    Great Date Ideas

    Hey Guys,

    This weather is really cramping my style. Anyone got any date ideas for the Ames area. Something cheap or expensive I don't really care at this point. Hoping a few different sets of eyes will open up my creativity a bit!

    Thanks in Advance

    Re: Great Date Ideas

    Search for a fancy dinner recipe on line together, go to the store together, buy the stuff (You pay), chop, dice and slice, saute', grill, enjoy. You could get a nice dinner for $15-$20 bucks and spend about 4 hours from start to finish...then ....who knows....

    DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT go to Dangerous Curves. I know it sound like a great idea, but in the end it really is not.

    Agreed. That place has burnt me in the past on dates too.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    I thought it would be fine since she worked there but I guess she just wanted to get away.


    Sorry OP, I couldn't resist.

    One of the things we did while still in Ames was just walking all around campus at night, and stopping at the various spots that were special to us as a couple. It was a lot of fun.

    Ledges was a good place to go to for a walk when it was nice out as well. There's a ballroom dancing club on campus that meets on Friday nights at 7 (I think) in the basement of Forker. Making dinner together (as mentioned above) is also a lot of fun.

    Campanile is a good stop.
