If you want to impress a first (or second or 100th) date, it’s all in the details, gentlemen. You can’t just pull together a romantic candlelight dinner at home with a box of pasta and the two-buck Chuck that’s been sitting on your counter since, oh, 2003.
With a same day delivery option, turn to Datenightdelivery.com and place an order for everything from a fabulous bottle of wine to a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Dust a little flour on your nose, and she’ll never know you didn’t bake ‘em yourself. You can even order some new stemware to replace the sad cracked pieces you inherited from Grandma years ago, a romantic Sade CD (for real), rose petals, a bathrobe and, if you’re feeling particularly lucky, a massage candle. You’ll look like you spent weeks planning, when all you really need is an Internet connection and a credit card.
Date Nite Delivery also has a bricks and mortar address if you’re in the neighborhood: 3754 N. Ashland Ave.; 773-296-2004. And check out their blog for some great recipe ideas.
