Yes, we called them date-night ideas, but let’s be honest: you don’t need a date to treat yourself to any of these activities. We know that many of you continue to daydream about going out to a movie or for dinner and drinks; in the mean time, here are five ways to enjoy a few of your favourite BoQ experiences from home.
Settle in for a cozy night of — friendly, we hope — competition. If you’ve grown bored of playing Monopoly for the thousandth time, order a new game from Scalliwag Toys on the recently-launched Downtown District Online Marketplace .
We’ve seen Matt DeMille sharing some videos of easy meals at home like falafel, fish & chips and some seriously good cheesy bread. Okay okay, and maybe some cinnamon rolls or an apple crostata because we love our sweets.
Dig into a lasagna from Lola’s Cafe, some charcuterie and cheese from Trenton Delicatessen or an incredible Indian feast from Royal Haveli. We even made a food and drink map of places that are still cooking up your favourite dishes for delivery or takeout across the BoQ.
Don’t underestimate the joy that some colourful blooms can provide. Surprise your significant other, roommate or yourself — “Oh, you shouldn’t have!” — with a bright, spring-y bouquet from Blush Floral by Carrie or Dahlia May Flower Farm.
