Let's face it, it can be hard to go on a date that doesn't involve drinking some sort of alcoholic beverage these days. Alcohol is mother nature's ice breaker. But not for you! You don’t need alcohol to take your guy/gal on the perfect date, especially not because you read this list before planning it!
Hopefully you used all that money you saved not drinking to buy a car because you're going to need it for most of these dates!

Grandview Lanes // 2195 Commercial Dr
If she doesn’t like bowling, you shouldn't be dating her.
Twilight Drive-In Theatre //260th Street and Fraser Highway, Aldergrove
Metro Vancouver's only drive in theatre. Yes, it's in Ladner, but if you have a car it's worth it. They are open Friday-Sunday rain or shine and I swear this will make you feel nostalgic AF.
