Small town with a street in the foreground

Tired of date night ending up with you frustrated because you had trouble hearing in an excessively noisy restaurant? Ready for a date night that you can enjoy?

Start the evening off with a delicious Italian dinner at Milano’s II right off Murfreesboro’s downtown square. This historic space provides a quieter environment so you can participate in the conversation. Soft music like Frank Sinatra enhances the ambiance rather than being an obstacle to communication. If you have room after dinner, try the blueberry cheesecake – you won’t be disappointed!

Walk down the street to Center for the Arts to see a live production with some extremely talented local actors. Stay after the show ends to meet them!

Take a stroll around the square popping in to make a purchase or just window shop and enjoy each other’s company. The lights and landscape make you forget you are in a bustling city. If you haven’t had dessert (or why not, have a second one!) head over to Hattie Jane’s for a scoop of ice cream made with local Tennessee dairy or try a dairy-free scoop like strawberry jam coconut. If ice cream’s not your thing, a few feet away is Simply Pure Sweets where you can find sweet treats like French macarons or a red velvet cream pie.

Any or all of these, in any order you desire would be a fun evening out with your better half. Be sure to clean your hearing aids before you leave the house to ensure you hear your best on your date in Murfreesboro’s downtown square.
