Movie nights out on the patio of Ida Claire, live band karaoke at Sidecar Social, enjoying the afternoon at Addison Circle Park, making your way through a corn maze or sipping on a delicious glass of wine at Antonio Ristorante – pretty magical, right? These are just some of the date night ideas we have for you in this edition of Date Night Ideas.
So, let’s get started!
The weather is nice and cool and so a nice stroll along any of Addison’s parks can be a great way to hang out with that special someone. Walking along the trails, talking, holding hands and just enjoying each other’s company can be so relaxing. No doubt it has been a stressful year, but a stroll outdoors is a simple way that you can spend time with someone without distractions. Take a walk around White Rock Creek Trail and enjoy the beautiful views and peaceful setting.
Pack a small basket with some snacks or grab dinner curbside from one of the amazing restaurants here in Addison. Stop along one of the trail benches for a special picnic. Check out the different Addison parks on their website.
If you’re missing that tasty State Fair food, Ida Claire has you covered! For a limited time, Ida Claire is offering a special State Fair-themed to-go kit. Call them and ask for the Ida Claire Southern Fare Kit. It includes Andouille sausage corn dogs, grilled corn, beignet and red beans and rice. For dessert, order the peach cobbler waffle cones with bourbon buttercream!
If you prefer, head to Antonio Ristorante after a stroll through Addison Circle Park and enjoy a delicious dinner or a glass of wine on their patio. Antonio’s serves authentic Italian cuisine made from the freshest ingredients and boasts an extensive wine list. Their patio is absolutely beautiful and the perfect setting for a quiet date night.
Ida Claire has been hosting a movie night every Thursday on their patio. Enjoy a delicious cocktail and appetizers as you watch some favorite throwback movies. Some of the upcoming movies include Mean Girls, Space Jam, The Greatest Showman, The Goonies, and Hocus Pocus. Call them at 214-377-8227 or email them to make your reservation today.
