There’s nothing sexier than someone with brains and a quick wit, right? Check out these date night ideas to appeal to your and your partner’s intellectual side.

  • Test your trivia skills and compete against others at various bars around town on their Geeks Who Drink nights.
  • Check out Empire Board Game Library where you can play different board games (they have over 500) for only $3/hour per adult.
  • Get lost together in good books and browse a bookstore together. One of our favorites in town is Bookworks.
  • Do you love solving riddles and clues? Try out an escape room for a thrilling date night. There are many in town, such as New Mexico Escape Room or Bust Out Escape Room.

As parents, we take our kids to do a lot of fun things around town. However, it’s not always fun for us, especially if you have a cranky, sleepy kid in tow. Ditch the kids and get playful with your spouse with these suggestions.

One of our favorite things about living in Albuquerque is that we are surrounded by the most beautiful landscape. Enjoy the natural beauty with your partner and plan a date outdoors to truly enjoy the enchantment.

Whether you are headed out for a quick drink or extending your date night, enjoying a libation is a great, low-stress way to spend some quality time together. Albuquerque has tons of fantastic, local places to imbibe.
