  1. I loooooove to hit up Crystal Bridges in Bentonville and take in all of the new exhibits and take a load off at their restaurant, Eleven. I rarely get a babysitter since I live out in the middle of nowhere,(Cave Springs), but when I do, the museum is where its at. 🙂 Unless it’s on a Tuesday, of course, they’re closed.;)

  2. We always enjoy a walk around Lake Fayetteville, when we have the chance to get away.

  3. Hmmmmm, this is a tough one cause I very rarely get out! But I do love live music so the Amp is one of my fav!

  4. Would love to listen to some good music and enjoy good food. We haven’t had a date night in so long I don’t think I remember what to do….Hmmm. Do I have to use utensils and everything?? Sound like fun!

  5. We go to the movies, dinner with friends or walk the paths behind Crystal Bridges!

  6. I love having a night with my husband, and we really need to work on making more time for one another!
    We like to do all kinds of things, but my favorite night probably involves music. A good show at Georges, the AMP, or WAC can’t be beat!

  7. I love whatever we decide to do, especially if Bordinos is included! That’s actually my fav and I can’t wait for a special occasion so we can go!

  8. We recently got a babysitter for the day and floated a river near here – it was so much fun! Normally we do dinner and a walk or something low key – any chance to talk without kids interrupting.

  9. Would love to win this for my sister. A few weeks ago she and her husband had a date night planned they went out of town for the weekend. She doesn’t get those often had some bad things happen just before the Symphony they were going to. And her husband ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks after that. Her whole weekend was ruined and affording a weekend out now is gonna be tough for them! If I win I’ll give this to them!

  10. I like to get a bite to eat at places that are not exactly kid friendly or places that I know my children wouldnt like. After dinner music at the AMP is always fun!

  11. We love to go eat really yummy food then go get great coffee at onyx or Puritan.

  12. I would LOVE to spend the evening at an Orchestra with my love for a date night (something we’ve never done)! Wow! Would be so amazing

  13. We will be celebrating 19 years of Marriage on June
    26rh and this would be a Wonderful way to celebrate!
    We don’t get to go out much, but If we do get to go out we like to try new places and sometimes we end up at Barnes and Noble to talk and read

  14. We rarely get out for a date night but we love yummy food & WAC! This would be a great night out.

  15. Date night? What is that!?! Some dinner them drinks and music are always a good combo alone with hubs or with friends.

  16. We love to hit the new movie theater in the square and Table Mesa is always on our go to list! We don’t get out as often as we like but enjoy a lovely summer night out.

  17. Honest to goodness, I don’t care where we go. I just want to get out. We recently moved to Arkansas from Virginia. All our family is on the east coast and we haven’t really developed a support network out here yet. So anywhere away from the house together is a treat!

  18. Crystal Bridges, 21c and the Hive for dinner… or just dinner, drinks and music on a patio.

  19. Something just like this would be great to me! It’s hard to enjoy an orchestra with littles!

  20. My husband and I like to go to the square in Bentonville. There are so many local restaurants to choose from and not to far is the 21C hotel. We love to look at the art and sit at the beehive and talk. It’s a perfect place for a nice date.

  21. Razorback game (any sport), movie, dinner and drinks, concert, WAC play, casino. Honestly we have just gone grocery shopping when we have a sitter. Ha ha!

  22. We love to visit downtown Bentonville. We park downtown and make out like we were teenagers, Ha ha. JK and then we enjoy a walk downtown to one of many of our favorite eateries, like the Crepes Paulette or Flying Fish. Then we walk off the calories by strolling down to the Crystal Bridges Museum and enjoy people watching and looking at the flowers and plants. If the Crystal Bridges museum gift shop is open, we will splurge a little. On the way back we enjoy visiting the Art Gallery at the 21c. If we have the availability of overnight, we love staying the night there too. For Breakfast, we enjoy the Press Room and more strolling of the square and downtown streets.

  23. Great music, food and art!! We love Crystal Bridges, 21c, The preachers son, Ruth’s Chris, Painting, or listening to live music with friends.

  24. We save our special date nights for plays at the Walton arts center or a concert date night at the amp 💗!

  25. This would be a great date night! We need some time together for sure!

  26. We love eating at some of the great restaurants in the area then hitting up a concert at the Amp or sometimes just wandering Walmart is enough.

  27. Dinner at Mermaids and dancing, sometimes dinner at Mermaids and a movie and drinks in bed without any kids.

  28. Love anything where we can get away alone without the kids. This would be a great date.

  29. We haven’t been out or had a sitter since I had our newborn and, foot surgery. Once upon a time though, the drive in and dinner were nice 🙂

  30. We love to go out with friends where we can hang out outdoors or inside .. JGBG is great for indoor/outdoor entertainment and great food!

  31. We love to visit Crystal Bridges and the trails and hit up Apple Blossom for dinner. Those are great things to do with the kids, too, but it’s a more relaxing experience without them every once in awhile. 😉

  32. A date without the kid?! Hahaha, thats funny. I am a SAHM, so we are on a very limited income – no money for a babysitter. We do fun free family activities – I would LOVE an actual date night with my very hard working husband though!

  33. When we rarely get the opportunity.. we enjoy eating out at a nice/restaurant, and having a few cocktails. We catch up on talking ( without interruptions!) We usually pick Red Lobster for the dim lightened atmosphere/fun drink selection. We then will find a lovely scenic walking trail/ park area to walk around in. There are so many to choose from in northwest Arkansas.

  34. With 3 littles date nights are rare. Today is our 15th Anniversary. My husband got off an hour early and came home and made us dinner. It was great. But we would so love a night out! If you want to choose us we’d love to celebrate with a wonderful night out!

  35. My husband and I love date nights which are rare in our house but when we get out we love love love going to eat. We try something new everytime and its always exciting trying new places in NWA! We love movies (we are extreme movie junkies..shhhh) so we enjoy movies at the Skylight theatre in Bentonville and ice cream at The Fountain Cafe (spark is sooo yummy)!!
