A Little Bit of Romance

Wednesday like every good Atlantans with a flexible work schedule I was out celebrating St Patrick’s Day in true Irish fashion. It was amazing to see how vibrant this city truly is. Q100 sponsored an event at Fado’s unofficial, official Iris pub of Atlanta. Bands started playing in the misty afternoon and but by 6:00pm the light afternoon crowd had turned into a large eclectic mix we call Atlantans. All three floors of Fado’s were packed and as I leaned over the railing of the third floor patio to watch the Irish dancers I was filled with pride for our city. It was so nice to see so many people of such unique backgrounds come together and celebrate a rich culture.

A bit later at Dunwoody Tavern I ran into a few transplants. After explain to them what I do for a living I was asked what a good idea for a date night in the city would be and I am ashamed to say I couldn’t answer him. Not because we don’t have anything to do in the city of course but because I was so overwhelmed with ideas that I couldn’t decide what to tell him. So for the next few weeks we are going to review date night ideas!

First dates should be memorable, romantic and fun. The Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a perfect start. They have the Towers of Flowers, an Orchid exhibit going on right now in addition to their beautiful permanent blooms. And of course it not just flowers; the garden has sculptures as well. On a beautiful spring day or evening there would be nothing more enchanting than a visit to the garden. While this would be a perfectly great date, I think we should go further for the more established couple. Dinner should follow!! Some amazing restaurants near the gardens include Mu Lan Chinese restaurant, Silk, Steel, Repast, and Baraonda. Each of these restaurants have an inviting yet romantic atmosphere, and depending on what you are in the mood to eat they would all be in keeping with the theme of the evening, romance. Keep in mind that we are not done yet. No passionate date is complete without chocolate!! Our end to the perfect evening is of course the Chocolate Bar! With an amazing assortment of desserts, drinks and of course the smell of chocolate encompassing you as you step in, your night will scream fairy tale. We here at the Inn at the Peachtrees wish you good luck in your romancing!
