An Egyptian pyramid in South America sounds weird! Duck parade in the lobby of a luxury hotel sounds bizarre! A herd of American Bison roaming in the largest urban park, the Shelby farms seems strange! The Memphians grew thinking about the architectural landmark just like you would feel about the skyscraper arch. The rock n’ roll and the soul music originated on the banks of Mississippi River.
Memphis has several ways to spoil you and your date. Below are some fun date night suggestions in Memphian-style for couples, who forgot what dating is after a few years of marriage. Your dates or anniversary celebration has been restricted to a typical movie and dinner. The soul city has a lot of offer you just need to be creative!
Memphian-style fun date night suggestions
An appetizer crawl from one pub to another
Start with bar fries at the Overton Square and transform your date-night into an ongoing dinner. Pair each course with a preferred drink with flavors that blend well with the food. Move forward to Babalu or Lafayette’s or Bosco’s. You can even crawl on main Street or Cooper-Young.
If you don’t have time for a full-dinner night-date, then a quickie dessert-date at the Muddy’s Bakeshop in Midtown is great. It would be fun settling down with a cupcake and coffee at a table. Pause hectic parental life once in a while and enjoy a mini-date regularly!
Walk down the childhood lanes
Adulating drags and at times you need to break away from the responsibility and turn your date night adventurous. Once in a while, challenge your better half to a game of Mario kart battle. The couch, screen, and console in the living room should have no demanding kids….just you and your date!
If the weather allows then play putt-putt golf at Gold and Games. Even go race-karts and win a prize. Cosmic bowling is another way to change the pace of fun. Billy Hardwick is a great bowling place offering plenty of options.
Cheer for the home team
It doesn’t matter if you cheer for the Grizz, the Tigers, the Riverkings, the Redbirds, or a high school Alma. Choose a game, check the schedule, buy tickets and make a date. Dress in team colors, enjoy a treat of BBQ nachos and popcorn as well as wave your foam finger, just like old days!
Together cooking is enjoyable. Cooking classes are practical date night suggestions. Salud Cooking Classes helps to get you to cook in your kitchen teaching knife skills to meatball making.
Nature Walk together
The majority of the date ideas are surrounded by food. To address foodie date nights, you need to consider nature dates, which are great for your body. There are several outdoor options, where you can eliminate the dependency of a car.
At the Shelby farms, you can walk, bike or run the Greenline or play disc golf or do zip-line challenge or walk your dogs around the dog park. There is Overton Park, Rainbow Lake, and Shelby Forest, where you can go hiking, biking, and fishing.
Share moments with your better half and enjoy the Soul City offerings!
