Cheap Date Ideas: Go to a Wine Tasting!
No wineries near you? No problem! Lots of wine shops, liquor stores and restaurants have cheap wine tasting events, and often provide complementary appetizers for each wine. Just check out your local newspaper or do a quick search online for events in your area.
- Figure out which wines you like. There are soo many wines out there: Chianti, Bordeaux, Sauvig-say-what? Here's a simple way to figure out which wines you like: do your research! Pick up a few cheap bottles of wine the next time you're in the market and invite a few friends over for a nightcap.
- Eat a healthy dinner before the wine tasting. You can expect appetizers at the tasting, but make sure you fill up on healthy, high-fiber foods at home. Otherwise, you may risk having a—dun, dun, dun—wine-induced hangover. (And, honestly, who considers three cubes of cheese a meal?)
- Grab a cab, if you need one! This is a no-brainer. But we love you, and want you safe and sound, so no drinking and driving!
The best part of this cheap date idea? It's tasty and educational; you can put your new knowledge of grapes to use for future date nights!
And don't forget to top off your wine tasting date with a toast: Cheers! We found a babysitter on a Friday!
