Staycation Date Night Edition
Often times as parents we get caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of #MomLife and forget how our kids actually got here. I'm so guilty and I know I'm not alone, so going forward I'm making an effort to date my husband! Thanks to our amazing friends at the AC Hotel, JoColby and I were able to get away from the kids and focus on ourselves. We checked into this amazing hotel located in the North Hills Area of Raleigh on Friday night.
Everyone at the hotel was so helpful and gracious to have us stay. After checking in, I spotted some cool local snacks they had available, I love that the feature local businesses.
After checking in we headed to our room to drop off our bags. I loved that the room was so chic and I truly appreciate the floors. I seriously dread hotel carpets because of how dirty the are! This room made me feel at home, the modern floor plan as well as the all around feel was a plus in my book.
After checking out the roomwe headed upstairs to Level 7 Rooftop Bar for cocktails and tapas.
I never really drink but tonight I wanted something sweet with a little tang. So I tried the infamous Midtown Margarita and boy was it a treat! The toasted Citrus Salmon was absolutely delicious. But the crisp potato wedges OMG so yummy. JoColby really enjoyed the roasted wings. I highly recommend getting several tapas and sharing them you will be full in no time.
The atmosphere at Level 7 was great, everyone was enjoying their company, drinks and the game. This would be a great alternative to going out. I'm always looking for a fun locations for date night or just hanging with your crew.
After drinks, amazing tapas and lots of laughs we took an Uber to downtown Raleigh.
After several recommendations we ended up at the Boxcar Arcade this was the perfect place, it was like a flashback to my childhood!
JoColby and I played games until we couldn't hang anymore! Everything from PacMan, Tetris, Mario, Ping pong the list goes on, and not to mention PopCorn... which I actually didn't eat because of my OCD We didn't stay out too long because the way our bodies are set up.... we got tired from dinner and cocktails. Once we got back too the room we decided to watch a movie and boy were we in for a surprise when we saw that we could sign into Netflix!
I can't thank the AC Hotel enough for such an amazing and relaxing stay! Boy did we need some alone time and we were refreshed the next morning to pick up the kids and have family day! The next time you're looking for a hotel please book with AC Hotel it's the perfect place for a staycation, getaway or family travel! Trust me you won't be disappointed. Until next time.....
