Going out can be hard as a couple, especially as a parents where factors like childcare, time and not feeling exhausted come into the mix. On top of that, you also want to make sure that you do something fun and different during your precious time together.
Last weekend the Momtrends team (Sherri and Serena) were sent out on dates in NYC to enjoy the experiences offered on the premier online dating and couples website, HowAboutWe. What started as a dating site has now expanded to HowAboutWe for Couples, a website that focuses on ways to help people stay in love with dates that cater to various interests with a diverse range of offerings such as a Thai Massage Workshop, All The Tastes of New York Tour, and Private Chocolate Making & Cocoa Class and much more!

Sherri: After previewing the selection, which was fun to do together, we decided on the Five Course Tasting at Noir for a relaxing evening in a sophisticated atmosphere with fine cuisine. We loved how How About We handled every detail from time and date to my vegetarian cuisine needs. We were thrilled with the food and had a lovely time conversing without kids.
We loved being surrounded in Noirs deco grandeur as we enjoyed handcrafted cocktails and savored five dishes by Noirs Michelin-starred chef. Most importantly, they were prompt and courteous. After dinner, it was fun to unwind in the swanky lounge where we enjoyed champagne, and even better each other's company.
Serena:We love to cook but at home it seems that we always cook the same 4-5 things every week. So I was thrilled when I saw the pasta making class at Spina offered on HowAboutWe for Couples. Upon arrival we were introduced to Chef Joe who spoke to our group about the history of pasta. He then showed us how to make basil pasta using a Cusinart, and then we were put to work to make homemade pasta. Using flour, eggs, salt, pepper (I made a black pepper one), we learned how to make a well, knead and shape our dough. My husband and I had a blast doing this part as we were laughing at how hard it actually was to knead and shape the dough - he was even sweating during this process!
After our hard work, Chef Joe showed us a pasta shaping machine and how the dough transforms into pasta. This includes an explanation of the different sizes and shapes. After our lesson, we sat down to eat. My husband ordered the orchette with lamb and I had the cavaitlle with broccoli rabe with some red wine. After learning about the art of pasta making, it was incredible to understand and taste what goes into this beloved food. We finished the meal with some homemade tiramisu - full and happy to enjoy this fun and unique experience together. We also went home with the dough we made and a recipe sheet so we can make pasta like this at home. I loved that I was able to spend time with my husband in a unique way and learn something. It was so cool to enjoy an experience that I normally wouldnt on a typical night out.
What we loved: Date nights are not always easy to plan, but the beauty of HowAboutWe for Couples allows couples to find curates dates that cater to your interests as well as offer something fun and different to make going out a fresh and exciting experience. As parents, this can be often be the same thing every time you go out, but with HowAboutWe for Couples you can discover cool dates like Watch a Film While Cycling Indoors, Judge a Cocktail Competition, Couples Artisanal Glass Blowing and so much more! We loved that this means a new experience every time you go out for an incredible value. We also love that the details are all taken care where you simply have to go online, pick out a date and book it. For a unique, memorable and exciting night out, we recommend HowAboutWe for Couples as a way to enjoy each other's company as well as experience truly fun and curated dates.
