Being in the know on local events happening in your neck of the woods goes a long way towards kickin’ up the romance in any relationship. Having inside information the latest “hot spots”, restaurants, venues, etc. gives you access to a wealth of information you can use to plan your next date, romantic weekend, or even a blissful holiday in Europe! Here are my top pics for the best online sites to pick up the information and tips you need to make your next outing absolutely fabulous!
1. Local Wine Events – this site totally rocks! They have all the latest wine events down to the city and you can search by where you live or even internationally if you are planning a trip abroad. I love this site because you can sign up for email newsletters that sends the latest local events right to your email box so you don’t have to lift a finger to find out what’s going on near you! There’s nothing like a little wine to get the party started with your honey so check out this site and pick out something to surprise your sweetie with!
2. Eventful – this site is really cool for an all around melting pot of events happening in your area from family friendly events to sports events to the arts. You can find something for just about anybody’s taste on this site. Browse events by category or area, and somehow this site always seems to know I’m in Houston and takes me right to events in my local area of town (these computers are just getting smarter and smarter aren’t they). I love a good concert and this site is perfect to find out when my fav band is coming to town!
3. CityGuide – this site is perfect for finding “restaurants, bars, nightclubs, events and concerts”…at least that’s what they boast anyway. You can search by popular city right from their homepage which makes finding things in your area a snap. When I clicked on Houston they even had a dessert tab…how did they know that’s one of my favorite things???!!! There’s a quick guide to give you some easy pointers on the most popular places to go and you can even search by tag which also makes use of this site a breeze. Find a local hidden gem of a restaurant and take your sweetie one night during the week out of the blue and tell them it’s a “just because” dinner!
See, you don’t have to know all the local socialites to get the information you need to plan your next romantic weekend getaway or surprise dinner for two. All you have to do is jump on the web and use sites like these to cut down on the information gathering so you have more time to plan the perfect event and more time to spend with your honey bunny (couldn’t resist using that nickname because that’s what I call my baby)! Let me know if you know of any more sites that you think are worth mentioning.
