Life has been quite crazy lately, so I decided to do the “B” date night in our Alphabet Dates series. (The original plan was to alternate the planning of Alphabet Dates throughout the year, and it was Tom’s turn). However, this is real life – pressures increase and difficulties arise requiring us to adjust our expectations and implement a change of plans. I was happy to bless (that’s a B too!) Tom with a date night just for him.
I recently heard about the new Pixar movie, UP, involving a man who worked as a Balloon vendor. In fact we posted about it HERE. So, I took Tom to a matinee at Altamonte 18, and afterwards we enjoyed a great Burger at the Bowling alley and played three games together. It was a great evening, and we highly recommend the movie. But you might want to take some tissues – we were both Bawling by the end.
NOTE: Our Alphabet Dates have evolved to become more detailed allowing our readers to pick and choose from the list provided. So, here are more ideas for the Letter “B”: (updated July 29, 2009)
Bingo – you can find a hall hosting or play your own game at home. We suggest the latter – you can make up your own rules! 🙂
Bocce Ball – this is an Italian yard game that’s lots of fun. Sets are available at any sports store.
Boating – check out a local marina for boat rentals.
Biking – if you don’t have your own, ask a friend to borrow theirs for an afternoon. Then, hit a local biking trail.
Balloon ride – plan a hot-air balloon ride.
Bungee jumping – this one doesn’t sound romantic at all to me (Debi), but I post it for the more adventurous.
Blind Man’s Bluff – typically a child’s game, but you can improvise.
Bubbalou’s Bodacious BBQ – or any BBQ restaurant of your choice.
Bucca di Beppo – family style Italian food!
Brazilian Steak House – this can be pricey, but fo a special occasion meal it’s worth a visit. If you join Texas de Brazil’s website they offer lots of BOGO deals.
Burgers and Beans – grilled at home with a candle light dinner in your Backyard.
House of Blues Sunday Brunch – or try brunch at any other restaurant you enjoy.
“B” Special Touches:
Bubble Bath for two
Flowers: Bouganvillea, Babies Breath
Bath and Body Works
Bear – a cuddly teddy bear is always romantic
Barefoot on the Beach – spend an afternoon or evening walking and talking,
