Last Friday we went on a concert date. Then our whole family got really sick and I have not felt like dating since—yes me! This is why I have not been writing for awhile. ..just resting up.
Anyway, last Friday I took my husband to the Norah Jones concert in Madison Square Garden as a surprise. When we were dating he made me copies of two of her albums and said that they reminded him of me, so we often listen to her music together in the car. We are not big concert goers but we noticed that she has not done many concerts in NYC so I was excited when I saw that she was performing in NYC on March 27th. It turns out that my husband remembered that March 27th was our first date (I forgot) and he brought home a rose and a card saying that he hoped our date that night would be as great as our first one. So I was lucky that I had accidentally planned something extra special.
We grabbed some dinner at a Chinese restaurant right near Madison Square Garden at a place called Chef Yu NYC. We had not made reservations and we just wandered in there to eat. We were late so we were lucky that they were speedy and they took us right away. It was synchronicity! The place was classy, the space was beautiful, the food was really good, the service was excellent and the price was inexpensive for that area and for such a nice looking place. Our total bill for two sodas and two yummy dishes came to $20 a person. So I would recommend this as a good inexpensive dinner date spot near that concert venue. I’ll post the contact info for the restaurant and related links for you below.
Anyway, Norah Jones was excellent in concert. She has such a range and she did a good mixture of old and new songs. We loved it.
So if you want a romantic date night take your date to a concert to see a concert with a singer they really love. You can pick ‘your song’ from their list so it’ll always bring back romantic memories. Who knows…maybe one day it could even be your wedding song.
Music has a way of going straight to the heart. So place an alert for certain artists that remind you of each other so you’ll know when they are coming into town and then you can surprise your date! It does get expensive to go to concerts a lot but our tickets were $40 each and it was a rare romantic treat.
You can also find out what type of music your date loves and make her/him as mixed CD. They will hear it and think of you.
If you have any especially upcoming romantic concert date suggestions for everyone please post your comments below.
