Date Night Is… happening any time but at night

Date Night Is… happening any time but at night

In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re firmly invested in the idea of date night (heck, we name the company after it!). But we’re also firm believers that “date night” is a term that’s best interpreted loosely and with a generous dose of fun on top.
Believe us, we totally get it. We’re busy too, and sometimes an evening out just isn’t in the cards. That doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a date together. In fact, it’s the perfect excuse to change things up and schedule your date at a completely off-the wall time. Here’s five date ideas that you can pull off during the day without disrupting your busy schedules (too much).
The Breakfast Date
Let’s face it, once you’ve got a job “breakfast” is generally something along the lines of a slice of toast and a cup of coffee on your way out the door at home or on the way into the office. It’s not fun, it’s certainly not healthy, it’s just part of the routine. But this week is going to be different. Find a morning when the two of you can manage to get out the door an hour early (or better yet, show up to work an hour late!).
Do. Not. Sleep. In.
Get yourselves up and out the door as usual, and meet up at your favorite breakfast joint. Don’t worry about cooking at home, this is a morning to enjoy one another’s company without the pressure of cooking and dishes. Sip your coffee slowly. Better yet, order a bloody mary – no one’s going to turn you in! Ignore your afternoon meeting. Force yourselves to ignore the rest of the world for an hour and truly enjoy one another’s company as though it’s a Saturday morning and you don’t have a care in the world. You’ll be amazed how refreshed you feel when you head into work. [Image below from Posh24.com]
The Coffee Date
Can’t pull off the time for a full breakfast stop? No worries, that’s what coffee shops are for. And let’s face it, there really is a Starbucks on every corner nowadays. Grab your his-and-hers venti double-skinny non-fat mocha-latte-chino and a muffin, like usual. But this time, sit down – together.
And don’t leave until you’ve finished your coffee.
The Lunch Date
What’s better than escaping the office in the middle of a chaotic day to enjoy an indulgent lunch? Find your favorite restaurant – or somewhere entirely new – and allow yourself a good hour and a half to sit and savor a delicious meal. Need help finding a spot? Try searching foursquare.
Of course, there are a couple of ways to spice up a lunch date as well, if you’re so inclined. For instance, head out for a little shopping together. But remember, this is a date. Save your grocery list for another time, and think about a stop or two that will help build…anticipation. (Or just skip the shopping entirely, and stop off at home for “dessert.”)
The Happy Hour Date
After-work happy hours are traditionally filled with drunken co-workers “blowing off steam” buy guzzling one too many beers. Break tradition by making it an occasion for two. Pick a place where you two won’t run into office-mates – a place where the happy hour specials don’t have anything to do with draft beer or well drinks. A speakeasy is the perfect place to hide out and let the day wash away for an hour or two.
Get “Sick”  sick-couple
Four little words will trump just about any workplace questioning, “I’m not feeling well.” They’re your key to a true escape for a daytime date. The problem, however, is that this excuse comes with a bit of a catch… You can’t very well be seen out cavorting with your partner on a day when you’re “sick.” Plan carefully to avoid being seen by a friend of a friend. Or hole-up at home and pretend that you’re in the swankiest hotel around. (Better yet, just grab a room at the swankiest hotel around!)
