Who Doesn’t Love a Cheap Date? Post 3: Out on the Town

This is the last post of the cheap date blog trio. This one focuses on events and activities that are in the city or “out on the town”. When my boyfriend and I are in the mood to get dressed up and go on a date out in public, there are several things we like to do that are fairly inexpensive.

My boyfriend and I have used numerous Groupons when it comes to dining out. Sometimes before we decide on what restaurant we go to we check the Groupon website to see if any restaurants in the area have a coupon. We have gotten a $20 gift certificate for a restaurant and only paid $10 for it! Groupon is a great way to save money and it is so easy to buy the certificate, print it and then go to the restaurant.¬†Another way I get coupons for restaurants is by signing up for their loyalty programs. I signed up for the Buffalo Wild Wings email list and have received birthday coupons and a “buy one meal get one free” deal. Another way to eat meals for cheap is to pay attention to their weekly specials. For example, my boyfriend and I sometimes go to a nice¬†restaurant that offers 1/2 price appetizers all night on Thursdays. We basically get a ton of amazing food for really cheap!


Every month the city I live in hosts a downtown art walk. This is a free event where downtown businesses hang up the work of local artists for people to view. There is usually free snacks and drinks which make this event all the better! These events are a lot of fun to go to and discuss artwork with that special someone (not to mention being able to go for free).


What do you like to do with your significant other when you want to go out for cheap?
