Those Summer Nights

The days may last longer, but once the sun goes down, it's time to get up, grab your special someone and engage in some summer fun. We’ve got five date ideas for you to try this weekend.

Strike out—in the good way!

1. Outdoor Dinner and a Movie
With Cabbagetown Park’s greens as your comfy seat and fine Atlanta food trucks as your concession stand, enjoy warm evenings with Food, Flicks and Fun, sponsored by Sweet Cheats and Wag-A-Lot. Three’s not a crowd this time—both your date and your dog are welcome on the picnic blanket. First and third Fri., 8pm, 692 Kirkwood Ave. SE

2. Kitchen Courtship
Take a stab at cooking a meal together with Sur la Table’s Date Night classes.

Select days in July, from $79, 3500 Peachtree Road, 404.973.3371,

3. Mix It Up
Cause a stir of your own at the National Bartending School of Atlanta’s two-hour intro mixology class. Get hands-on while mixing and muddling your way to the perfect Cosmo, mojito or margarita. Fri. and Sat., $89 per couple, 2094 Cobb Parkway SE, 770.916.1252,

4. Hole-In-One
Rev up your relationship with a little healthy competition at Pirate’s Cove The Original Adventure Golf, which offers half-price mini golf and a little medieval magic for you and your date to get lost in as you face off for 27 holes. Mon.-Thu., 4-6pm, from $8, 3380 Venture Pkwy., 770.623.4184,
