Alphabet Date Nights

Alphabet Date Nights - Just Murrayed
If you’ve had enough of your typical date night of dinner and a movie or maybe you’ve recently moved to a new city like us, then you might want to give Alphabet Date Nights a try! It’s not an entirely original concept, I first heard about the idea from Hudson and Emily who have started doing alphabet date nights and figured since The Mister and I moved to a new city, what better way to get to know Vancouver AND have a really fun and unique date night.

What is it?
Alphabet Date Nights concept is simple: you and your spouse take turns to plan regular dates taking inspiration from the alphabet to plan your activity. It’s fun, simple and means that you’ll get something more than the typical dinner and a movie date night.

Take the letter “C”, for example. You could go to a restaurant that starts with the letter C, go see a movie that starts with the letter C, or do an activity that starts with the letter C, and the list goes on.

Here are some ideas to get you started.

Alphabet Date Night Ideas
A – aquarium, arcade, art gallery, apple picking,
B – baseball game, burlesque show, bowling, bookstore, brunch, beach, bike ride, BBQ, board games
C – concert, camping, cinema, corn maze, cooking lesson, casino, cafe

  1. I’ve always loved seeing couples do this. I’m just always scared to try because I know we will fail. But I guess I should just give myself grace. Maybe I’ll try it next year.

    1. Do it! I’m also a bit afraid to fail since The Mister is so busy, always but I think we’ll have more time to do this in the fall so I’m going to bug him to start it then!
