Summer Date Night Ideas

It may not be as easy to get out for date nights these days, but MAN they have taken on a new meaning! The evenings when my mom is in town visiting us are a great opportunity to scoot out of the house and enjoy some husband-wife time. Here is a wishlist of things I'd like to do, places I'd like to go, and what I'd like to wear for date nights this summer.

Charlotte Restaurants I'd Like To Try:

Rock Salt: This small new restaurant in Park Road shopping center boasts super-fresh seafood. It's close to home and we are dying to give it a try! (Nice write-up found here.)

Baku: We still haven't eaten here, and I've heard their cocktails are phenomenal. It's on my must-visit list for sure. You know I'm a sucker for a great cocktail.

Nan and Byron's: I feel like the last person in Charlotte to try out this restaurant. The menu looks incredible, and I recently saw on Scoop Charlotte that they offer half-priced wines on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (full list of half-priced wines at Charlotte eateries found here -- great roundup!).

Charlotte Must-Dos This Summer:

Pops In The Park: Sunday evenings in June. We hope to make it to at least one that doesn't get rained out!

My Morning Jacket Concert: Getting tickets to this for sure!

Whitewater River Jam at the Whitewater Center: I think this looks like the perfect way to spend a Thursday or Saturday evening. Concerts are held May through September, and they are free -- you just pay $5 to park your car.

My Perfect Summer Date Night Outfit:

A long white maxi with double leg slits, my new Kendra Scott Danielle earrings, some gorgeous and classic Jack Rogers wedges, and simple makeup ... Benefit Benetint on my cheeks, strawberry Rosebud Salve on my lips, and a few coats of my #1 fave mascara. Easy, quick, fresh and pretty.

Summer Date Night


  1. Rock Salt is owned by Anthony's boss! (Anthony is COO of Rappahannock Oyster Co.) If you go there, you'll be enjoying oysters from my neck of the woods (...or I guess my neck of the ...water?)!!

    1. No WAY? What a small world! I've heard great things about it!

  2. Yes to everything on this list!! Great share!

  3. Summer Pops sounds like so much fun! And your date night outfit inspiration would be the perfect outfit :)

  4. I live in Charlotte too and you gave me some great places to visit this summer! Took the kids to the Daniel Stowe Botantical Gardens yesterday. They have a children's garden that is just beautiful and they loved it. Great place to stroll around if you've never been. Whitewater Center a favorite of ours. Thanks for hosting another week! Enjoy your weekend around "Charlotte."

  5. Love this post...and all the to-do's! DEFINITELY check out Baku. Holy cow, one of our favorite meals ever.

  6. great ideas! concerts in the park are my favorite :) i really need to figure out how to have more dates with H! its so tough sometimes not having family around. xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  7. I love Nan and Byron''s a perfect casual, cozy date night spot. RockSalt didn't wow me, but I'd like to give them another chance.

    River Jam at the Whitewater Center, is our, well, jam. We try to go every Thursday. Pops in the Park is on my summer to-do list...I've been in Charlotte 2 years and have never been!
