PLAN DATE: THURS / FEB. 14
You’ll be clutching your stomachs with laughter and thanking your lucky stars for each other as you watch four wildly funny, professional and single comedians battle it out for an all-expenses-paid date with a hot bachelor (courtesy of idk tonight). Like a mashup of Last Comic Standing and The Bachelor, The BackFatLor is exactly the kind of quality entertainment you want to be consuming with your partner for a Valentine’s Day that’s full of big, hearty laughs, and the happy appreciation that all you ever have to do is enjoy watching dating shows rather than competing in them. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door, but $6 with the code IDKTONIGHT. Bonus: our very own founder Jordan Scott, and her fiancé Nick are the judging panel, so it’s a show that you, as lovers of love and doing love things, surely don’t want to miss. Tickets can be purchased here.
Then, keep the fun going with a trip to Benchmark, a New American restaurant sourcing meat only from pasture-raised animals and using locally-grown produce when possible. If love’s got you in a carnivorous mood, try the ribeye or the filet mignon, or go a bit lighter with the ahi tuna or the roasted acorn squash. And, don’t forget to grab a cocktail or two to round out your evening at this lovely date spot.
