Date Night, 2.0

Do the same options pop into your head when planning a night out (or in) with your significant other? Read on.



Dinner and a movie. A concert or show in the city. Binge-watching one of your favorite TV shows on Netflix. Do the same options pop into your head when planning a night out (or in) with your significant other? Read on for more ideas.

Kick back at a coffeehouse. The Red Eye Café in Montclair features Fair Trade coffee from around the world, while The Coffee Mill Roasters in Millburn serves up freshly roasted brews as well as Balthazar pastries. Another option: Mara’s Café and Bakery in Denville, which offers some of the best baked goods to go with your cuppa joe.

In the mood for something stronger? Grab a seat at the hip bar or at one of the cozy tables at Jersey Spirits in Fairfield and sample some Jersey Apple Hooch, Crossroads Whiskey, DSP.7 Gin or one of the distillery’s other handmade spirits. The tasting room is open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. If beer is your beverage of choice, head next door to Magnify Brewing and try a Vine Shine IPA, Search Saison or Black Wheat. The craft brewer is open for tastings until 10 p.m. on Fridays, 9 p.m. on Saturdays.

Broadway isn’t the only place where the curtain rises. The February slate at Millburn’s Paper Mill Playhouse features a can’t-miss production of A Bronx Tale. In Morristown, the Mayo Performing Arts Center boasts a diverse lineup—the legendary Beach Boys and the ’70s Southern rock group Marshall Tucker Band stop by this month, while the Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra performs in March.

Need a laugh? The Comedy Shoppe sets up shop in Mount Arlington’s Courtyard Marriott, where longtime funnymen Tom McTiernan and Rob Falcone have upcoming gigs.

For a nontraditional date, visit Aspen Ice in Randolph, Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown or the Clary Anderson Arena in Montclair for an hour of weekend ice-skating. Test your fitness with indoor rock climbing at the Gravity Vault in Chatham or learn new culinary skills together during a cooking class at Kings Cooking Studio in Short Hills.
