Business, shops and restaurants are slowly starting to reopen, but it’s a given that we’ll still be spending more time at home this summer. Looking for creative ways to mix up a night in? Here are some fun things to do.
Tasty Eats: L’Etoile Meal Kits
Carryout is the new going out and home cooking is the new chef’s special. That doesn’t mean you can’t have the best of both worlds with your at-home date night! L’Etoile is offering single-serving meal kits for takeout so that you can have the experience of dining out while in the comfort of your own home. Browse L’Etoile’s meal kit menu here.
Cinema at Home: Ash & Arrow Events Movie Night
If you aren’t familiar with Ash & Arrow’s event setups yet, then now is the time. Ash & Arrow is bringing the movie theater experience right to your backyard, complete with a 14-foot movie screen, all of the necessary A/V equipment, lounge chairs, tables, blankets, rugs and more. Learn more about this particular setup here.
Perfect Pairings: Grape Water Wine Bar
Offering a number of different wine and cheese party packs, cute wine and chocolate pairing boxes and even a “Treat Yo’Self Kit”, Grape Water Wine Bar has officially nailed a fun night in. Kits are customizable and make great gifts, too. All orders can be placed via phone, text and email, and are available for curbside pickup. Find a complete list of Grape Water’s current kits and boxes here.
Board & Brush Craft Kits
While Middleton’s Board & Brush has officially opened its doors for business, take-home craft kits are still available for pickup one day per week. Prep your outdoor spaces for summer by adding a handmade decoration or treat dad to a memento created by the kids for Father’s Day! Each kit includes a design stencil, press-stained wood board, foam paint brushes, plastic paint cups, sandpaper, cloth, a color mixing guide and instructions. Note that all Board & Brush locations utilize a BYOPaint method by encouraging guests to use leftover paints for their projects in an effort to help the environment. See B&B’s project calendar here.
