A Guide for Stay-At-Home Date Night

While we do provide catering delivery in Newtown, PA, the Slack’s Hoagie Shack team has often had customers order takeout or delivery for a quick dinner, a meal at sporting events, or as the beginning of an impromptu date night in some cases.

While it might be nice to go to a fancy restaurant or out to a movie theater, currently, your only option is to curl up on the couch with your partner after a long week and rent a movie to watch at home. The best part is, it’s pretty easy to put together without sacrificing thoughtfulness.

Here are three easy steps to planning a movie date night at home:

Plan For Dinner

A quick way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach, and that means planning to take care of dinner for your partner. If you’re feeling adventurous, it’s an excellent time to try your hand at a new recipe or to recreate a meal you’d find at a steakhouse. However, it’s essential to take the necessary precautions when cooking something new, because something that may look easy on a video or in the movies could be harder than you anticipated in real life.

Alternatively, ordering takeout from a restaurant you both enjoy can be a low-pressure alternative to attempting to recreate a scene from a cooking video.

Pick the Movie or Activity

What do you do when you finish eating and doing the dishes? Depending on how imaginative you want to get, you could:

  • Plan an indoor camping trip
  • Play a board game
  • Play a card game
  • Attend a virtual concert

Remember that the idea of an at-home date night isn’t to be elaborate and put a lot of pressure on the evening; it’s to share a low-key evening with your partner. You’re only limited to your imagination when thinking of ways to connect, but if the plan is to have a relaxing night in, then nothing beats putting on a great movie.

Don’t Forget The Snacks!

Who wants to go to the theater without snacks?

When planning your stay-at-home date, you can go with the traditional options of candy or chips, but one of the benefits of being at home is that you can access the full range of foods at your fingertips. Try your hand at making some fancy nachos or gourmet popcorn.

Of course, you can also order some of the best wings in Newtown, PA, to enjoy while watching the film; it could be just the experience you both need after a hectic week.
