Remember the time when "Date Night" meant dinner and a show? Couples would flock to restaurants for a bite to eat, and then to the theatre for some entertainment. Have we lost this idea? It seems that more and more "date night" refers to much looser plans, perhaps dinner in, maybe out, perhaps a party or gathering with friends is even considered a date. Now, I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with this at all, I have had wonderful date nights including a wide array of activities, however I do think that there is something to be said for the tradition. That said, I have some good news for you! The wonderful folks over at ArtsBoston want to bring back the age old date!
ArtsBoston has joined forces with the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau to offer pretty incredible discounts on shows around town in conjunction with the ever popular Restaurant Week. So we all know Restaurant Week is the bi-annual event where some of the most popular restaurants in Boston, and the surrounding areas, offer a special three course prix fixe menu for just $33.10 for dinner ($20.10 for lunch). This event takes center stage throughout the city for the two weeks that it is held, as the people of Massachusetts lunge at the opportunity to catch a deal at some great establishments. The partnership with ArtsBoston this year will allow those diner's to add a great show on to their evening for 50% less than it would normally cost! The list of included shows in this promotion can be found here (http://www.bostonusa.com/visit/restaurantweek), and the great thing is the sheer variety of performances that are open to us all at these great rates! Those looking for laugh out loud comedy at the Improv Asylum to those seeking amazing Piano solos from an acclaimed pianist will all find something on this list of shows!
Restaurant week, and the accompanying schedule of shows from Boston Arts, runs from March 14-19th, and March 21-26th 2010. Grab your sweetie, or that person you've been eyeing on the T, or even just your best pal and enjoy a fantastic meal, and a wonderful show all for a bargain! Bring back that old "date night" feel that we remember!
