    Default First date night is 3 years help!!!!!

    Yes it's been 3 years since DH and I have had a date night. No excuses just life here I guess. Well its got to a point that we desperately need some Mummy and Daddy time. I've organised a babysitter for a few hours whatever Saturday night we want, now I just need ideas.

    I want to do something really special for DH as I've been a bit of a cow lately. I want to show him how special he is to me.

    Please please please does anyone have any ideas at all. Oh btw I'm in Brisbane.

    TIA

    How about a movie and dinner at a really nice restaurant? or if you want more of a fun thing to do how about ten pin bowling at Strike in the city..? then dinner? least with ten pin bowling i guess you can have fun/have a laugh and talk too in the process... whatever you do, i really hope you enjoy!!

    Depending on your budget, how about getting a luxury car, something the hubby likes, to pick you up and take you to a favourite restaurant?
    Or if your DH is into it maybe go to a mini golf or something?
    Or maybe go see a comedy show? I any are on that night.

    I'm in WA so I don't know what you have around you but that's my ideas

    Our budget is small sadly. Approx $300 for the night. I thought about dinner and a movie but don't know any really nice restaurants in Brissie, and I really wanted something different and special. I'm so not creative with romantic special nights :-(

    Why not pack a picnic and drive out to Yatala and see a movie at the Drive In? Dinner on the beach or nice look out, Gold Class movie with dinner, mini golf, iceskating...
    I'm sure someone could recommend a lovely restaurant.

    There's heaps of things you could do.

    What about the gondola dinner cruise?

    Otherwise, DH and I like going to the Blue Room Cinebar in Rosalie when we get a chance to have an afternoon or evening out. You can have dinner at a nearby restaurant like Salt and then share some wine and a dessert plate at the Blue Room while watching a film (nicer and cheaper than gold class cinemas and a better choice of films).

    The Summit restaurant at Mt Cootha or Brett's Wharf at Hamilton might be other options for a romantic dinner.

    Ok, here are a couple of nice restaurants in Brisbane that I know of... of course depends on what you like..

    Spizzico at East Brisbane - They do nice italian food
    My Thai at Rosalie - obviously thai food, lol.
    The buffet at the Gold Coast Casino is really good,
    Most of the restaurants at Portside are pretty good...(just google portside restaurants I guess, so u can see what's there)
    There are a couple of new restaurants that i have heard are good at Southbank, at the far end of the walkway when you walk along the river... they seem busy yet popular..
