Enjoy a nice romantic dinner out this weekend. Get dressed up and find a nice restaurant where you can just gaze into each other’s eyes and enjoy the ambiance. There’s nothing like some mood lighting and some smooth jazz to set the tone for a romantic evening. After any long, stressful work week, it’s nice to go out as a couple and just spend some quality time treating yourselves. Take a break from fast food and takeout. Take a break from rushing through meals and actually enjoy one.
Remember that date night should be a romantic night out. This is not the time to fight about small things or bring up old stuff. Talk big picture. Talk about your future, your goals, your dreams. Talk about your highs and lows of the week. Motivating and encouraging one another will only strengthen your bond as a couple and allow you to move further as individuals.
Low on funds? Don’t worry! There’s nothing wrong with having date night at home.

This best-kept secret is one of the best soul-food restaurants in Richmond. Family-owned and operated, this restaurant has a fairly extensive menu and is reasonably priced. Check out the live jazz and R & B bands on Friday nights. Click here for more details.
This is another good choice for real food for your soul. The cornbread might make you want to smack your mama! Richmond locals go here as much for the music as for the food. If you like old school R & B you are sure to enjoy the playlist all night! They are moderately priced and have several options on the menu, but they are known for their “fish boat”.

This one is going to be a more expensive night out, but hey, sometimes you have to treat yourselves! If you want to keep your bill low, just have dinner at home and come here for dessert! You can still get the full effect of “going out” and enjoying the experience of a nice restaurant (without the mini heart attack when the bill comes). Click here for more details.
Enjoy a night out at BFG! This one is a bit more expensive as well, but will be worth it for the experience. If you’re ballin on a budget, just try one of their specials or split something. Click here for more details.
