Another Hot Date Suggestion from Hubby....

Monday, February 1, 2010.....

Saturday, while hubby and I were out and about picking up a Starbucks, buying Powerball lottery tickets (didn't win) and recharging the battery on my car (extreme cold temperatures + undriven car = jumpstart), hubby came up with another BRILLIANT romantic date suggestion.

As before, very little money is necessary for this date and he was so proud of himself that I feel I have to share with others.

The Brunch Date:

1. Tell your date you want to take her to Sunday brunch. Inform her to wear her Sunday best as the sky's the limit with her.

2. Pick up a local paper in an affluent town on the day the real estate listings are posted.

3. Map out all the open houses.

4. If you live in Connecticut, stop at the liquor store the night before and pick up some Mad Dog. Every brunch needs some bubbly.

5. When dressing that morning for your brunch date, make sure you have shoved enough plastic sandwich bags in your coat pockets. This is key.

6. Pick up date, who is beautifully dressed, open the car door and, if planned properly, turn to her and give her the option of 3 different towns to choose from to go for brunch.

7. Drive to the first Open House and ensure that you give your date her own baggie (she may be opposed to having you paw her food) and tell her to dig in at the free food platters [Note: You should always check to see if your local realtors put out food for their Open Houses. Otherwise, you might have to actually take your date to an actual restaurant].

8. Assuming there is food and you have each have filled up your Ziplocs, go to several more Open Houses before sitting back in a random parking lot sipping your cold Mad Dog 22 and enjoying the fine food scored at one of these events.

Hubby did mention you could eat at the Open House, but you really couldn't relax and enjoy one another's company.

I asked why not bubbly or Boone's Farm wine and he just said no. He was adamant about having MD22 (never had, so I can't even comment on this).

After he laid out his plan for the perfect Brunch Date, he smiled because he realized this would cost him less than the $25 dinner & movie date he spelled out for me a couple of months ago.

Gee, aren't a lucky girl?

kk said...

oh you ARE lucky.

I remember my days of open houses all day long on Sundays and it never include food.

I guess I never went to the affluent enough open houses because all the ones I visited never had food either! If I ever find myself hungry on a Sunday I'll know where to go now.

We used to drink that wine in high school, I think it was about 20% alcohol, and cheap too.

Haha hey, he's creative!

Brian Miller said...

wow. his suggestions are enriching my marriage...keep em coming! smiles.

Did he figure gas into this equation? With gas prices the way they are, I'm not sure this one beats the $25 dollar date. Of course, you could spend a little more becaue this one is so classy!!

Forget blog...he needs to write a book. Thousands of poor young men need his guidance.

You know the date is going to be really good when you are handed a baggie.

This reminds me of a game I play when I am waiting in line and bored. It's called "How much stuff could I get for free if I were really really broke?"

Omg this is awesome. I don't know what I would do if a future bf did this. I mean I'm the type of girl that goes to Wing Night & brings ziploc's to take the extras home cuz they won't let you get a box, so I might dig the Open House snacks. hehe.

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Haha that's genius. Apart from the Mad Dog thing, that's just wreckless and dangerous. I mean I've HAD Mad Dog and well...no. Not unless you're underage and desperate. Same for Thunderbird.

Show houses and free food though, you can't fault that.

This is ace! Culture, Food, Drink, Travel and Entertainment all in one!!! I LOVE it!!!

TechnoBabe said...

Kind of along the same line as crashing a wedding reception at a big hotel and eating till you're full. Anyway, it is the thought that counts and your hubby wants to have special dates with you and keep within the budget. I hope you gave him an appreciative hug. Or kiss. Or something.

Sounds romantic to me! I double dare you to go back to one of the Open Houses and have sex in one of the rooms after a little snack and beer!
;)

Hugs!!

That's my kinda man.

Wait... no, that's not what I meant!

Badass Geek said...

That? Is EPIC. Such a good idea.

Working Mommy said...

That really isn't such a bad idea...I always wanted to rent a limo, dress nice, handcuff a suitcase to my wrist and go to a huge open house. Just to see what people say :)
