Oh no! It’s date night and you don’t have a date set up! Don’t worry, we’ve got the whole night planned out for you.
1. Try a Seahawks donut at Top Pot
Start off the date by sharing your mutual adoration of the Seahawks at Top Pot Doughnuts. Every fall, Top Pot makes hand-forged sprinkled doughnuts decked out in Seahawks blue and green. Get one to share, or buy two, and make your way over to the Bellevue Arts Museum.
2. See half life-size plastic army men at BAM
What would the toys of our youth look like if they grew up with us? That’s what artist Nathan Vincent explores in his latest work displayed at BAM, Let’s Play War! After you and your date have contemplated our country’s shaky relationship with war, walk on over to Bake’s Place for dinner!
3. Dinner and music at Bake’s Place
Named the “Best new 2014 Restaurant” by 425 Magazine, Bake’s Place is a guaranteed great spot for dinner. With nightly live music and food made from fresh local ingredients, Bake’s Place is the perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner. If you’re in the mood for dessert, Jcoco Couture Chocolates is just down the road.
4. Fashionable food – jcoco couture chocolates
Described as a “remarkable new line of American couture chocolate,” jcoco’s chocolates don’t just taste good—you’ll look good eating them, too. Stop by their shop or order some online so you can have them ready for your journey to the other side of the lake.
5. Capture a skyline photo of Bellevue from across the Lake
Finally, end your night with a little bit of adventure. Pull out your camera (or camera phone) and try to find the best angle of the city that you can! Whether the sun is up, or if Bellevue’s lights are glowing in the night, you’ll be sure to capture some beautiful images. Better than that, you’ll have captured a beautiful night with your loved one.
