This time of year, it’s easy to hunker down, stay in, order take out and watch a movie. But it’s important to get out every once in awhile to reconnect with your partner, just the two of you, especially if you have kids. To make it easier, we’ve brainstormed a list of fun date night ideas right here in Shawnee.
Oishi Japanese Cuisine and Bar
Sushi is a perfect fun date night dinner, tailor made for sharing. Oishi gets rave reviews for their atmosphere, presentation, sushi variety and taste. From bento boxes and dumplings to sushi and sashimi boats, there’s an emphasis on the art of Japanese cuisine at Oishi.
What could be more classic than going out for burgers, fries, and a shake with your best guy or girl? Grandstand’s are cooked to order and perfectly seasoned, and the place will take you back to the time of the original drive-ins. The only thing to remember about Grandstand is that its eating area is outside, so plan to check it out in nice weather or to go.
Paulo and Bill
It’s not required to recreate that famous Lady and the Tramp moment, but there’s no denying that there’s just something romantic about Italian food. A hidden gem here in Shawnee, Paulo and Bill features everything from lasagna to filets, Tuscan cobb salads to chocolate fountains.
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a relaxed night out at a dive bar, and Shark’s pool hall certainly fits the bill. Billiards, dart boards, foosball and more make this the perfect spot for a casual evening out with a little friendly competition.
Walls of Clay
Did you know we cater to more than just kids? Unwind and get creative with each other by painting pottery. Whether you get silly or sentimental, we offer a fun bonding experience for all ages.
The couple who sweats together, stays together, as they say. While technically this would be a day date, you’ll feel great trying out a class together at YogaFit and having fun with each other trying new yoga poses. Reward yourself with brunch afterwards at Paulo and Bill.
