Centennial Olympic Park Date Night

In the next month or so, Centennial Olympic Park will be all aglow with Christmas lights and the ice skating rink will be installed.  Do the thing that most men don’t do and plan ahead!  I’m here to help you and make you look good.  Get your Groupon for a fantastic date night at park – SkyView!  For a fun, festive night, Centennial Olympic Park is the place to be and it starts with today’s deal find:

  • $23 for Date Night for two with chocolates ($37 value)

For dinner before, try Park Bar – great burgers, good drinks and amazing location!  I tried to be healthy when we went and ordered a chicken sandwich while my date ordered a burger.  After tasting his, I wish I had ordered a burger.  My sandwich was good, but his was one of the best burgers I have ever tasted!  After your burger enjoy the night views if the city and chocolates.

Happy dating!


To coupon or not to coupon

A letter to the editor:

shutterstock_165910619Dear Date Escape,

I’m new to the 2013 dating scene and so much has changed.  I love your blog and the great ideas you share.  I just started online dating and I’m wondering how soon is too soon to whip out a deal coupon or app?

-40 and Single

That’s a great question!  So you’re on your first date and you have only just chatted via text/email/phone briefly and you’re wondering if you should try one of those deal sites to test her adaptability to your frugalness? Absolutely not.  There are many factors that should be considered when considering to use a coupon on a date but none of them matter on the first few dates.  I think you’re first safe date is date 5 and even then there are many factors to take into consideration.  I would definitely warn her the first time via email.

Hey check out this cool date idea on one of those deal sites.  Do you have plans next Thursday?  I was thinking we could try it.

As you start to learn more about her, find out how frugal and budget conscious she is.  If that’s important to you, pull out another a few dates later.  Don’t do it every time and make sure it’s a cool date idea so that she’s focused on that and not that you used a coupon.

Good luck!
