The BackFatLor x Benchmark
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
You’ll be clutching your stomachs with laughter and thanking your lucky stars for each other as you watch four wildly funny, professional and single comedians battle it out for an all-expenses-paid date with a hot bachelor (courtesy of idk tonight). Like a mashup of Last Comic Standing and The Bachelor, The BackFatLor is exactly the kind of quality entertainment you want to be consuming with your partner for a Valentine’s Day that’s full of big, hearty laughs, and the happy appreciation that all you ever have to do is enjoy watching dating shows rather than competing in them. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door, but $6 with the code IDKTONIGHT. Bonus: our very own founder Jordan Scott, and her fiancé Nick are the judging panel, so it’s a show that you, as lovers of love and doing love things, surely don’t want to miss. Tickets can be purchased here.
Then, keep the fun going with a trip to Benchmark, a New American restaurant sourcing meat only from pasture-raised animals and using locally-grown produce when possible. If love’s got you in a carnivorous mood, try the ribeye or the filet mignon, or go a bit lighter with the ahi tuna or the roasted acorn squash. And, don’t forget to grab a cocktail or two to round out your evening at this lovely date spot.
