Just the Two of Us: ‘Date Nite’ at Navy Pier Chicago

September 7, 2011

For all you lovebirds out there that have been to the museums, seen the shows and even the big metal vegetable (ahem, “The Bean”) and think that there’s no place left in Chicago to do a romantic evening for two – we’ve put together an idea for a “Date Nite” at Navy Pier in Chicago.

Knowing the variations of ‘romance’ delivered by spontaneous (or not) members of the dating game, we’ve devised a plan for any member of either gender to achieve a level of romance rarely seen anywhere but the shores of Lake Michigan at Navy Pier in Chicago.

So hold the door for him, hail a cab for her and hold each other’s hand as Navy Pier delivers a ‘Date Nite’ idea worthy of that most special someone…

Riva Crab House at Navy Pier – Melting hearts over seafood…like butter!

Start the evening off right at Riva Crab Houseat Navy Pier, where the greatest selection of seafood in Chicago can be found, with dining room that seems tailor made for intimate conversation and incredible views of Lake Michigan and Chicago.With a full selection of beer, cocktails and wines available and a wait staff that is there to tend to your every need, it’s like taking a trip to a seaside resort without ever leaving Chicago.

After you have rekindled that spark over one of many delicious entrees at Riva Crab House and
perhaps dessert, it’s time to head over to see ‘Murder for Two’ upstairs at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier in Chicago.

‘Murder for Two’ at Chicago Shakespeare Theater – Laugh together until your cheeks hurt!

This zany murder mystery musical begins with the untimely end of a well-known novelist, and Officer Marcus Moscowicz is thrown into a houseful of eccentric and cunning characters, including a wife who is more concerned about stolen ice cream than her murdered husband and a twelve-member boys’ choir that happens to be nine members short.‘Murder For Two’ is guaranteed to make you and your significant other laugh harder than you have in a while, as the entire play comes with a killer twist: one actor investigates the crime, the other plays all 13 suspects, and they both play the piano!

Fireworks at Navy Pier – Lighting up the night with fire…and love!

After the play ends and your cheeks stop hurting from laughing so much, it’s time to head outside for a romantic stroll down the Pier.  If you’ve planned this right, and come down on a Saturday night (at 9 p.m. through Oct. 29), the best part of the evening is about to begin – the spectacular fireworks showat Navy Pier.What could be more intimate and romantic than watching the sky above Navy Pier illuminate with a masterful display of America’s favorite pyrotechnics: fireworks!

With brightly lit blossoms of blue, red and white along with streaming whistlers of every color imaginable, what better time to hold on tight to your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband—and lean in for that kiss and ask yourself—how am I ever going to top this?

A good start would be to do it all over again next week! Don’t forget Navy Pier when looking for romantic things to do in Chicago.
