Grape and Grain Exchange

After dinner, many people would choose a good place for wine and cocktails. If this is you, then you can continue your date night at Grape and Grain Exchange. The name speaks for itself. These wines are classic and made with the best vineyard grapes. And their cocktails are class too! Some of their choices include the French cocktail. It’s a mix of gin, lime, Vermont, and sweet sugar!

After dinner, you might want to enjoy a nice cocktail. At Sidecar, you’re going to have plenty of options. You and your significant other will love their drinks which include a plethora of options for beer too! It’s a part of V Pizza, which means there’s a food menu right around the corner for you if you want snacks as well!

Marble Slab Creamery

How about something sweet? Hopefully, you’ll have room for dessert! Marble Slab is a go-to for many people in the San Marco area who have a strong sweet tooth or just want to enjoy something fun! We love the Peanut Butter Chocolate Overload cake. And it’s not just any cake…it’s an ice cream cake! With a soft chocolate base, it has ice cream in the middle and it’s filled with peanuts, sprinkles, and cookies! They also sell classic cupcakes just in case you want a smaller dessert.

Mayday Ice Cream San Marco

We love handcrafted ice cream! If you decide to end your date with a great dessert, Mayday is an excellent choice. It’s not the regular, chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla flavors, but flavors that will have you scream for ice cream!  Mayday sells a delicious coffee-flavored ice cream called “Coffee and Donuts”. It’s made from Kookaburra Coffee and it includes chopped pieces of glazed doughnuts!
