A study released last year proved what common wisdom held to be true — date nights make for happier marriages. What the study didn’t tell us was how to plan fun and affordable ones.

Thankfully, planning a successful date night with your spouse doesn’t require a love concierge. With the following summer deals around the Valley, all you need is a couple hours and $20-$50.

• For a quiet tête-à-tête, try Salut Kitchen Bar in Tempe, where, after 8 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday evenings, $20 will buy you a bottle of wine and a make-your-own-s’mores platter (pictured) complete with graham crackers, Hershey’s chocolate, marshmallows and a small flame for roasting. More information is available at (480) 625-3600 or

• Looking for something more rousing? Head to Stand-Up, Scottsdale to see comedians like Mo Mandel, Theo Von and Tom Segura, among others. Show tickets are only $10-$15, so you’ll still have some shekels to enjoy a cold beverage or nosh on pub goodies. You can check times and performer schedules at

• Movie-loving guys and gals should consider Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill’s Monday movie deal. For $24.95 you and your sweetie can get a fresh brick oven pizza, two soft drinks and two movie tickets to Harkins Theatre at Tempe Marketplace. Go to for more info.

• If none of those sound exciting, why not give bowling a try? AMF Lanes is offering a $34.95 Summer Pass that allows four adults (double-date night anyone?) to bowl up to two games a day for the remainder of the summer (shoe rental not included). Go to to purchase a pass.
