My husband Joe and I are gearing up for a date night out! Right before our baby was born we promised we would immediately institute a date night every week, just the two of us. We had grand plans of finding a babysitter who would come watch the baby every Thursday while we would go out and party like we did before I got pregnant. Well, the baby is 8 months old now, and we’ve only been out twice. We have attempted to party both times, but apparently we can’t make it much past 11 these days. We are lame. We get tired, start stressing about how awful it would be to change diapers with a hangover, then start missing the baby’s chubby little face, and we end up rushing home.
Despite the fact that our nights out haven’t been as frequent or as flashy as we had originally hoped, we still believe it’s important to set time aside for just the two of us. I’ve been told that we should try not to talk about the baby while we’re out because it’s about reconnecting as a couple, but we’re those people who won’t shut up about how brilliant our baby is.
I went searching for Midtown Arts Center’s coupon in Valpak this month, because if Joe and I stand any chance of going out and not talking about the baby, we’ll need to be kept very entertained. I've never seen a show at Midtown Arts Center (formerly Carousel Dinner Theater), but I have only ever heard good things about it. In fact, one of my co-workers loves it so much she has season tickets. Midtown Arts Center usually has good coupons so you can check it out if you’ve never been, and want to see if it’s the scene for you. Midtown is currently presenting Les Misèrables (I feel like I’m the only person who’s never seen Les Mis), and it will run until November 23rd.

I think Joe and I will take advantage of the $99 Date Night offer from Midtown Arts Center, but when I was looking for other date night ideas, I came across this fun postcard announcement from Harrington Arts Academy in Loveland that might be great fun for someone else:
Unfortunately, I don’t have a coupon for this event, but a Vintage 1920’s Glam Gala sounds like a lot of fun regardless of the price! You could get dressed up with your significant other ($120 a couple) or co-workers from the office ($600 for a table of 8) and help support the arts while you enjoy a fancy 3-course dinner, dancing, an auction, and an OPEN bar. Proceeds from the event will be used to help Harrington Arts Academy continue to provide students (of all ages) in the community with a variety of art courses: acting, musical theatre, improvisation, dance, creating writing, painting, mommy & me activities, art & crafts and more.
Harrington’s Arts Academy’s Vintage 1920’s Night will begin at 6:30pm on Saturday, October 12th. Seats are limited, so be sure to get online or call (970) 391-8397 to reserve your tickets today.
Coupon offers are available the date that I post them but may change at any time.
