Great Ideas for Date Night


Too busy to plan the perfect date night? No worries — we’ve got you covered.

Start with dinner at Venetian Moon Ristorante & Martini Bar (680 Main Street). Head upstairs for a livelier scene, or stay on the first floor for a more low-key evening. Servers in both places are happy to let you order at your own pace.

Let Paul the bartender prepare you a Jacks Elixir, or choose something from the extensive martini menu. Popular menu items are the stuffed mushrooms and Brontosaurus rib-eye. Share small plates if you want to get a little cozier. The oversized entrées make for great sharing, too.

Follow dinner with a flick at Jordan’s Furniture IMAX (50 Walkers Brook Drive). It reopens September 16 with some major high-tech upgrades, including IMAX with next-generation sound. The laser projection system is said to provide the sharpest, most vivid digital images ever.

Since Jordan’s IMAX was already the best place around for catching a movie (Tempur-pedic seats!), we can’t wait to check out the new offerings.

We’ll leave you with a quick tip: Buy your IMAX tickets online in advance so you won’t need to rush leaving the restaurant — and keep in mind that the best seats in the house are in the back.
