Another thing we love to do is pack up some food in a picnic basket and head to one of the lakes for an afternoon. We usually wind up on a dock or pier somewhere with him fishing and me reading a book to him.
(this weekend we're heading to the lake--- he'll fish and I'll play with my new CAMERA! YEA!!!!!

For us, inexpensive date night is the beach. We bring blankets and goodies or eat beach food (garlic & clam pizza by the slice...yum-o). The sunsets out here are gorgeous and you can stay on most beaches until 9pm. If we go to the beach at Santa Monica we ride a ride or two which isn't a lot of $$ either. There's another beach where you can have bonfires, all free stuff except for parking and food. In the daytime we go to a lake in the middle of the city that we stumbled upon one day. You can rent pedal boats for like $8 and cruise around. Then we buy lunch in the park - grilled hot dogs wrapped in bacon and corn on the cob Mexican style....mmm Boats and lunch come to like $20. Now that's a cheap date
We also have a favorite park where we hike to the top with wine and munchies then watch the sunset over L.A. I guess ours mostly involve sunsets...lol. There is always Hollywood Video & Thai night which is inexpensive fun at home. And board game night...we love Scrabble & Clue. If we're feeling saucy we walk around our neighborhood....a stroll down Hollywood Blvd. is free and very entertaining...lol

Jay and I love going to Mass MoCa, a modern art museum in the Berkshires (Mass.). The drive there is so pretty at any time of the year. Viewing the art spurs lots of great conversations.
I also love dress up night! OK not that kind of dress up. Every once in a while we will get dressed up (tight dress and heels for me) for either dinner out or a candle lit dinner in.
And we love going to the free concerts and festivals in our area.

The first one makes me laugh because when John & I were first dating we used to do that all the time...we'd make a nice big dinner together and then we'd get hammered on wine and slow dance on the balcony lol

If the kids are away Everton and I love to cook dinner together, and drink wine of course, and then we also love to dance with each other. I guess this would be the cheaper version of my favourite ting to do, lol.
But if it's a date night, hard to find the time for that in my very crazy houshold, damnit, I don't want to cook!!, lol

some examples that we have done are:
(we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival, an authentic Japanese street food restaurant, looked up interesteding facts about Japan (like we found out that the country produces NO natural resources) and watched a documentary about Japanese culture)
(went to see a live band (Alo Brasil) they are awesome - it is like Samba and Carnival with amazing music, went to a Brazilian steakhouse for dinner and watched a show about Brazilian food on TV)
there are so many possibilities with this one....
