Daily life has most certainly changed in recent weeks. Since mid-March, many people have taken to self-isolating at home and spending exorbitant amounts of time with their partner or family inside the same four walls. Though sometimes it can feel daunting there is one way to spice things up, and that’s by hosting a lavish date night at home. Need help planning? Don’t worry, Red Lobster has your back.

Red Lobster is looking to help people keep the flame alive while socially isolating with all the tools one would need to plan a romantic night at home. This includes new Date Night Deals as well as a few crucial virtual elements – like a customized playlist and unique Zoom backgrounds – to “re-create restaurant magic.”

“Can’t physically be with your loved one? Red Lobster is re-creating the in-restaurant dining experience at home or virtually for those who can’t be together with downloadable Zoom backgrounds,” the restaurant shared in a statement. “What would date night be without some music? Red Lobster has you covered with a curated Spotify playlist that is sure to set the romantic mood.”

The Spotify playlist includes romantic classics from Boys II Men, Beyonce, John Legend, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and many more, to keep the date night going for hours and hours.

As for the virtual backgrounds, those include Red Lobster restaurant backgrounds, an adorable pink “I heart lobster” background, a cute fishing village background, and a few others to choose from in case you’re doing date night from a distance and need to Zoom in together.

And last, but most certainly not least, is the food.

Date night attendees can enjoy a multi-course seafood feast that is easy to order with its To Go service, including curbside pickup.

For the date night, deal diners can choose from thee different options like Lobster Date Night, Surf & Turf Date Night, and theUltimate Date Night. Don’t worry, all the meals come with those Cheddar Bay Biscuits that you’re all really after.
