Membership Has Its Privileges: Cuddle Up To Free Dates From HowAboutWe For Couples.

Todd English's Olives

This Sunday the hubby and I had the pleasure of going on a date compliments of a fabulous subscription service designed specifically for couples.  HowAboutWe for Couples is a subscription service designed specifically for couples. Each month, you and your significant other receive a new “DateBook” – filled with pre-planned, one-of-a-kind experiences in your city.  Membership costs $22 a month that you can pause or cancel any time, which is a great resource to have as a mom of a one year old.  It removes the time and energy that you have to put in for planning a date as you juggle your day to day duties.  The other great thing about this service is that it is so easy to sign up for the dates.  You log in to your account, view the calendar for the month and then just click to book the date.  A confirmation email comes to you afterwards to confirm your date and wa la!

The date I chose for us was dinner for two at Olives, which is Todd English’s restaurant in Union Square.  We had a fabulous time!  The dinner was to die for!  The setting was very romantic and comfortable and I will definitely be starting a membership with HowAboutWe for Couples.

Our 4 course meal consisted of:

  1. Spicy Chicken Meatballs cherry peppers, agrodolce.
  2. Calamari Fritti spicy aioli, lemon
  3. Beet & Goat Cheese Ravioli walnut pesto, parmesan cream
  4. Prosecco Carpene Malvoti Veneto Nv
  5. Bone-in Ribeye Steak Frites garlic & rosemary rub, olives, french fries, onion jam, sweet chili butter, watercress salad
  6. Pinot Grigio Villa Chiopris Friuli ’10
  7. Apple Crisp whipped cheesecake, nutmeg ice cream quince butter, green apple sorbet
