If your week has been kind of a downer, how about a little laughter to draw you out of the dumps? That laughter can be inspired by the talented and sometimes off-the-map funny observations from the comedians who take the stage at Goodnight's Comedy Club.
From the great selection at the bar to the wide variety on the menu, you'll smile at the reasonable prices but howl with laughter at the first-class talent on stage. The comedy venue has been rated as one of the top ten comedy clubs in America, so that's another reason to enjoy a romantic date at Goodnight's for a great night of fun and laughter.
Begin your evening with dinner, but why let that take up all your time? Enjoy an amazingly tasty pizza at the Mellow Mushroom.
The unmatched menu is perfectly balanced by the restaurant's low-key atmosphere, which will set the relaxed mood for the evening's festivities. The great thing about grabbing a bite at the Mellow Mushroom is that you'll get a hearty meal in a reasonable amount of time and that will leave you with the rest of the evening to take in a show or take a romantic stroll and continue your night filled with quality time and lots of romantic opportunities.
Sure, rock shows are great, but why not opt for the real classics as performed by the North Carolina Symphony?
You and your date will not only enjoy dressing up and taking in a romantic evening of great music performed by one of the country's first state-funded symphonies, but also you will be able to have conversations during intermission and you won't have to yell to hear one another or worry about spilling beer on your shoes! It'll be a classy evening of classics.
How about getting a little exercise together while holding hands the whole time? The best idea for both of those things to happen is to go for a spin around the Raleigh Ice Plex on your next romantic date.
It doesn't matter what the weather is doing outside, there's always an alluring chill on the ice in this impressive and modern rink. Another great attribute is that even though you're enjoying that special time with your new skating partner, the Raleigh Ice Plex maintains its stellar ten-year reputation as an excellent venue for family fun and great first dates, too!
Instead of doing the traditional evening date, why not meet for a delicious brunch on Sunday morning before spending a romantic afternoon together? An excellent choice for brunch would be Tir na nOg Irish Pub and Restaurant.
While the establishment is still one of the best night spots in town, its cavernous layout is just as comfortable in the bright Sunday morning light. The brunch menu is full of delicious handcrafted foods like omelets, waffles, and desserts that have made the weekly buffet an award winner with several local and regional publications. So make plans to have Sunday brunch at Tir na Nog Irish Pub and you and your date can take it from there.
Instead of the pressure of a big dinner, why not enjoy a couple of choice glasses of wine on a romantic date at the West End Wine Bar?
Classy, relaxed, and memorable, this impressive wine bar features a delectable menu filled with pre-dinner tapas, scrumptious appetizers and light meals. There's also great live music, a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere, and the best wine selection in the city. But if your date would rather have a beer, there is also a unique selection of microbrews that will stay in line with the evening's out-of-the-ordinary charm.
