10 Birmingham, Alabama COVID Date Ideas

August 20, 2020

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!

 

Write a funny song together about how your 2020 has been and make dinner

Check out: Hello Spoonful, Jamie Oliver or Tasty for some fun recipe ideas!

 

Build a fort, get pizza from the best in the city and watch a familiar movie

Check out: Pizza GM, Davenport’s Pizza, Dave’s Pizza, Slice, and New York Pizza.

 

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
