February’s here, and we’re all about great date nights. But if you’re more in the mood to stay in and snuggle up on the couch after the kids have gone to bed (and let’s be honest, come Friday night, that’s all most Cincinnati Parents want to do!), Yelp Cincy’s DIY Date Night guide has everything you need for a delicious and entertaining night in! Here’s Cindy from Yelp:
We’re closing in to the tail end of winter and our cases of cabin fever are growing stronger. We’ve got everything you need to plan your own own movie night at home complete with pizza, popcorn, candy, and even a set up to make-your-own soda shop!
First stop, popcorn! No movie night is complete without a salty classic and Patty’s does it right. It is freshly popped, crunchy, not greasy, just perfect! The popcorn is popped without any spice, therefore you can add whatever you want or buy a bag that is pre-mixed with some of Patty’s favorites (all that you can sample before you buy)!
This “sweet” little candy shop will take you back to your childhood, as they have candy from any era that you could possibly imagine. Charleston Chews, Dots, Jelly Bellies, Butterscotch’s, etc. With more than 400+ types of candy (at an insanely cheap price tag) there is no craving that will go unsatisfied.
Who doesn’t love eating a slice of pizza on a cozy night in watching a flick? Fireside cooks up a perfectly crafted woodfired pie, to cap off a sweet tooth with a savory bite. PRO TIP: They deliver too!
You gotta grab a bar of Maverick chocolate to split when your craving something sweet during your movie night too and this spot is a Yelper fave! The bean to bar makes for the most decadent chocolate and within your first bite you can immediately tell that this chocolate is super high quality. PRO TIP: Try before you buy! They are more than happy to let you (and your picky eater) try any of the chocolate before you make that final pick.
OTR Candy Bar will take you back in time! Walk into to their very own soda bar, complete cute bar stools that look like bottle caps. They have a variety of bottle sodas, from classic Coca-Cola, Fanta and other hard-to-find craft and retro sodas. You can buy any of these to take home or you can pick one and take it to the bar and they will make you a soda float! Yes they will top that soda off with some delicious vanilla ice cream, a licorice stick and even put it in a cool cup that changes colors to take home with you.
