What: When’s the last time you wore a nice suit? When’s the last time you put on a red lipstick? If your answer is anytime longer than three weeks ago, it may be time for a date night. The nice thing about an in-house date night is that you don’t even have to worry about bringing a coat or getting your outfit wet. If you want some fancy foods without the hassle of cooking, you can even support a local business and order in.

Date: Any day
Time: Any time
Location: Anywhere (indoors or distanced)
