Amplify Love: September 2015 Date Nights in Portland, Oregon

Portland Date Ideas | Amplified Good Positive Psychology Coaching and Counseling in Portland

So you think you've run out of great date night ideas?  Never fear, here are a few ideas you might have overlooked to keep the late summer fun in your romantic life:

OMSI Star Parties at Rooster Rock (FREE)

Get yourself and your sweetie to the last two of this season's Start Parties to celebrate the Autumn Equinox (Sept 19) or the total lunar eclipse coming up (September 27).  Wear something warm (its gonna be outside) and bring a flashlight (it's gonna be dark out).  Oh, and it's free.

Summer Movie Nights at Pix Patisserie

The beer garden opens at 7 and movies start around 9.  With just a $5 purchase you and your sweetie can spend the night watching James Bond 9September 9), Animal House (September 16), Good Fellas (Sept 23), or Wild (Sept 30).  Wear layers- it's outside and could get chilly.  Or maybe that's an excuse to cuddle closer...

Sunday Parkways Tilikum Crossing

Don't miss your last chance to cycle with an entire neighborhood in Portland.  Pack a picnic basket and sweet treats and take your sweetheart for a ride.  

Vegan Beerfest

This one might be costly, but at $25-65 for tickets you get a heck of a lot of fun for the two of you: chalk walls, cornhole, giant Jenga, kombucha, food carts, and craft fairs... almost guaranteeing a good time! 

Rose City Rollers

One of the best parts of the weather turning colder is the rise of roller derby in Portland.  If you would rather stay indoors for your date night, check out a bout and cheer your team (September 18, 19, and 20, tickets are $14-20)

AIDS Walk Portland

If you want to support a great cause and get outdoors for the last sunny days of summer join me at Portland AIDS Walk 2015.  Walk 2.4 miles and then celebrate with other walkers at the beer garden. 

Edgefield Summer Concerts on the Lawn

If you put off buying concert tickets to one of the awesome outdoor shows in town this summer don't worry- there's still time to get tickets to either Brandi Carlile (Sept. 11) or Empire of the Sun (Sept 18).  Wander the beautiful gardens at Edgefield all day and then join the crowd on the lawn for great music under the stars.  Bring a low lawn chair or a blanket- ot does get chilly after the sun goes down.
