To help mitigate growing health concerns, all local restaurants have been ordered to close their dining facilities with the option to continue delivery and curbside pickup services. All indoor recreational facilities have also been asked to close their doors including, bars, salons, and gymnasiums. For a full list of local businesses offering curbside pickup, delivery services, and online shopping check out our list here. 

Candlelit Dinner for Two

Need a few options for a romantic dinner for two? We suggest Abel Brown to pair with a bottle of pinot noir or Frog & the Hen for a southern comfort meal (paired with sweet tea, of course). 

Wait, what about the candlelight? No date would be complete without that romantic ambience we all love. Set the mood for your special night in by ordering a few floral candles from Augusta Candle Company

ProTip: Check out our list of restaurants offering curbside or drive-thru pickup!

Just Me-N-U Cooking: Pass the Butter, Hun!

Nothing beats a date-night at home that allows you to whip up something together in the kitchen. If you’re stumped on which mouth-watering recipe to choose, we’ve got the perfect cheat sheet. Purchase your very own cookbook from local chef and culinary legend Vera Stewart online to get started in the kitchen. Need a quick online recipe? Try her famous chicken pot pie tonight.

Sunset Spirits

After a long day of working and learning at-home, decompress by watching a beautiful sunset and enjoy a quaranitini with spirits from 2nd City Distilling Co.

Paint & Sip: Augusta Style

Nothing says love like getting creative with an at-home sip & paint party. Put an Augusta twist on this special night by recreating one of our Augusta murals.

All paint, no sip!? Don’t forget to swing by Bodega Ultima in Surrey Center to grab a bottle of wine for all your sipping needs. If you’re really wanting to make this date one to remember, swing by Finch & Fifth for a charcuterie board to pair. They make it too easy; as both of these locations are offering curbside delivery.

ProTip: Not the DaVinci in your family? AR Workshop is letting you buy a bundled craft kit available for curbside pickup that includes paint, primers, brushes and more!
