Nifty Under $50: Date Night In Cornelius
Welcome to “Nifty Under $50″ where I will be highlighting different things that you can do all around the Charlotte and greater Charlotte for under $50.
Today, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I figured I’d start with date night and since I live in Cornelius I figured I’d start there first…. Ok yes, this is somewhat for my own benefit however, anyone can make the trip to Cornelius to make this happen.
First, on your way home from work or on your way to her house stop by Artistry Florals at 18509-B Statesville Road Cornelius, NC 28031 and pick up a single rose for $3.
Then go to dinner at 131 Main at 17830 N. Statesville Rd. Cornelius, NC 28031. My wife and I go there often, in fact we went to dinner there this past Friday. For the sake of this blog I will order for you.
- Starters: Deviled Eggs (so good) $6
- Meal: Slow Roasted Chicken (HUGE plenty to share) $16 .
For dessert go to Downtown Davidson, just a 5 minute drive from 131 Main and is quite the location for a romantic walk after dinner. Stop by either the Soda Shop or Ben and Jerry’s, which are both on Main Street, grab some ice cream and if the weather is warm enough go for a walk down Main Street. $5-$10
After dessert head over to Our Town Cinemas in Davidson for a really cool movie experience. Our Town Cinemas is a local movie Theater that really offers a laid back and relaxing setting to watch a movie. You actually sit in office chairs that move and lean back along with every two chairs having their own table for your food and drinks. Oh by the way it’s not your typical food and drinks, food from local restaurants and beer on tap as well. Price: $20 total without food or drinks.
So the total price for a romantic date night with your boo will cost you $45 -$50 (depending on what you order for dessert)
