We took to our Facebook Page and asked readers about their favorite Date Night experience in Huntsville. We got TONS of great replies, and lots of ideas about places to go with your significant other, your friends, or just be by yourself!
It’s also a GREAT time to spring for that sitter and visit a few restaurants this weekend. The Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau is hosting Huntsville Restaurant Week as part of the state-wide Year of Alabama Food, and it goes through this Sunday. Rocket City Mom detailed how it works and even included a list of all the participating restaurants (with notations of those with a kid’s menu!). You can view it here. Finally, if you’ve never checked out The Dining Dragon, now’s a great time. It’s my go-to place to get honest local restaurant reviews from a fellow foodie!
Go ahead and bookmark this page for when you get a Date Night yourself! And be sure to add your suggestions in the comments.
