In Toronto there are some wonderful and fun things to do for dates that can bump an average night up several notches. If you have a spare date evening and you want to do something different here is a fun plan just for you!
Start your night out at Rodney's Oyster Bar on King Street. It's a pretty rough and tumble environment, but the oysters are amazing and it's a very open and social place. You can show up in a fancy dress and saddle up to the bar for few oysters, or wear jeans and spend the evening here, so don't let this place set the tone for your outfit. Wear what you want and enjoy the adventure of eating shucked oysters while sipping champagne. The oysters are so fresh and wonderful, not to mention an aphrodisiac!
After your oyster adventure head out to the Davisville LCBO (liquor store). It may seem like a bit of a strange spot, but the historic building has a gorgeous tasting room where you can sample some divine wines in a beautiful environment. Make sure you each sample different wines and share them...it's a nice romantic thing to do and you get to learn something too! But beware, there's a limit of two samples per person and the tasting room closes at 8pm, so try to show up at 7 so you’re not rushed.
To end your evening go to the bar at Scaramouche. As a part of the fancy (and pricey) restaurant the bar is a more casual (i.e. fun) environment with the same gorgeous views as Scaramouche and phenomenal foods. There some fantastic mains here but if you want something lighter the asparagus, buffalo mozzarella and pesto salad is simply divine.
As you wind down the evening sip a desert wine and look over the city...it's the perfect way to end a fun and adventurous date, which depending on what you eat, doesn't have to cost a fortune.
