So you’ve gotten yourself in the doghouse. It doesn’t matter what you did (in fact we’d rather not know), all that matters is getting yourself out. What to do when your puppy dog eyes just aren’t working? That’s where we come in the picture. This is the time to pull out all the stops. Spoil your significant other with flowers, jewelry, and a perfectly planned evening out that truly captures your remorse.

Avec Contemporary French Bistro

There’s something about France that screams romance. So if you’re not able to fly your lady to Paris for the week why not bring the city of love to you? Order the duck confit, or bouillabaisse with a couple glasses of french wine and she’ll be back to telling you “j’adore” in no time. 

Brava Bistro

Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2012, this is the place to take your lady so she can drown her anger in some impeccable vino. Tantalize your taste buds with the crispy cracklin chicken and you’ll both be saying “fight, what fight?”

The Flower Basket

DO NOT, we repeat do not show up to your date empty handed. And do not just stop by the closest grocery store to grab a wilting bouquet. This is the time to impress! The Flower Basket is a floral design company in Calgary that creates beautiful arrangements for any occasion. Go all out and impress your date with your impeccable taste. 

Kensington Riverside Inn

If the magnitude of this fight resembles that of hurricane sandy, you’re going to need more than flowers and dinner. Book a night at the Kensington Riverside Inn for a romantic stay-cation. With only 19 rooms it’s the perfect intimate place to go to reconnect and relax. Order the romance package, and have your room prepped with rose petals, champagne, and a delicious chocolate treat upon your arrival. 

Newbury Spa

Fighting with your significant other is a huge pain in the neck. Release some of that tension by treating her (and yourself) to a couples massage. Or maybe she needs to blow of some steam on her own.. Plan a full day of solo pampering and we promise by the time you meet up again she’ll be whistling a different tune.

Tiffany and Co.

If you’re planning on dropping a major bomb on your significant other, you better drop some major cash as damage control. Look at it as relationship insurance. It’s an investment! While we don’t know her personally, we can almost guarantee that anything that arrives in a blue box will help turn her frown upside down. 

Vero Bistro

Voted the most romantic dining spot in Calgary, it’s the perfect place to take your date for some damage control. Vero means true in italian, so what better way to show her you are truly sorry. Try the hand rolled sweet potato gnocchi or cozy up with one of their sharing platters for two.


Flowers are beautiful, but you can’t eat them, or at least you shouldn’t. If you have some making up to do, take your date to the Fiasco Gelato Academy. You and your date will have the chance to get hands-on as you make your own custom flavor of gelato or sorbetto. During the class, you’ll be treated to two glasses of wine or beer, plus charcuterie. And if that wasn’t enough, at the end of the evening, you’ll take home four pints of your custom flavor – The date that keeps on giving.
