Date Night In: Fridays We’re In Love

Let us go as far to say that we think a Friday date night in can be even more romantic than Friday night out. Just think: No stop-and-go Uber drivers, no shouting sweet nothings across the table with strangers shoulder-to-shoulder, no awkward moment when you return home and startle your snoozing babysitter…

The weather’s turning cooler (all the cozier) and the gift-giving season is looming (all the more frugal), so consider us your own personal Cyrano de Bergerac. We’ll feed you ideas of how to fan the flames from the comfort of your own home and you’ll get all the kisses, er, credit. Meet our Date Night Taster!

Set the stage for your new tradition with a lineup of surefire pleasures bound to make a beeline to your sweetie’s heart (by way of the stomach). This taster has everything your heart could desire - elegant and subtly-flavored flatbread crackers spread with sweet-and-salty fig + olive and balsamic onion spreads are the perfect match for a juicy red wine that’s name, Bebame (drink me in Spanish), says it all. Carry your wine glasses from the counter to the couch and curl up with a bowl of intoxicatingly fragrant, white truffle-laced popcorn between you (Netflix optional). Then there’s some chocolate, of course, which is known to replicate the feeling of being in love. Seal the deal by sharing a heart-shaped pâte de fruit. Is it getting hot in here?

We’ll let you take it from here.
