The Hexagon Board Game Cafe- 10123 Whyte Avenue
We all know it's true—dates are awkward. If you've got something to do like a board game or a puzzle, it'll be easier to make conversation in between moves. There's lots to talk about and before you know it you'll be in the competitive spirit. Remember to keep things friendly!
The Rec Room- 1725- 99 Street NW
The Rec Room seriously has everything. You can't go wrong by bringing a date here. There's food, there's craft beer, there's...bowling! Seriously, there are endless options. The time will fly by! Pick your date wisely, 'cause you're going to want to come back here with them.
Edmonton Food Tours- Various Locations
Food is a great way to break the ice! You can talk about what you like and don't like, what you've never tried before, what kind of freaks you out a little. Plus you get to try dozens of delicious foods!
The Comic Strip- Bourbon Street, West Edmonton Mall, 8882—170 Street
Going to a comedy show is a litmus test for whether or not your date is going to work out. Don't waste your time with someone who has no sense of humour! The Comic Strip is one endless laugh, so you won't have to worry about being the one to tell the jokes. Plus, the food is outstanding!
Art Gallery of Edmonton- 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
I know this is a "classic," but hear me out. A gallery date has become such a cliche that people are afraid to suggest it! Put down your phones and browse some art together. It'll spark some conversation and you'll have a great old fashioned date. In 2017, that's unique!
