Not too long ago, the Mister and I got to check out Playhouse Square up in Cleveland to see the production of “The Humans.” If you haven’t done the theater as a date, it should go on your list, and I am going to tell you why and how to do it.
So… here’s a little bit on how we ended up doing this in the first place. I got tickets for my birthday to go see “The Humans” from two of my close friends. It was a matinee, which was great because then you can have dinner and extend the date. Our tickets came with a parking garage pass, which is a must when you go because the garages can fill up fast, especially if there are other area events that day. This guarantees you a parking space.
Going to the theater is a chance to get fancy for the sake of getting fancy. When the Mister and I were first dating, he used to put on a suit and do this whole James Bond thing. It sounds soooo cliche, but I LOVED IT! Three kids and several years later, he doesn’t do that so much. I miss it, and I really like to find excuses to both of us dressing up. (Just a note to those of you needing some ideas for intimacy, this definitely can be a turn on and cross over into the bedroom. Just saying.)
Playhouse Square is fairly easy to navigate, and we found where we needed to go in no time. You don’t have to live in New York City to see a Broadway production. You can find many productions that were on Broadway in bigger cities. Check your closest theater’s website to find shows you want to see.
I absolutely loved the architecture of the theater. It added a glamorous and romantic feel to the day. The show was amazing and very relate-able as a millennial. The Mister summed it up as depressing and humorous at the same time!
After the show, we decided to get something to eat while waiting for the parking garage to empty out. It was practical, and there are many places within walking distance. We found this cute little place called PHuel Cafe. Recently, I found out that I have some food allergies, and it has made dining out difficult. This place was like heaven for me! The food is tasty, not too pricey, and allergy friendly. It was easy to find gluten-free and dairy free options. I even got to have dessert! We definitely will be coming back there over the summer!
This is one of those dates that I will not only remember for a long time to come, but it is also something we want to do again. If you are on a budget and looking to do this, sometimes theaters have cheaper prices for seats that are farther back or special deals on matinees and shows they want to fill. Also, Groupon sometimes features different discounts on shows. Make sure you check out what restaurants are available in the area. This is becoming increasingly important for us as we navigate food allergies. Do you know how frustrating it is to start running down the list of options and having to cross off each one? It is time consuming too. So, check your area, be prepared.
Also just go have fun, relax, live it up, enjoy yourself. This can be a really fun time for you and someone you love or want to get to know better. Also…seriously play up on turn ons! It really takes your date nights to a totally different level!
If you are in the Cleveland area, check out Playhouse Square and Phuel Cafe. I hope you enjoyed my date night for this week, and if you did, be sure to share it and pin it for future use!
