DATE IDEAS | NOW THAT'S PROGRESSIVE

Hop progressively from restaurant to restaurant ordering cocktails at one bar, appetizers at another location, entrees at the next, and then finally, dessert.

Hop progressively from restaurant to restaurant ordering cocktails at one bar, appetizers at another location, entrees at the next, and then finally, dessert - which should really be special.


Below are a few solid choices for each course, but customize your own selection and route depending upon taste preferences, cost, and the area of the city that you wish to visit. Feel free to 'recategorize' restaurants since some would be great for either drinks, dinner, or dessert.


For a more extensive list of options, search Restaurants, Happy Hours, Event Dining, Cheap Eats, Dinner Theater, Chocolate Cafes, Sweet Treats, and/or Late Night Dining.
