Although it’s always fun to go to dinner and a movie, you may find that you want to mix it up every now and then. It can be challenging to come up with fun new ideas though. Here are some unique activities to try for your next night out.
A Dessert Bar
Look in your area to see if there’s a dessert bar near you. These are places that specialize in desserts and cocktails, so don’t expect to eat dinner there. This is a great place to go enjoy a few drinks and split different desserts. You’ll want to make sure the place has the proper TABC permit before you go there.
An Escape Room
If you’re looking for a fun interactive activity, you should definitely try an escape room. You’re put in a themed room where you’re given a series of clues to solve that will help you escape from the room. Typically, you spend an hour in the room trying to solve the puzzle. Some people are able to complete the tasks and escape in under an hour. However, some people aren’t able to finish within the hour. If you aren’t successful, you’re still let out of the room after an hour. These can be difficult to complete, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t finish. You can always go back another time and try again.
A Brewery Tour
Craft beer has become increasingly more popular in the past few years. Most cities have quite a few breweries around, and you’re likely to find at least one or two in some towns as well. Many breweries offer tours of their facilities. You can see where and how the beer is made. Afterwards, you can hang out at the brewery for a while and try some of the different beers. Most places offer flights, which are smaller pours of different beers so that you are able to try more of them. Many breweries also have different games like cornhole, foosball, ping pong and board games that you can play while you hang out. They also often have live music and other events, such as trivia or bingo going on during opening hours.
Make sure to plan these activities in advance as some of them may require reservations. You may not like everything you try, but it’s always good to branch out. No matter what, you’ll have fun as long as you’re with someone you enjoy spending time with.
