Mellow Mushroom is celebrating date night every Wednesday with two 10-inch stone baked pies and pretzel bites for only $25. Couples are encouraged to share a photo of their pizza date on Instagram and/or Facebook with #MellowLove for a chance to win a date night package sponsored by Mellow Mushroom.

“Cupid is alive and well in quarantine,” said Anne Meija, VP of Brand Development at Mellow Mushroom. “Just because we’re all in quarantine it doesn’t mean we have to give up special moments like date nights.

Although pizza-loving couples cannot currently dine-in at Mellow Mushroom, that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a hot date night and a hot pie together. To keep the flame burning at home, Mellow Mushroom is celebrating date night every Wednesday with two 10-inch stone baked pies and pretzel bites for only $25.

Couples are encouraged to share a photo of their pizza date on Instagram and/or Facebook with #MellowLove for a chance to win a date night package sponsored by Mellow Mushroom. Every order of pretzel bites is hand formed from signature Mellow pizza dough, cut into bite-size pieces, finished with garlic butter and parmesan, and served with a side of Pabst Blue Ribbon™ beer cheese sauce. Couples can select two of their favorite 10-inch pies from the stone-baked pie section on the Mellow menu.

Traditionally, date night implies a night out. But research company Datassential reported in the 2020 Sheltered report that many Americans view quarantine eating as a necessary function rather than a happy occasion to connect with loved ones. Restaurants have the opportunity to change the narrative. Forty-two percent of those surveyed said they are willing to try a date night in with their partner during quarantine, and 41 percent are willing to order a restaurant meal as a special treat. Additionally, 40 percent are open to trying a virtual dinner with family or friends over the phone or video chat.

“Cupid is alive and well in quarantine,” said Anne Meija, VP of Brand Development at Mellow Mushroom. “Just because we’re all in quarantine it doesn’t mean we have to give up special moments like date nights. We can still dress up and share a love connection at home, or a meal together over Facetime with the people who mean the most to us.”

For those who want to enjoy a drink with their meal, Mellow Mushroom offers a selection of bottled and canned beers, red and white wines, premium spirits, and signature cocktails that can be added to any pizza order. * Guests should call their local restaurant for a complete list of available options.

If feeding a family is more your speed, Mellow Mushroom offers Mellow Mondays featuring a $10 large cheese pizza at participating locations. Guests can also receive 10 percent off online pick-up orders through June 30, 2020 and free delivery where applicable.
