A goal I haven’t shared yet for this year is to go on more dates with my husband. We don’t regularly schedule date nights, but I’d like to change that. As Valentine’s Day approaches it’s a good time to figure out plans, whether you’re a married couple, longterm partners or just started dating. I’m sharing five experience date ideas in Chicago.
Rage Room: I have wanted to do this since seeing a similar experience in an episode of “Workin’ Moms.” You can basically smash and destroy anything in sight in the room with bat or something similar. For two people the cost is $30 plus tax. You can also bring in your own items and just pay for your time in the Rage Room.
Brooklyn Bounders Chicago: I tried this once and it was so fun and challenging. It makes a great date because you can cheer each other on and help each other. It also forces you out of your comfort zone.
Wndr Museum: The museum features a Sequin Tunnel, Music Room, Infinity Mirror Room by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, Light Floor and Waterlight Graffiti. It contains “thought-provoking, innovative technologies, and stunning installations.” Tickets are $32 each and you have a reserved time slot for your visit.
Dabble classes: Dabble.co offers all sorts of classes, including sushi rolling, glass-blowing, ax throwing and painting. All of these would be fun, out-of-the-box dates. In the summer, I would suggest SUP (standup paddleboarding) classes.
Eataly cooking classes: I just visited Eataly for the first time and it was a wonderland of good drinks and eats. You can take a cooking class together and then enjoy a meal and drinks together, which seems like such a perfect date.
Do you have any other date ideas in Chicago that you love?
