Whistler Sliding Centre

Date Idea: Extreme Sport Adventure - Bobsleigh or Skeleton
Location: Whistler Sliding Centre, 4910 Glacier Lane, Whistler
Price: $149.00 per person

This one is for the thrillseekers. Anybody can head up to Whistler for a day of skiing, but how about adding some spice to the day. Its not everyday that you can say that you went flying head first down a sheet of ice at 100km/h. Whistler Sliding Centre can let you and your date do just that. There are several sessions available throughout the months of February and March where you can try your hand at bobsleigh, or for those who are more of a thrillseeker, the skeleton. The sessions are 2 hours long where you get an orientation and a single run in the bobsleigh, or 2 runs on the skeleton. Make sure to book in advance because space is limited. When you're done your ride, why not stroll the village and find a nice restaurant to have dinner in. If you have more time, book a hotel, spend another day, and hit up the slopes.

Dine Out Vancouver

Date Idea: Dine Out Vancouver
Location: All over the Lower Mainland

In its 10th year, Dine Out Vancouver has grown to be one of the most popular dining events in the area. Hosted by Tourism Vancouver, the event runs from January 20th to February 5th of this year. The main event includes hundreds of restaurants in Vancouver and surrounding areas offering 3 course meals ranging in price from $18, $28, and $38 per person. This is a great way for you and your date to discover a restaurant that you haven't tried before at a decent price, especially when you consider that at some higher end restaurants, you can be looking at a single entree being $25-$35 a plate. So to get a 3 course meal for $38 is a steal.

The second part of Dine Out Vancouver are the "Play" festivals. They have events where you can learn to pair your food with wine, learn about food vendors, see a show with your dinner are more.

The last part, of Dine Out Vancouver is the "Stay" part. Tourism Vancouver has teamed up with the local hotels to offer great deals on hotel packages. So if you're coming from out of town, or just want a romantic night after your dinner, make sure to check out the "Stay" link on the Dine Out Vancouver Page.

Hockey Game

Date Idea: Vancouver Giants Hockey Game
Location: Pacific Coliseum, 100 N Renfrew Street, Vancouver
Price: $18 per person
More Info: 1-855-3GIANTS or www.vancouvergiants.com

Sorry there hasn't been a posting for the past 2 weeks. Been busy with work and the holiday season. But here's the first posting of 2012. Happy Dating!

Are you and your date both sports fans? Then head on down to the Vancouver Coliseum where you can check out future NHL players at the fraction of the cost. The Vancouver Giants are part of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and have been one of the hottest teams in the league. The games are not as commercialized as the big leagues, but you still can get high levels of intensity at the game in a more intimate setting.

If you have some extra money to spare, and if you can find tickets, you can upgrade to an NHL game and watch the Vancouver Canucks play at Rogers Arena.
