  • You've just told your loved one that you have a surprise for them, and their excitement is palpable. You guide them to the car, grinning as they continue to ask questions that you don't answer. After a short drive, you pull up to an iconic concert venue, and their face lights up with delighted surprise. Once inside, you both enjoy the magic of live music, swaying in time to the rhythm and making unforgettable memories.
  • By the end of the night, you're both lost in the music, having connected over new songs and the electric atmosphere of the venue. You're both covered in soft concert lighting, enjoying each other's company, and having the time of your lives.
  • After the performance, you take a leisurely walk outside, discussing your favorite songs from the set. You've managed to create a wonderful memory together, and the sounds of the night create a romantic backdrop for your journey home.

Preparation steps:

  • To prepare for this date, you would first need to purchase tickets to a concert happening in Washington, DC. However, the point is to not tell your date who the band or artist is. The surprise in this date is the unknown artist they're going to see. Therefore, try to have a wide music taste - the surprise could be anything from a jazz performance to an indie band showcase.
  • Ensure both you and your partner are ready for an indoor venue, so dress appropriately. Keep the ticket stubs afterwards for a sweet memory token of your date.
  • Remember, the objective is to create a surprising and fun experience. So even if the music isn't exactly to your taste, embrace the atmosphere, stay positive and make the most of it.

Some tips:

  • Try to ascertain in a non-obvious way what kind of music your date is into. This can help make sure the surprise act is something they will enjoy.
  • Make sure to arrive early at the venue to get good seats. Also, venues often have bars or food available for purchase, so plan to have dinner or drinks there to make it a complete night out.
  • Bring a camera along to capture the memories of the night. But remember to respect the venue's and the band's policies about recordings and pictures during the performance.
