With over 15 wineries in the Sunnyslope Wine Region, there is ample opportunity to taste local wines and enjoy an evening in the rolling hills of Caldwell. During the spring and summer months, Ste. Chapelle hosts live music on their property for customers to enjoy! Other wineries, like Williamson Vineyards and Hat Ranch, host monthly paint & sip, trivia, and lots of other activities to occupy your Friday night!

If you’re looking for tasty appetizers or a quick bite, stop by Casa Anejo, Twisted Fig, or Stewart’s Bar & Grill to satisfy that early evening hunger.
Dinner, Movies, and Bowling
For that classic, 80s date night feel, look no further than the Luxe Reel Theater at the Indian Creek Plaza. With reclinable, comfortable seats and the best popcorn around, it is the best place to see the newest releases.
If you’d rather be a bit more active on your night out, stop by Caldwell Bowl and show off your skills! Grab snacks, a bite to eat, and spend the evening at the alley!
And to extend the length of your evening, feel free to go window shopping or grab a bite to eat while you’re at the plaza. World-class dining, like that found at Chop Shop and Amano, is sure to impress your date or friends, especially if you follow the recommendations of the talented chefs at these locations.
To see if you and your date are truly written in the stars, go to The College of Idaho’s Whittenberger Planetarium to take a look into space. With rotating exhibits and shows, you can learn more about our solar system and have a romantic night stargazing from the comfort of the indoors.
For other options, be sure to check the Indian Creek Plaza and Destination Caldwell social media accounts and event calendars. There are several festivals throughout the year, like our Cinco de Mayo Celebration, Wild West Brewfest, Indian Creek Festival, and Winter Wonderland that provide you a built-in date night.
During the summer months, you can also count on our Farm to Fork Farmer’s Market and Tuesday’s on the Creek live music to give you a mid-week option for any friends or significant others.
Local wineries are also always hosting tasting events, festivals, and other activities to welcome you onto their properties. From Peaceful Belly’s Persephone Festival in March to Barrel Tastings at Indian Creek Winery, there is always free events for you and your friends to attend.
