With Valentine’s Day on the horizon many of us are looking for fun way to stay in and avoid the hustle and bustle of restaurants, bars and movie theaters. That means rethinking the traditional dinner-and-a-movie date night. Not to fear, GoNetspeed is here with some fresh ideas to put a little yay in your stay.
Upgrade Your Dinner and a Movie
If a night out at your favorite bistro followed by the latest theater release isn’t quite in your plans this season, not to worry. You can recreate the traditional dinner-and-a-movie date night right from the comfort of home. After all, with great internet anything is possible. Make the night special by swapping DoorDash for Harry and David’s gourmet Filet Mignon dinner for two, or if you prefer grazing, try an artisanal charcuterie board from Board and You. With your delicious dinner close by, grab the remote and tee up a flick through your Smart TV. Some of our favorite movie apps like Crackle, Tubi, and Vudu have thousands of titles, including new releases, that are available to watch right away—and many are available for free!
Catch a Show from Your Couch
Does your heart ache for the pulse-pounding feeling of live music? Then you need Qello. With legendary performances from Madonna, Queen, and Coldplay to amazing documentaries on Beyoncé, Adele, and Pink Floyd, Qello can keep you and your date rocking all night long for less than cost of one concert ticket. Relive your favorite live performance or stream a new concert from an iconic performer, right from the comfort of home. We promise you’ll have the best seats in the house.
Sip and Paint like a Pro
No Facebook invite required for this party for two. If you want to recreate the experience of a sip-and-paint event in the comfort of home, look no further than Etsy. Creators there are making it easy for couples to engage in an artsy night in with your favorite bottle of wine by offering kits that contain everything you need to paint like a pro. Our favorite kits are from Scribblebyheart who has a nice selection of couples-themed paint kits including heart-shaped lock and key, love birds, and kissing fish. Check it out here.
Get to Know Jack
Love jokes? Trivia? Drawing? Then it’s time you tried Jackbox Games. What began in 1995 as a trivia game called You Don’t Know Jack has since expanded its offering to include funny scribble games, inside joke games, irreverent trivia games, and more. Jackbox Games are available on a variety of digital platforms, including Apple TV, Xbox One, and Playstation. Search for and download the party pack of your choice, grab a web-enabled device (like your smartphone) and start playing!
