I need a date night, you need a date night…we all need a date night. If there was one thing I wasn’t expecting before becoming a parent, it’s just how difficult it is to enjoy a night with the significant other. Even if you have a reliable babysitter, it’s tough to make the commitment—”do we really need to go out to dinner?”

That said, things get a bit easier when you have something above and beyond the typical. That is, if it’s dinner and/or a movie, while fun, it’s a challenge to give in to the additional cost of a sitter, leaving kids for the night, etc. But bigger events? Perhaps your favorite comedian or band will be in town, or there is a huge playoff game you’d love to attend. Even something like “paint and sip” makes committing a bit easier.

So, I’m here to help. Because there are only so many times you can go drink the grapes while confirming the fact that you’re so not an artist, here are 7 activities similar to “paint and sip” for you to try out (and hopefully enjoy).
