Let's be honest Regina, when it comes to planning ideas for a date night, it can seem like our options are pretty limited. Sure, we are supposed to be the city that rhymes with fun, but if you've been a long time member of the dating game, it probably feels like you've had all the fun there is to be had.
I'm here to tell you that the fun isn't over. You might think you've conquered every possible date idea in this city but I bet there are at least two things on the list below that you haven't checked off yet. Have you listened to the music talents of the Regina Symphony Orchestra? Have you experienced a spin class at Wheelhouse? Or tried throwing some axes at Lumberjax? It looks like you've got some date planning ahead of you.
Here are a few date ideas in Regina, that aren't just dinner and movie:
If you're in the mood for a little competition:
Itinerary: Kick the night off with a game of pool at The Broken Rack, drink a beer or two to ease the competitive tension if needed, and then walk over to Golden Mile Bowling to put your bowling skills to the ultimate test.
If you're meeting up with a literal stranger:
Itinerary: Play a game of 21 questions over a cup of coffee and see where the conversation takes you. If you aren't totally weirded out by the end, head on over to Boards N Beans for a board game marathon.
If you want to pretend like you're in Vegas:
Itinerary: Check out a live jazz show at The Capitol, try a fancy cocktail or two, and then hit up the casino and try to win enough money to actually fly to Vegas after. Disclosure: If you hit the jackpot you have to take me with you as a third wheel.
If you're in the mood to feel fancy AF:
Itinerary: Get tickets to an evening with the Regina Symphony, make like Eminem and lose yourselves in the music, and then stop by the Hotel Sask for a late night cocktail.
If you're a couple of fitness junkies:
Itinerary: Sweat your butts off together at Wheelhouse and then head over to Glow Juicery to reward yourselves with a post-workout juice. Disclosure: Instagram that shit because you just achieved #couplegoals.
If you're in the mood to get down and dirty:
Destination: Various and The Artful Dodger
Itinerary: Use this map to plan your own beer tasting tour. After you've had a few wobbly pops, check out a live show at the Artful Dodger and do a little dancing in the meantime.
If you're both sports fanatics:
Itinerary: Get tickets to a Pats game, get a photo-op with K9 the mascot, and then head over to The Canadian brewhouse for a post-game bevvy because there will most likely be another sporting event playing for you to watch together.
If you get talked into a double date:
Destination: Lumberjax and a local pub of choice
Itinerary: Invite another couple to join you at Lumberjax, throw some weapons in the air for shits and giggles, and then go out for drinks to Vic's, Leo's or The Fat Badger.
