Single or attached, everyone loves a good night out. Too often, date nights are planned for those who are deeply in love, excluding those aren’t in committed relationships. This week, we present date night ideas based on wherever you’re at, not where your relationship is supposed to be. If you’re single and ready to mingle, we’ve got just the thing for you; but if your committed and want to learn more about your partner, we’ve also got something just as great. It’s Date Night was founded on the idea of creating exceptional dates for you and your partner to grow together as you experience new things – we’re not about to let you down now.
Get out of the house and experience something new based on your relationship status:
Status: Single & Loving it
Maybe you’ve dated in the past and it didn’t go so well, or perhaps you’re new to the dating game and you just want to live a little before being tied down. You value your time and you don’t want to waste any of it doing something that you don’t absolutely love; we got you. On October 21, enjoy a full Day of Wellness in the Canadian Rockies with Evolve Retreats as you participate in an active day of fitness, yoga, nutrition demonstrations, outdoor adventure, a better sleep workshop and yoga nidra practice accompanied by a live cello performance. This time doesn’t work for you? No worries, our Date Night Insiders club provides deals to Clear Float Spa right here in Calgary – all you have to do is sign up and reap the rewards.
Who says dates have to be at night, or with someone else? Treat yourself to an experience that is not only good for your body, but your mind and soul too.
Status: Not-Not Looking
You’re the person who could see yourself dating in the near future, buuuut you’re not sure if you’re ready for the dating apps or the blind dates your friends keep talking about. You’re not-not looking, so if the perfect someone walked around the corner, you would be pleasantly surprised. For you my friend, we have a few dates that might tickle your fancy.
This weekend, the Calgary Sport and Social Club are hosting not one, but TWO, fun tournaments that might just be the perfect place to meet some local singles who are interested in an active lifestyle. Try your hand at curling or co-ed volleyball this Saturday, October 19 followed by drinks with all your newfound friends. Maybe you’re not one into team sports; don’t worry, we have something for you too. Taiko Taco has opened just south of downtown, an Asian fusion restaurant complete with good beer and a 9-hole lucky putt. Play a round, grab a pint and see who you meet at this Date Night Insiders approved bar.
Status: Avidly Looking
Perhaps you’ve been single a while and you’re ready to get out there or just know that you’re ready to meet your special someone. The dating game is tough as you get older, unsure of who’s single or attached, married or has kids. Without the help of dating apps, sometimes it’s impossible to tell unless you have the courage to just walk right up to someone and ask them point-blank.
Lucky for you, we’ve done the hard work for you. We’ve brought 3D Tinder to you with our monthly speed dating event, so that you are able to meet local singles just like you without a screen in between. Join us for a night of 3-4 minute dates as the women sit and the men rotate around the room, practicing your flirting and seeing if you’ve still got game. October 22nd from 7-9pm – be there, everyone else will.
Status: Happily Attached
You’re lucky, you’ve already met that special someone that everyone else is seeking to find. You’re happy sitting at home, making dinner and having relaxing nights in front of the TV – for now. Every relationship, new or old, needs a kick in the pants every now and then, motivation to get off the couch, dress up and leave the house to do something new together.
Connect with your date at a cooking class this weekend, whether you want to learn how to cook for two or recipes for delectable Thai food. Perhaps you’re not the cooking couple, we get it. We’ve got discounts to see Dave Kelly Live on our Date Night Insiders portal, a hilarious show including performances, interviews, games and all the things that Dave Kelly loves. Laugh your heads off as you enjoy a night out together, Dave Kelly style.
