A Date Night at the Theatre

It can be easy to get in a rut when it comes to date night.  We can easily find ourselves going to the same restaurant or seeing yet another movie, because that’s what we’ve always done and it doesn’t take much thought or planning.

There are more than 400 performances annually, including Broadway musicals, dance companies, popular entertainers, concerts, and more!

Outdoor Movies [plus tips + tricks]

I don’t know what it is about the thrill of watching a flick in the great outdoors — something about it is so strange, but so fun at the same time.

Summer seems to be the perfect opportunity to watch a movie in a park, and although we’ve told you about big-time companies like Eat See Hear or Street Food Cinema that put on these events, there are quite a few local productions, as well.  Catch them before summer is over!

[hint: movies typically start after dark (duh) but plan on showing up a little early …
