Date Duos

It has been a dream to live in Richmond. I am from Pennsylvania and I knew finding a teaching job would be difficult. I wanted to keep my options open and I was willing to move to find a job. As fate would allow, I ended up scoring a teaching position near Richmond. I am so blessed it led me to this amazing state and city.

One thing my husband and I enjoy are Friday night date nights. We love hitting up a winery or happy hour then having dinner at a local joint. It is a way for us to decompress after a long week. We set our phones aside and just chat about the week. I would like to feature our favorite dates and spots around Richmond. Every week I plan on highlighting two of our favorite spots:)


Toast has been one of our favorites for the longest. We love happy hours that extend until 7PM. Zach doesn’t get off of work until 5:30 so by the time we get to our spot it’s usually 6. I love how they have wine on tap and the $4 price during happy hour can’t be beat! Zach and I usually split an appetizer. Our favorites are the bacon brussels and the shrimp and crab nachos. I love so many entree salads and meals. I am a meatloaf lover so I love the meal as well as the sandwich. Do yourself a favor and get the parmesan truffle fries.


Sparkling Cava and Oreo Cake

It is by far our favorite dessert spot in RVA. Any celebration or random Thursday calls for Shyndigz. It is essentially a dessert bar. They have a rotating menu and an amazing selection of beer, wine (JRC wine too!) and specialty cocktails. I typically get their boozy coffee since it pairs so well with cake!

There you have it, two of our favorite date spots! I can’t wait to feature even more:)

Cheers, Paige
