Plan a Pub Crawl Date Night Ditch the romance and go for fun with this super casual date night idea. BY SARAH PIERCE
Whoop it up with your spouse on a casual date night pub crawl.
One of the perks of being married is that not all dates have to be über-romantic. Going out can be as casual and fun as you want it to be because you’re more than two people in love—you’re best friends.
For a fun and casual night out, try planning a pub crawl in your favorite city. Not only is it an entertaining way to explore downtown, but it’s also a fun way to enjoy each other. Sometimes all you need is to laugh over a pint of beer with your best friend, so here are three ideas to help you plan a fun and safe pub crawl date.
Plan ahead. Look in the local newspaper or online to see if any bars will be featuring drink specials, live bands or other special events, and plan your route accordingly. You could save a lot of money by hitting certain happy hours or visiting a spot on a special two-for-one drink night. And if you enjoy live music, you might be able to catch more than one great local band if you plan it right.
Pick a theme. Make things more fun by picking a theme for the pub crawl; e.g., Irish bars, country bars, dive bars or, for a classier evening, wine bars. If you don’t mind sharing the date, recruit some other couples to go pub crawling with you and make them stick to the theme by wearing cowboy hats if it’s a country crawl or even making matching t-shirts if it’s a special event you’re celebrating, such as a birthday or anniversary. If you want to make things more romantic, stick to wine bars and dress the part.
Be safe. Don’t make the last stop on your pub crawl the county jail. Leave your car at home and walk from bar to bar, take a cab, or hire a private car or limo service to drive you around all night.
Recuperate. Extend the date into the next day by planning a morning of lounging together and recuperating. Hit up your favorite breakfast spot together and then crawl back in bed for a serious afternoon snuggle session. Cheers!
