Date Night Deals

Between weekend travel, weddings and summertime spending, my wallet’s been aching a bit lately. It wasn’t until I went to Yelp Corfu, a new Mediterranean tapas place on Cross Street, and saw a $20 for $30 Yelp deal that I remembered how often I used to rely on Groupon, Living Social and other deal sites for affordable date nights (and girls’ nights out!).

I used to always open and read those daily deal emails. I loved them. In fact, I loved them so much that I kept signing up for more. Groupon, Living Social, Capitol Deal, Yipit, Woot. It got out of control. So I slowly stopped checking them, forgot about them, and that was that. But when I saw the Yelp deal for Corfu–which is supposed to be great, by the way–I started poking around my old haunts to see what kind of bargains I was missing out on.

Thought you all might be in the same boat so I figured I’d share my findings. In no particular order:

Two-hour social painting event from Paint Nite. Was $45; now $25.

BYOB ceramics classes at the ClayGround Studio. Was $40; now $21.

Comedy magic show for two at Illusions Bar and Theater. Was $32; now $16.

$16 for $30 worth of Thai food at Thai Yum.Β 

$16 for $30 worth of Turkish food at Cazbar.

Two pints of Belgian beer, fresh steamed mussels and one row-nut dessert at Rowhouse Grille. Was $32; now $15.

$15 for $30 worth of sushi and more at Sticky Rice.

$10 for $20 worth of Southern-inspired food at Myth and Moonshine.

$25 for $50 worth of comfort food at Langermann’s.

Bottle of wine with cheese and a shared plate at Silo.5% Wine Bar.

$20 for $40 worth of gourmet pub food at Heavy Seas Alehouse.

$20 for $30 worth of Mediterranean tapas at Corfu.

$10 for $20 worth of seasonal American cuisine at Liv2Eat.

**When buying a deal, be sure to read the fine print on how/when the voucher can be used as well as when it expires. Also remember to tip on the bill amount BEFORE the applied discount.**

Of course, Baltimore’sΒ Restaurant Week also starts on Friday, so that’s another way to try a new spot without breaking the bank. If you haven’t already made your reservations, get on it!
