Fall is an exciting time of the year because it’s also the coziest, which can only mean one thing: date night! Summer can keep schedules hectic and back-to-school time can be even worse, but now that everything has started to settle back into a routine, it’s about time you and your partner celebrate with the spark that brought you together in the first place.
Who says all romantic dates have to be in the evening? With warm drinks and a shared pastry, a mid-morning coffee date is is a personal and intimate way to spend time with the person you care most about. If you’re looking for coffee paired with fun events, the Reunion Coffee House has bingo on Fridays — and they’re celebrating their first birthday on the 28th!
Live Music Date
Sharing a concert is a wonderful way to spend an evening together, especially if it’s a band that you both love. Or, if you’re looking to expand your cultural horizons, try out free live music around Denver to find new bands that you’ve never heard of! While you’re searching for venues, be sure to check out the new Mission Ballroom in RiNo: With stadium seating in the back and balcony, you’ll have a fantastic view of the stage even if you’re not a front-of-the-crowd type of fan!
Spend a little time with nature by taking a local hike together. No intense experience is necessary on most trails close to Denver, but make sure you research the trail beforehand, take a water bottle, and wear comfortable shoes! One of the fantastic things about hikes is that you can talk as little or as much as you’d like, and the shared experience of seeing the world from a mountaintop summit is a beautiful way to bond with your partner.
A Classic Dinner Date… With Pokémon
Break out of the white tablecloth fancy restaurant date routine and head straight into a Pokémon-inspired pop-up dinner. If you ever wondered what a Pikachu burger tastes like — don’t worry, no *real* Pokémon are harmed for the meal — now is your chance! Trivia, themed cocktails, and interactive games where you can level up your Pokémon are all included in the fun.
No need to dress fancy for this date –– just dust off your lederhosen and get ready to be a little silly together! If you’re thinking that Oktoberfest is only about beer, you couldn’t be more wrong. Sure, delicious brews are a part of the festival, but you’ll also experience live music, keg bowling, a silent disco, and the long dog races. Yes, you read that right: dachshund races. Oktoberfest makes an ideal group date, too, so invite your friends!
No matter what you choose, getting out of the dinner-and-a-movie date routine can re-ignite the spark in your relationship. Then, at the end of the day, you get to come home to the gorgeous community you love: Reunion. Feel free to tag us on Facebook or Instagram @reunionco in your best date selfies!
