5 Non-Traditional Date Nights in Frisco

5 Non-Traditional Date Nights in Frisco

It’s no secret that periodic date nights are vital to keeping a marriage happy and healthy. But sometimes you can get in a rut and date nights can become, well… boring and routine. Another dinner and movie? Really? What are we going to talk about at the restaurant that isn’t work or kids? And there’s a limit to how many couples’ painting classes you can attend. I mean, there are only so many walls in any given house. While there’s definitely a time and place for traditional date nights, why not try out some of these local twists on the classics on your next night out on the town. They’re sure to spice up the conversation, and maybe the competitive streaks too.

  1. Nerdvana - There are two Nerdvana establishments to choose from: Nerdvana coffee+shop and Nerdvana food+spirits. The coffee+shop is a board game-based coffee house that is nostalgically decorated on the inside. Eighties babies will be thrilled! Order your drink and a macaron, find a table, and choose a game to play from the lending library. You can also bring your own game if you have a favorite from home. Even if games aren’t your thing, it’s still a nice place to just sit and talk a while with plenty of nostalgic conversation starters around.

    The Nerdvana sister restaurant next door- food+spirits- is a very different twist on a regular restaurant. Sit in one of the gaming booths and play video games together right at the table! They have lots of games choices, from the latest and greatest Mario Kart to the old classic Super Mario Bros. A little friendly competition is good for a marriage, right?

  2. Frisco Roughriders - Go see a baseball game with your beloved! We love Roughriders games and minor league teams in general. The games are very relaxed and just a lot of fun. And Dr. Pepper Ballpark is so beautiful, you’ll feel right at home in its Southern charm. If you want to go all out, get tickets to watch the game from the outfield in the Choctaw Lazy River. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget!

  3. Texas Sculpture Garden - This is a frugal couple’s dream date. Go to HALL Park to stroll through the interior HALL collection (open weekdays 9 am-5 pm) and then head outside to the Texas Sculpture Garden to see over 40 sculpture installations arranged across 4 acres of beautiful outdoor space. Grab a Summer Moon coffee or Andy’s Frozen Custard before your stroll and make an evening of it. Exterior collection open daily dawn till dusk.

  4. Frisco Gun Club - Texas, y’all! A date just isn’t complete until you’ve shot some guns. The Frisco Gun Club is quite fancy for a shooting range, so enjoy the nice aesthetic as you release some stress on your targets.

  5. Dinner and a Movie - I know! I basically called dinner and a movie super lame. But that kind of depends on the theater you choose. Instead of an old classic theater with sticky floors and stiff seats, give the Moviehouse & Eatery a try! (Technically in McKinney- Exchange & 121- but close enough to the bubble for consideration.) The food here is truly excellent, they serve adult beverages, and you can practically lie down in your recliner. It’s a one-stop-shop date night that’s sure to please.

I’ve been going on date nights with my husband in Frisco for a long time. Sometimes it feels like we’ve done everything there is to do. So what non-traditional, creative date night ideas do YOU have? I want to know because I want to go on them. Tell me in the comments!
