Plaza and Overland Park locations. Waiters push carts full of items from table to table and you grab the dishes you want to try. Imagine a fancy buffet that comes directly to your table.
 
Other date locations that foodies should check out include Bluestem, Extra Virgin and The Drop (you absolutely have to try their edible shots).
 
Bo Lings, various locations, bolings.com
Bluestem Restaurant, 900 Westport Road, bluestemkc.com
Extra Virgin, 1900 Main St., extravirginkc.com
The Drop Bar and Bistro, 409 E. 31st St., thedropbar.com
 
Romantic date
 
If you start a date at the French bistro Le Fou Frog, romance will certainly follow. 
 
After dinner check out a show at the beautiful new Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The fall lineup includes a number of ballet and symphony shows, as well as an evening with David Sedaris (for those who find comedic satire romantic).
 
Finish the night with drinks at Manifesto, a low-key, speakeasy-style bar. 
 
Le Fou Frog, 400 E. Fifth St., lefoufrog.com
Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, 1601 Broadway, kauffmancenter.org
Manifesto, 1924 Main St., 816.536.1325

If you really want to surprise your boyfriend with a romantic date you should choose a local that has a ground pool as you will spend a great time together while swimming and drinking champagne in the pool.

I live in New York City and it's one of the most surprising places on earth. I took my fiance on our first date above earth, on top of a skyscraper and she was excited.

I've heard that an amazing place you can go is romantic St Lucia. I would like to go too, my best friend went there and it looks like it worth it.

Just as they had previously made housing shortage, land shortage, as amplified london deliberately broken for now and try to influence macro-control, to give up hope that the central bank monetary tightening, open the gates of funds is unlikely to be successful. United Kingdom's macroeconomic already disrupted the normal order of the property market, and now just have a little effect, how could this close hand it? If, http://www.hlbbt.co.uk/ to the central government began to loose money, there must be two essential premises, one CPI fell to 5.2% or less, and second, the RMB http://www.socalburglaralarms.com/exchange rate stable at a ratio of seven. Do these two points, any attempt to put pressure on the central government's loose monetary policy actions are doomed to failure.
I would like to remind the market that the negative equity on and off for the exact data from the london People's Bank must have reference value. Many America experts, http://www.thedolphingiftshop.com/ their mouths one is the data, as long as I used to, at the exaggerated, even weave lies, is insufficient to hear.

This is just the information I am finding everywhere. Thanks for your blog, I just subscribe your blog. This is a nice blog..

I think that the arty date sounds really good and the first rule that i can give to these persons is to be honest about themselves. Because honesty is the best way to be known by somebody. I think that a lie is good from time to time but you should be careful at what type of lie you deliver to a person you barely know.

I think that when you are going to a first date you should think both at the partner and yourself. Being inventive and original is the best idea but don't forget to be yourself all the time. I got some ideas from Tahquitz for my girlfriend and she really enjoyed it. I knew that she loves video-games and she was very happy that i have listened to her.

I think that the game has changed along with the evolution of internet and social media. People are interacting much different than they did a few years ago and this you can understand from how people communicate. I need to buy a swing set hardware at SwingforSwingSet.com for example and i never met my seller. Understand my point of view?

I think it's most important that the two have common interests. And I'm talking crazy stuff - do they both like disco, or do they both own a cardboard baler? These are the ones that really matter. Then the scenery doesn't matter that much.

If the two like each other, they might as well meet in a place with Wy-Fi, and check out the fused glass art at AMusinGlass.com. The chemistry won't just 'happen' if you're in the right place - it usually takes the right one.

For a special date, it's a must to do shopping. From a fancy dress to a pair a shoes and a stylish hair, all need to look great if you want to make a good impression. For a special date, I even made a special hair cut with tips from the internet. If you want to do the same, you can buy hair cutting scissors at XtremeShears.com . You should try it!

A date idea that everyone can enjoy is a day at the pool. It doesn't matter if it's a public pool, a private one, or in your own back yard, everyone can relax and show some skin too. Just don't bring up how you got swimming pool parts at CommercialPool.com or else she might lose interest rather quickly.

You know your projects stand out of the herd. There is something special about them. It seems to me all of them are really brilliant! Mesa de Plástico

Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.

I prefer an informal date over a classic movie and a dinner at a fancy restaurant date. I prefer wearing accessories from http://www.skydelldesign.com/engagement-rings.html and maybe a chic gadget, like my 3rd gen ipod shuffle, and a small, chic bag.
