Beatles Date Night Idea

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 50 years since The Beatles first stepped foot in America appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show. We recorded the star-studded Grammy Celebration, which gave me a great idea for our Valentine’s dinner this year. I’ve laid it out for you in easy steps to follow, but you can add your own touches as well. For instance you may not like the songs I picked to highlight, but the good news is they have a plethora of titles from which to choose. The point is to make the night memorable for your spouse.

Step 1 – Mail your spouse a letter to invite them to “your house” for dinner and the date. On the back of the envelope write: Enclosed–All My Lovin’ ♥

Step 2 – Plan the menu using song titles as a springboard of idea. I served Strawberry Fields Forever Green Salad, Get Back Baby Back Ribs, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Saute’, Twist and Shout My Honey Pie. (Alternative ideas to consider: Green Apple Pie, I Wanna Hold Your Hand-Tossed Pizza, Blackbird Pot Pie, Don’t Let Me Down Souffle’, Blueberry Fool On The Hill, Glass Onion Soup, The Hippy Hippy Milk Shake, Moonlight Bay Scallops, Sun King Crab Legs)

Step 3 – Decorate using all white linens and plates, if you have them to represent the White Album. Dress in all white too, or buy Beatles T-shirts for both of you to wear.

Step 4 – Set up a Pandora Station or Spotify Station for the Beatles.

Step 5 – Plan what you’ll do after dinner. Give them a Ticket To Ride on a train somewhere, or at a carnival nearby. Watch a Beatles concert on DVD. Play the music from Step 4 and tell your spouse, “I’m Happy Just To Dance With You“.

That’s it! As you can see it doesn’t take much to make an evening at home your spouse is sure to remember for a Long, Long, Long time. Hello, Goodbye, until next time. Enjoy this classic love song…

  1. Oh, I LOVE this! (I’m a big Beatles fan!) You’ve got my creative juices flowing now! My add-ons to your fabulous ideas: Yellow Submarine subs, Revolution ravioli, or even Come Together casserole. How about a Baby, You Can Drive My Car scenic drive in the country? Or a Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds trip to a local planetarium? Ah, you inspire!

    And now I’m going to start playing John, Paul, George, and Ringo…

      J,
      I love you additions! I should have called you when I was planning this one. Who knew we were kindred spirits! You always inspire me!

      Just curious, what’s your favorite Beatles song?

    Hey Debi,
    My recent valentines day present was pretty cool because I got a private chef to come and cook a 3 course meal for my wife as a surprise but after reading your Beatles idea, I now know what I might do next year. I’m not sure how I stumbled on this site but I will surely be coming here again the next time I look to do something romantic for my wife because I must admit, this was a pretty cool idea. I hope you have some more ideas because I plan on coming back. Till next time!
