Date Night: Cooking Class

Aug. 18 | Sur La Table & Main Course Cooking

Do something fun for date night this weekend. Instead of going out to dinner, try a cooking class where you can make your cake and eat it too. A number of restaurants, grocery stores and cooking schools offer couples classes, but here are a couple that still have spots available this weekend. A Grecian evening at Sur la Table, and steak night at Main Course Cooking school, whose classes benefit Houston Restaurant Weeks. 

From $45 per person.
