Do you ever want to stop the world, get off, and enjoy some time with your significant other? In today’s fast pace life with high pressure jobs, one needs to take time to slow down and smell the proverbial roses. As the holiday season heightens into a frenzy, plan ahead for a date night. Camden offers lots of choices for some special together time. So, here are some suggestions for that date night. Some are very familiar, others not so much!
Familiar Date Night Suggestions
It is always nice to go out to dinner. Since someone else is doing the “dirty work”, there is more focused together time. According to the Rock Coast Food Guide, the midcoast of Maine has more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in America. Check out one of these restaurants for your romantic date night dinner.
The Camden Opera House offers all kinds of entertainment for date nights. The Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) screens movies on a monthly basis. There are all kinds of musical genre performances from local musicians as well as internationally known artists. Check out the calendar for upcoming events.
Do you prefer to be more involved in the entertainment? Then Karaoke at Cuzzy’s Restaurant might be your ideal date night.
Alternative Date Night Suggestions
If in addition to singing, you or your sweetie enjoy writing songs, then the Camden Public Library’s songwriter session may be the perfect break from the ordinary. The session meets on the last Thursday of every month. The group welcomes all levels of songwriters.
If you are both musically inclined, there are music jam sessions, open mic nights, and live music many nights of the week in cafes throughout the midcoast. Consult the Knox Village Soup calendar to find out days, times and places.
If your break from everyday life is immersion in literature, then your perfect date night might be attending a poetry reading or a presentation/book signing. It is easy find all kinds of readings either in the Library’s calendar or The Free Press.
Cozy Date Night Suggestions
The above suggestions may be great, but sometimes even these require more energy than you are interested in expending. Sometimes the best cozy date night is curling up with your favorite someone and watching a movie at home.
Sometimes, trying to watch that movie at home is not possible due to competing priorities: laundry, chores, house repairs etc. Why not leave your house but still enjoy serious cuddle time? Try staying at a bed and breakfast a short distance away.
Make your stay even cozier by reserving a room with a Victorian Soaking tub or jetted tub
And/or a gas stove.
Doesn’t that look inviting?
