Date Night (plan ahead):

Queen's Feast is back!  Charlotte Restaurant Week starts Jan 21 through the 30th.  Over 100 restaurants around town are participating and each will be offering a 3-course, prix fixe dinner menu for $30.  You and your honey can choose that pricey spot finally and enjoy an inexpensive dinner.  Or just go to one of your trusty date spots and enjoy 3 courses instead of just one.  

I am giving you the heads up this week because most places fill up fast so you want to make reservations in advance!  For a list of restaurants and more information go here.

Winter Programs:
These programs are not free but they are reasonably priced and offer your kid(s) an activity once a week for the next couple of months.  Most of these programs are getting underway in the next couple of weeks but you can still get a spot if you sign up quickly.
