Quite Night In

Movie night in for two? Go all out on movie snacks, make your own gourmet hotdogs, burgers and fries. Switch up the décor of the room you’ll be using, and grab some large cushions and blankets to create the right ambiance.


You can’t go wrong with dinner though the best restaurants will most likely have been booked up well in advance. But explore venturing into new areas to see availability and try new cuisines. Dress up to the nines, eat good food, and have great conversations, discussing what the future holds for 2023.
