Memories of hot, sexy Summer nights may be fading fast but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for delicious, sultry date night options. If you pitch us one of these ideas we’re likely to find you irresistible.
1. Go out: It’s standard and admittedly not very adventurous but there are opportunities to shake things up even when you’re out. If you’re going to go out, do something sexy. Turn the volume up on your senses with a pitch black dining experience at O.Noir (620 Church St) or get cozy at an intimate table somewhere like Toronto’s coolest art hotel before roaming the halls checking out art before you spend the night in an artist designed room at The Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St W).
2. Make something together: This is only for a particular kind of couple, one who laughs at each other well and won’t get stressed or angry at the process of cooking together. Want something easy? Make a quick pasta sauce and slurp some spaghetti together. Something harder? Sushi! Want to go out? LCBO does great cooking demos were you cook less than you sample, plus they do wine parings.
3. Order in: Crack a bottle of wine, dim the lights, turn on the fireplace and order in some great Chinese or Thai. Set your coffee table with some candles in crystal tea light holders and lay out a plethora of pillows on the floor. Or forget about takeout and make yourself some fondue. Regardless, the key is the dim lights and abundance of floor pillows. And then whatever happens, happens.
Whatever you do just remember to enjoy being together and eat something dirty delicious. Happy date night!
