Date night adventures Lake Charles,La - September 2015Please tell me I am not the only one in shock at how fast this year is flying by? I am blessed to have friends from all over the United States, and it is such a tease to see that they are already posting photos of autumn leaves on social media! All the same, I am so thankful to welcome September this year and hopefully some cooler weather for the Lake Area very soon. As the weather gets a little less warm (or ridiculously hot), we have compiled some great date night adventures for you all to get out and participate in this month!

1. Beginning Watercolor by Theresa Dewey – Okay, I’ll admit I’m an artist at heart so these opportunities to get creative stick out to me! This opportunity in particular sounds like a fun way to get creative with no pressure as local artist, Theresa Dewey, gives a beginning introduction into watercolor. If you aren’t usually an artistic couple, this is a great way to step out of your usual “box” and try something new together!

When – Recurring weekly on Tuesdays, upcoming dates September 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
Where – Gallery by the Lake – 106 West Pryce St, Lake Charles, LA

2. McNeese Faculty/Guest Artists Series: Lina Morita, piano and Lin He, violin – For a relaxing weekday evening date, why don’t you and your favorite someone stop by McNeese to catch a piano and violin performance? I am always so impressed by musicians. I know they spend hours upon hours practicing and perfecting their craft, but it still blows me away to watch them perform in person! This seems like the perfect date to follow up with a dinner date out on the town.
