Fun, early-evening date nights in San Francisco for
a wannabe-romantic married couple?

Mr. CruiseSavvy and I have a toddler and an infant, and both work, but we've committed to ourselves that we'll get a babysitter and go out as a couple at least once a month, every month. But what to do?
Dinner out is good, but we've done that. A lot. Movies seem like a waste, since we're not really spending time together. Late night stuff is out because to avoid total brain-death, we need to go to bed pretty darned early (and frankly nightclubs were never really our thing anyway).
Between work and baby our powers of creativity are kinda drained. Hivemind, please help!
Here are our parameters:
- Our window of opportunity is 6:30pm - 9:30pm on the first Tuesday of the month (Day can be flexible, but should be a weekday. Time is not flexible.)
- We live in the Financial District, right by the Ferry Terminal
- We love to walk, we have a car (though 6:30 traffic might be irritating), cabs are fine too
- We don't mind spending money, but we aren't budgeting for Gary Danko anytime soon
In case it helps, my all-time favorite pre-baby dates were: (a) A trip to the Exploratorium, including the Tactile Dome. Unfortunately they're not open late. (b) Touring the Mumm Champagne caves in France. But now we've kinda "done" wine, and even Napa / Sonoma are too far.
