Here in cow town we love our country music… And country singer Joe Nichols says it best “hang up that red dress, let down your hair, cancel those reservations, there’s no need to go nowhere.” Whether it’s the crazy unpredictable weather or a long week at work, sometimes the best dates involve kicking back and relaxing in the comfort of your own home. But staying home doesn’t need to be dull, nor does it mean you actually need to cook. Who does that anymore? Grab a bottle of vino and a delicious meal on your way home then get cozy for the rest of the evening. The following places all offer delicious grub to go! Sweat pants not included.
A night in is not complete without a good bottle of merlot! Friendly staff and an extensive selection they are certain to have just what you’re looking for. Frequent the spot enough and you might even become a wine connoisseur yourself!
The cellar is another cool specialty wine store located on Stephen’s Avenue. If you’re not in a huge hurry to get home, they offer free wine tastings and endless expertise to ensure you’re making the right choice for your special date in. Why not stock up while you’re there? You get 10% off a case and free delivery to your doorstep when you spend $100!
Community Natural Foods
Community is always serving up the best in organic, local, nutritious, and tasty treats! Stop by the community cafe and grab something from their pizza station, burrito bar, salad bar, or sandwich menu. Wash it down with a couple bottles of kombucha and you’re set for a healthy night in!
Notable is amazing not only for a fun night out but also a mellow evening in. Their take-out menu is slightly different than their dining in menu, but equally delicious. Why wait weeks for a reservation when you can grab a free range half-chicken with vegetables or their East Coast scallops with grilled romaine hearts, bacon, and caper dressing to go!
Sunterra offers a variety of to go foods including pasta, lasagna, whole chickens, fresh salads etc… Or pick up a “Friday Night Feast for Two” which includes two salads, two entrees, and two desserts!
Una Pizza + Wine
Can you ever go wrong with pizza & wine? We think not. All their pizzas are available for take-out as well as most other menu items. Our personal favourites? The proscuitto served with arugula or the 4-maggi drizzled with warm truffle honey. Order the kale caesar salad and a pizza or two for you and your date to share. That’s amore!
