I know it’s been a weird season, and “normal” dates went out the window back in March. So life has had to readjust, including how you spend time together as a couple. Here are some fun ideas to enjoy each other’s company in the Magic City of Birmingham!
Build a fort, get pizza from the best in the city and watch a familiar movie
Go to Barnes and Noble and read on the floor
Check out: Little Professor Bookshop, Church Street Coffee and Books and 2nd & Charles.
Visit Pepper Place Market on a Saturday for some social interaction and to support local businesses
Check out Pepper Place to find out which vendors will be there!
Try a new style of food and eat on a deck, in a park or somewhere that’s not a table
Get coffee from a local place and walk through Crestline or Mountain Brook
Watch a concert on TV and pretend like you’re in attendance. Turn the lights off, put glow sticks on and dance around the living room.
Check out: Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, One Direction (LOL at these suggestions!).
Go hiking at one of Birmingham’s nature preserves
Check out, Ruffner Mountain, Oak Mountain State Park, Moss Rock Preserve, Red Mountain Park and Cheaha State Park.
Make a charcuterie board of random childhood finger foods that you loved
If you’re in the mood for English food… go to the ethnic aisle in Publix and enjoy!
Create a chips + salsa taste test from four different restaurants
I hope this fun list facilitates some great memories as you go on dates. Don’t be afraid to get creative in order to spend time together!
