Table for two? Say no more! Weekdays revolve around helping your kids with multiplication, carpooling to soccer practice, and making three meals a day. Well, it’s time to take a break and let someone else wait on you! Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent or spend eight hours a day at the office, both mom and dad are deserving of a break. Recharge and let loose by spending an evening out in Addison.
There’s nothing like kicking it back old school at the movie theater. This is the perfect date night if you’re looking for a laidback activity. Throw on your favorite pair of sweatpants and bring your favorite fall blanket to enjoy a classic cinematic experience. AMC Village on the Parkway 9 brings movies to life with their enormous screens, incredible sound system, and signature recliners. No kids means you don’t have to count your cocktails. Order a Moonlight Lemonade (ft. Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey) or a Rainbow Fantasy (ft. Grey Goose Vodka) from MacGuffins Bar for further relaxation. Snacks, appetizers, entrées, and desserts—AMC has it all! Feast on flavorful food and cool down with a refresher while experiencing an absorbing film.
Trade in entertaining your kids for being entertained. Addison Improv is responsible for thousands of deep-belly laughs and boosted moods. Comedic geniuses take the stage several nights a week, so you’re guaranteed to find your type of humor. Some of the featured performers of the season include popular comedians Brian Simpson, Ali Siddiq, Michael Blaustein, and Cristela Alonzo. Cackle the night away and chow down on a range of cuisine. The bacon and blue cheeseburger, Philly cheesesteak, and an 8 oz NY strip are just a few meats on the menu. Make the night memorable by hitting up the souvenir shop to take home a t-shirt or hat!
