What could be better than sharing a starry night with the one you love? Or cuddling up in front of a cozy fire? Maybe the best is sipping some exotic beverage together? No… even better… Nothing can beat sorting through the mail and destroying the stuff containing personal info in order to keep it from meddling hands who like your identity better than their own. Priceless. Since they’re all good choices, we decided to pool them together to enjoy the night of a lifetime. Worlds collide, magic unfolds.
Stack of Wood: $7 (or pick up limbs around your house)
Backyard bonfire. We happen to have a nice little burner which prevents the fire brigade from coming to visit, but if you live in Oklahoma (and if you are not under a Burn Ban), that’s not necessary.
Take all your bank mail, pre-approved credit cards (papers only, no plastic), old love letters you don’t want found, and anything else you’d prefer no one else see, and put a match to them. You’ll want to have some wood around to keep it burning longer than a few minutes.
Alcoholic Beverage Drinkers: $10/Teetotalers: $4
Chocolate Bar: $2
Put an air mattress, or a spring filled one if you’re feeling strong, out next to the fire. Take a bottle of Chocovine if you consume alcoholic beverages, or a bottle of sparkling grape juice if not, a few ice cubes, perhaps some grapes or a bar of chocolate & a blanket & you have yourself a cozy date under the stars. (This also works with just some sleeping bags if you don’t want to mess with an air mattress).
Please check out the local restrictions on backyard fire pits if you’re building your own and other fire safety tips.
Total Date Night: $13-$19
