Many more fun $5 dates

Darla Mangrum, Reporter

All semester long The Rip has suggested many ideas for going on inexpensive dates and this last edition of the semester is no different, but instead of one or two dates for $5 or less here is a list of things you can do for free:

  1. Take a bike ride along the bike trail and discover new places to take a break and just talk.
  2. Take a walk downtown and window shop or check out the crazy nightlife on a Friday or Saturday night.
  3. Take a walk around downtown and take selfies with and of each other as if you were tourists.
  4. Speaking of downtown, the First Friday of every month between 5-9 p.m. in the Art District on 19th Street there is a free art show, vendors, and much more.
  5. If you are into tattooing (or not) go watch a tattoo artist at work.
  6. Have a romantic dinner at home, one person can prepare the meal and the other can bring dessert, then you can switch up the next time.
  7. If you are into video games and you are competitive spend the evening playing one of your favorite games then let the winner decide what he or she wants from the loser.
  8. Have a potluck with friends and play board games.
  9. Go play on the toys at a local park or playground and take pictures of each other doing so (Don’t forget to actually act like kids again).
  10. All summer long there is usually a park that will have free concerts or movies, find out which park and enjoy a picnic dinner as you watch the show.

Enjoy your summer!
