it's been a while that we did a Date Night post, but we're back again and in the next couple of weeks we'll be showing you new and old places and activities to check out in Calgary. Now that it's Winter time and the cold weather is forcing us to stay inside, it is very important to stay active and not just "Netflix and Chill". Don't get us wrong we love to binge watch our favorite shows but to be honest it gets quiet boring and the Winter is super long. So that's why we created a list with 5 Winter date night ideas for you to do and check out in Calgary. Also, don't forget to subscribe to our Newsletter so you don't miss more stories, detailed coverage about some of these activities and of course GIVEAWAYS! Enjoy!
1. Adult Night at the Zoo
If you have been at the Zoolights before you know the scoop. What tops the Zoolights though is the final Adult Night event of the year this upcoming Thursday the 30th.

2. Crafts and baking at home
Sometimes all you want to do is stay at home and that is okay. We actually love staying at home especially if it's freezing outside, but who says staying at come can't be fun and productive? Check out Pinterest for some cool craft ideas to pimp up your home or even for some DIY Christmas present ideas. If you're not a craft person how about baking? Try out new cookie recipes or build that fancy ginger bread house. Make sure you're coming back here in a couple of days... we'll have a little something for you!
3. The Rec Room
Have you checked out the recently opened Rec Room at Deerfoot City? The Rec Room is the place to let go, be playful and experience something new and exciting. They have over 80 arcade games such as Pac Man and Mario Kart and they also offer a wide variety of commemorative items in their Trophy Case. If you get hungry from all the gaming, share one of the delicious Poutines from The Shed or how about one of THREE10’s handcrafted dishes. You had too much too eat? Dance it off at one of their fun parties with live DJ. It's a super fun date night for all ages!
4. Bungee Workout
Bungee Workout Canada recently opened its first gym in Calgary. "Bungee what??", you're asking. Well instead of your usual squats and pushups, the Bungee Workout Canada offers classes where attendees will learn a dance routine incorporating the bungees and the walls around the studio. Right now they have a Christmas Special going on, including their $20 Bungee Wednesday. Check it out or wait for our blog post about our Bungee Workout experience, coming next week.
5. Acura Tube Park at WinSport
Some Winter days are warmer than others so why not utilizing the nice weather and spending it outside catching some vitamin D. WinSport offers many cool Winter activities such as the Acura Tube Park. This year they did some renovations so the park now features more lanes, a food & beverage vendor, and some cozy lounging areas. The tickets for two hour tubing for adults are $27.99. Also check the Acura Tube Park hours before you go.
