The Second Hardest Date to Create

After Valentine’s Day is New Years Eve on the list of hardest dates to create.  Fear not.  We are here to help.

The most fun I ever had on a New Year’s Eve was when I wasn’t herding cats in a big group.  It was me and my date at an open bar party at Maggiano’s.  No one else to worry about or manage or babysit.  So my tip for this date: Just plan something for you and your better half that suits both of your personalities and don’t try to go to everything or make a big group ordeal of it.

I think a night time view of the city would be so romantic from the new Ferris wheel – SkyView.  Couple that with a yummy dinner before and you have yourself a night.  Park Bar is walking distance and has amazing food and a great selection of drinks.  I’d recommend the Hot Mess or Scotsdale Chicken – both VERY tasty!

Tip:  SkyView is open until 1:00 a.m. for New Years Eve only so you could go after dinner just keep in mind that cabs are hard to come by this night.

Looking for an out-of-the-box meal with International flare?  Try the Iberian Pig (Spanish cuisine) in Decatur or Cardamom Hill (Indian fare) on Northside Dr.  Check out this write up on Cardamom in The Globe and Mail.

The two most important things to remember when planning this evening:  make reservations and don’t drink and drive.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Dinner and a Show

ScoutMob (a personal favorite when it comes to deal sites) is running a deal for Plaza Theater tickets for one of two shows:  “Gremlins” or “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation”.  The ticket is only valid for the shows on 12/11.

Need dinner before or after?  Atkins Park just two blocks north for yummy burgers or step it up a notch and head south on Highland Ave to Babette’s Cafe.

Side note:  Babette’s has a fantastic brunch if you are searching from something for that but you must make reservations.
