Welcome to the HowAboutWe for Couples Date Report, a new series where we’ll be sharing our favorite photos and stories from HowAboutWe for Couples members about their favorite dates.


Today, we’re shining the spotlight on Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo, who recently had a private billiards lesson with a local pool pro with her husband, Alex. Joanna writes:

Our teacher was Phil Davis. At first, he seemed so young, we wondered if he was really an expert, but once he started gracefully sinking every single ball every single time, from the most impossible angles, we were totally convinced. He even brought his own $4000 pool stick! The guy was not messing around.


We did a bunch of practice exercises, and I was surprised how quickly we were able to pick things up once we knew the basics.


Also, I learned Alex is a leftie when he plays sports! Who knew?


Thanks, Phil! It was such a great evening, and there’s something really fun about learning something new with your significant other. We were giddy when we left and definitely plan to take more lessons in the new year.
