Looking for great date night plans in Boston?
Check out the details below for my reviews of our latest date night adventures: some food at Scampo, some fun at the Celtic's game and some night-caps at Tip Tap Room!
Jacket: Helmut Lang now 85% off! (Runs small, I would suggest getting one size up.)
Scampo is one of my favorite spots. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is great whether you are out with the girls or just looking for a romantic date night spot.
Either way, Scampo's centrally located bar is a great place to start the night with some good food and drinks. Then you can make your way into the main lobby, which fills up by around 10:00. Once the night wears on, Alibi is located across the hall from Scampo and is a cool, dark, dungeon lounge. During the winter its great because it feels cozy and warm. During the summer, they open up the porch and the fresh air floods through the bar. On Wednesday's during the summer they also do Yappy Hour. I have still never been so stay tuned for a post on that one!
We both ordered the Spicy Tangerine - Don Julio, spices and tangerine juice. Not only was it amazing, but even Keegan was tipsy after one drink - a whole lot of bang for your buck! I got the fried calamari to start and then the Pink Swordfish 'Picata' & Broiled Royale. The fried calamari was good, but nothing to write home about. The Swordfish, however, was amazing. The grilled swordfish sat on a plate of pasta with green olives. A must try!
After Scampo, we went to the Celtics game. It was only a 10 minute walk to The Garden so we were able to enjoy our meal longer. Once we got to the game, they were serving Don Julio margaritas which I had never seen before. I would not recommend as they were pre-mixed drinks on tap so they couldn't control the amount of drink mix that went into the margaritas :( It was very sweet and tasted like fake sugar. Either way, Don Julio is Don Julio and Keegan and I had a blast!
I love the Tip Tap room. It is another local favorite of mine. The food is consistently good and well priced and the beer/cider selection is great.
Thanks for reading!
