“Date Night in the Nonahood” is a new article for Nonahood News to bring you and your significant other new ideas to enjoy a night out together. With new restaurants and activities around every corner, it’s easy to lose track of what’s new and fun to do in Lake Nona and nearby areas. That’s why we are here to help! We want to bring you the inside scoop of everything local that’s going to be a hit for your Date Night.
If you all didn’t know about it yet, Nona Adventure Park is now officially open. It’s the most awe-inspiring, mind-blowing, venturous park – and it’s right here in Lake Nona!
Nona Adventure Park brings more to the show than just their three major attractions, though. They’ve come out with a new event series called Songs at Sunset. This event features live artists lakeside on the deck at their very own restaurant, Splashes Bistro. Let’s not forget the highlight – you can get all of this while enjoying a beautiful sunset; it’s truly an impeccable venue with unique and stunning views.
My wife and I have been to Nona Adventure Park many times before, but when we arrived to Songs at Sunset, we were just taken away by the vibrant and lively crowd. The great music from Jonnie Morgan on his acoustic guitar really blew us all away. He played some of his own music and some great covers, as well.
Splashes Bistro and Snack Bar definitely matches the uniqueness of Nona Adventure Park. Awesome grab-and-go bites if you’re in a rush to eat after getting exhausted on the watercourse, or choose from their Bistro menu that features gourmet salads, sandwiches and flatbreads. I’m especially a fan of their bar that serves nice, cold beer and wines.
So the wife and I decided to first grab a beer and enjoy the beginning of the show – a premium Stella for the wife, and I went with the Beach Blonde from Three Daughters. While the artist took his break, I put in an order for our food. We decided to share a curry chicken flatbread and a salad, and I took on the gourmet BBQ burger. The flatbread was very tasteful, loaded with flavor and spices that truly made a great flatbread. The salads are very fresh and yummy. I was very pleased with my gourmet burger, too. Topped with beer-battered onion rings and a sweet BBQ sauce, it definitely hit the spot.
Although the weather wasn’t the most cooperative, I still think the sunset was exquisite. Pretty reds and pinks filled the sky behind the clouds while we enjoyed a live show on the lake. There are great vibes out on Adventure Lake, and Songs at Sunset truly raises the excitement of Nona Adventure Park.
