See Local Live Music
Hit your local dive bars for live local bands. Most don't even charge a cover, so free to get in and your only expense would be your drinks if so inclined. It's a great chance to listen to local talent, and even bring another couple along for a fun double date.
Play Board Games
We often get so caught up in life that we forget about the fun basics like sitting down together and challenging each other to a game of chess, Monopoly, or the risqué strip poker when the kids are away. Enjoy a bit of competitive spirit while laughing together as a couple. I have a huge list of our favorite board games.

I love at home movie nights with hubby! We can get in our PJs and be all comfy! Many times we have fallen asleep on the couch no need to worry about dressing up too!
We frequently do home movie night–like almost every Friday. And we often do a game night! Some nights, I will read aloud one or two chapters of a really good book–my family loves it, but you have to be a good reader–not monotone.
