Date Night - April 25

If you’re looking for the perfect place to take your special someone, neighbor Stephanie Burgard knows just the place: Pinot’s Palette.

“It’s a great date night because it’s really easy,” Burgard, who is the owner of Pinot’s Palette franchise in Lakewood, says. “All you have to do is bring food. We serve wine and everything else is taken care of. Women really like it, so the men get a lot of kudos for bringing their girlfriends or wives.”

Which is probably why Pinot’s Palette won Advocate’s Best Of Date Night contest in Lakewood-East Dallas.

For those who’ve never tried it, the artists (and artist wannabes) meet at the Pinot’s Palette studio in Hillside Village at Mockingbird and Abrams, where they are provided with a blank canvas and all the materials they’ll need, and then they’re shown step-by-step how to paint a selected painting, which can be viewed on the website beforehand.

“It’s something to do other than go the movies,” Burgard explains.

And people who aren’t artists don’t need to be concerned because Bugard says it’s “more about having fun and entertainment than the painting” anyways. “It’s about art, but it’s more about hanging out, eating and drinking with friends or a date,” she says.

Pinot’s Palette has weekly events and monthly events — like date night, paint your pet night or family day — and it also hosts private parties. During most date night events, couples paint one painting that uses two canvases and both paint half. The next date night event is coming up on April 25.

A fun bonding experience for couples (and with groups of friends) is taking painting classes together. Bring a bottle of wine if you’d like and enjoy a class to express your artistic side. Pinot’s Palette in Dallas offers a variety of classes for all levels, so no painting experience is needed.
