Evening on town+Transport to Evening on Town & Your B&B Stay

July 12, 2022

Arts & Theatre

You're itching to execute a unique out-on-the-town experience where you can gain all kinds of points with your significant other.  The perfect event allows for extended times where there are just the two of you together in a romantic setting. Hence, you also need to plan for out-on-the-town, post-event romantic interludes. Great organization, plans, romance and surprise are key to gain those ever so desirous "extra" bonus points that create lasting memories you both can relish for years to come.

Here is a plan for you.

·         * Check out a nearby theatre schedule. Go for a live presentation. Movies are nice, but live shows are a much more memorable experience primarily because of the uniqueness.

·         * Pick an event you would both like to attend. If you are unsure, go for an instrumental or play event.

·         * Look for a really nice restaurant near the Theatre. Skip Taco Bell and the like. Go for linens and attentive service.

·         * Most importantly, find a romantic Bed and Breakfast to spend TWO nights at. Hunt for one with a limo style shuttle service to and from your night on the town events who offers you gourmet style breakfasts and over the top amenities and accommodations. The 1st night you roll into town for the theatrical/dining experience. The second night you enjoy the company of each other in solitude and romance. Soak together in your double backed wet room's claw foot tub and/or stand under the that room's rain head shower and multiple body showers. You simply must add a relaxing sunset balcony or in-room massage . Hunt for large remote properties with private balconies to allow you to commune with nature from an elevated position.  A game area can allow you to entertain each other between those romantic interludes.

         * Better yet, stay a THIRD night and plan to dine in. Find a B&B place who will bring you a grand meal from a local restaurant to be eaten on your private terrace or near a secluded hot tub. You should consider eating next to a fires romantic burning log crackle.  Seek cozy two person porch style swings.

          * Maybe one more thing would be nice. Have all this set-up for you. Your pre-event time to accomplish this over-the-top experience is limited.

* The best execution results are had when one of the two of you is surprised by the events as they evolve. Reserve the dates with your significant other; but do not divulge the elements before they happen. Keep the surprise alive. Let the B&B know that romance is an objective. They can often help with surprises like candlelit rooms and special bath/bed amenities like rose petals and scents.

* Bienvenue Mon Ami Bed and Breakfast and Art Gallery can make ALL of this happen for you and your special companion.
