Do you need some new date ideas? Want to spend more time with your partner and reconnect? At the Gay Couples Institute, they give you the tools to reconnect at their exciting dating event, Gay Date Night.

"We've created the space for you to [reconnect] over complimentary drinks (alcohol and non-alcoholic) and appetizers, socializing, and prizes from iTunes, Amazon, Starbucks,, Target, dinner for two to Destino and more. You'll also have the option to win more prizes through a humorous new game called "Don't Get Me Started" — a fun way to learn something new about your partner and laugh along the way," stated the Gay Couples Institute on the event page.

The event will be held at Pisco Latin Lounge near the Castro District (1817 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94103) on January 10th, 2014 from 6-7:30pm.

"We've had over 332 couples reconnect with Gay Date Night since 2010. Come join us for some fun and socializing over drinks and appetizers. Open to all gay and lesbian couples. Come join us in 2014 with more fun, more laughs, more giveaways and more connecting!" stated Salvatore Garanzini and Alapaki Yee, the Gay Couples Institute co-founders, on the event page.
