When you hear the term “date night,” what’s the first thing that pops into your head? Dinner and a movie? Drinks? A show? Well, what if you did something a little off the beaten path while also making use of the amenities your apartment community has to offer? It’s the apartment date night, and we’re here with some suggestions for how to make it happen.

Hit the trails

Residents of Griffis Pine Avenue can head to the leasing office and check out a cruiser from the community’s bike studio. From there it’s only a short pedal to the Shoreline bike path, which gives you over 7 miles of things to do. Take a picnic lunch to the beach, stop off at the Long Beach Museum of Art, or head into Belmont Brewing for a beer.

Game time

Griffis Belltown is equipped with everything you need for a fun indoor/outdoor game date. For your outdoor event, take advantage of the bocce ball court. And when the weather starts to cool down, head inside to the art room or game room to continue the competition.

Catch a flick

Looking for an inexpensive date night at Griffis Cherry Creek? Rent out the media room and pop in a DVD or watch a game. You could even bring a plate of cheese and charcuterie, and a bottle of wine to make it a fun, upscale movie night.

Celebrate up high

The outdoor terrace at Griffis South Waterfront offers a wonderful setting to celebrate a milestone or low-key Valentine’s day. Just add a bottle of champagne and some fine chocolates, and you’re set for a beautiful night among the stars.

Fire it up

Make use of the outdoor BBQ area at Griffis SoCo and cook dinner together. Try this grilled pork tenderloin recipe and check out this article from GQ for some other date night grilling suggestions. When your done, head over to the nearby firepit with some s’mores fixin’s for dessert.
