Date Idea: Casino
Location: Various
Price: Minimal to Thousands!

I’m back. I missed out on a posting last week because I was on my way back from Las Vegas. Which brings me to this week’s post. The CASINO!

You can make whatever you want from the casino and go there to gamble anywhere from a few dollars, to hundreds or even thousands. Teaching your date how to play Blackjack or Roulette can be a great way to bond…until you start losing money. But the casinos are just about gambling. Several of them have shows, restaurants, bars, and lounges. So when you’re up, take a break, grab a bite to eat, and maybe watch a show.

The River Rock Casino in Richmond even has a hotel and they offer a variety of play and stay packages where you can enjoy yourself with a few casino games and shows, and then head upstairs to relax for the night. They even have an amazing buffet with a chocolate fountain.

Dinner and a Movie - VIP Style

Date Idea: Dinner and a Movie - VIP Style
Location: Various
Price: Various - Movies starting at $7 per person
More Info:

Of all the dates ideas I've listed, sometimes you have to go with a classic. What is more classic than dinner and a movie? But today, I'm going highlight an experience that Cineplex Odeon is offering that you don't see to often. At the SilverCity Coquitlam location, they have vamped things up to offer both a dinner and a movie all under one roof.

You now have the option of a VIP Experience. Show up to the theatre before the show, or stay after and swing by the VIP Lounge where you can grab a bite to eat or grab a drink. Or if you want, concession items can be brought to your seat, which you reserve when you buy your tickets. As part of this experience, the theatre has even been upgrade. The seats are spread out further apart to allow for more room, and the seats fully recline like a lazyboy. Feel like snuggling with your date? The armrests fold up to make a little love seat! A seat in the VIP theatre will cost you a bit more than a regular movie with tickets selling for $19.50.

FYI, I'll be out of town, so there will be no posting next week.
