Good cheap dating ideas dating a fashion designer

07 Jun

Admission is totally free, but leaving a donation at the door can't hurt your chances with your date.

Instead of (or in addition to) a winter rooftop bar or hot new restaurant, another solid option to get to know your date while experiencing the magic of winter (without all the cold) is to snuggle up in an outdoor drinking igloo at places like the I|O Godfrey, where you can sip hot drinks like the Jameson- and heat-infused Godfrey Toddy while exploring its “Winter Wonderland” rooftop log cabin.

If you’re looking to get a bit more rowdy, Brew & View is never a bad idea, while a fancy dine-in movie theater like AMC Dine-In Block 37 is the ultimate low-pressure, two birds/one stone lazy afternoon out. Take in the fresh air on a winter stroll along the 2.7-mile elevated path from Bucktown to Humboldt Park (with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby), or hold hands as you gaze out into a frozen yet eerily beautiful and quietly calm Lake Michigan along the 18-mile Lakefront Trail.

The stylish, recently revamped Logan Theatre is always a solid date choice, but becomes even better in winter thanks to their “Jolly January” late-night movie series.

If you can’t seal the deal after this date, something must have gone seriously wrong (let’s hope it wasn’t your art).

Chicago’s burlesque bona fides are not to be questioned, and you can sex up your night out with a visit to one of the city’s many burlesque stomping grounds like Untitled or The Drifter.

Or, if you prefer your bowling with more weird bumper cars, a winter date to Whirlyball is clearly calling your name.

Painting parties paired with wine are the name of the game at uber date-friendly spots like Bottle & Bottega.
