The comfy stage of any relationship is the best. You know, the point where you can wear your grungiest clothing, have stringy hair, and your dorkiest glasses and you don’t care? My boyfriend and I are at this point now, and I love it.
Except sometimes I miss the beginning when we always dressed to impress each other and every outing together was memorable (home dates in sweatpants tend to be interchangeable). When we make the effort to plan something special, we transform into the shinier new couple we used to be.
Fortunately, two upcoming events that celebrate the best of local drink and food promise to be evenings of fun for you and your sweetie. And, if you’re single, you’ll have the chance to mingle with people who just might turn into future dates.
