Whether you’re looking for an idea to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime anniversary, or to spice up a blessedly free weekend, we’ve dug up the best ways to spend precious time with your hubby.
Learn To Dance
If it turned Silver Linings Playbook‘s depressed, angry Pat (Bradley Cooper) into positive relationship material, just imagine what a class would do for your guy. Plenty of studios offer sessions for first-timers and couples, but if your guy’s especially intimidated, consider booking a private lesson to start.
Be A Little Silly
“On one of our first dates, my guy and I challenged each other to a ‘triathlon’ of activities we both liked,” says Robyn H., 28, of Durham, NC. “We decided to compete in foosball, Pac-man, and pizza-eating. We were laughing the whole time, and now, part of the fun of ‘triathloning’ is coming up with three ‘events’ we can compete in. We’ve done ice skating, Connect Four, and M&M-eating and another time, we did swimming, diving, and onion ring eating.”
Friday night date-night dinner can be crowded and cliché. Instead, trade carpooling duties with a friend, and spend a free Saturday at brunch. Or, just have it at home. While you can’t go wrong with eggs and mimosas, Leah Tinari, owner of New York City brunch hotspot Fatta Cuckoo, swears by BLT tacos. To make them, take corn tortillas and toast them in a pan while you’re frying bacon. Top the tacos with arugula, avocado slices, tomatoes, and a dash of hot sauce. Toast the day ahead with a tequila sea breeze: one ounce grapefruit juice, one ounce cranberry juice, and one ounce tequila. To make it extra delicious, eat it in bed…nearly nakéd.
Go back to school
We live in a college town, and we’re always scanning the school’s website to see what interesting, open-to-the-public activities it offers,” says Denver resident Jane S., 38. “We’ve seen cool authors speak, gone to shows of student work, and,
I’ll admit it, get a kick out of strolling around campus and imagining we we’re still 19.”
