Just because we’re all stuck at home doesn’t mean we have to give up on date nights. It’s time to use some creativity, mix up the nightly routine, and recreate your own Burnsville-inspired date night at home. Here are some ideas of how you can have a nice stay at home date with your loved one.
We are sick of cooking and miss nice restaurant meals out with our significant others. We bet you are too, so we want to try to give you the best of both worlds. Here is a recipe for seared scallops with garlic basil butter that you can pretend you ordered off one of your favorite Burnsville restaurant’s menus. The best part is that it only takes 10 minutes to prepare so you’ll barely be doing any cooking! We suggest setting up a table to eat outside and starting a bonfire. It will feel like patio season date nights are back again!
Is your idea of a great date is doing something creative with your loved one? If so, set up your own paint and sip night at home. Pick up your favorite bottle of wine and grab an art kit from Cheers Pablo, then tune into the online class and let your masterpieces come to life. There are several pictures to choose from on their calendar, and the kits come with everything you need to complete a beautiful painting at your kitchen table!
Spice up a simple home date by learning to salsa! If you’re new to the salsa, learning at home will be a great way to pick up this new skill with no pressure. If you have experience, now is a great time to practice so you can show off your moves at the Mediterranean Cruise Café salsa nights when this is all over. For now, grab your partner and spin them around the living room.
No date night is complete without dessert, and it’s hard to go wrong with chocolate! Order some delicious chocolatey treats from the Droolin’ Moose for pick up at the store! P.S. Your date night dessert purchase will give those fighting this COVID-19 crisis on the front lines a sweet treat too, as Droolin’ Moose is donating 10% of all chocolate sold to various caregiving organizations in Minnesota.
All of these are fun ways to bond with your partner at home. Don’t forget to tag your recreated Burnsville date photos with #MyBurnsville for the chance to be featured on our social channels. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more Burnsville updates.
