Okay friends, when I came up with the idea for this mini-series I thought, "Sure, cheap, fun, creative date ideas will be a good thing to blog about. Let's make this happen." What I am now realizing is I LOVE THIS SERIES. Like for reals. Not only do I have an excuse to try out a bunch of new ideas and places but I also get to bring my PIC [partna in crime, aka Ian] along for the ride. My blogging buddy Alyssa from All Things Beautiful decided to linkup with the series too [so check it out!]. I'm thrilled because now we have both east coast [I'm gearing up for wintery dates] and west coast [she's enjoying the amazing weather...I'm a little jealous] date ideas!
Where did we go on our next date? We both love beer, Syracuse, and affordable dates. That's why we picked a local brewery's free beer tasting! Yes, that's right I said FREE. I can't believe it has taken us 2 years to check out Middle Ages.
We were able to try out all the beers that they had on tap and relax. It was great for two people [like us] who are comfortable holding a conversation, but it would also be a great first date because you can try new things together. Plus, did I mention it was FREE?!
We didn't take any pictures inside because we didn't want to operate any machinery while drinking. Make sure that if you go on one of these dates you take a cab, walk or other transportation since I do not endorse drinking and driving. Also, since it is free please give a generous tip to the happy people working there. After we left Middle Ages Ian looked at me and I knew what he was thinking. He blurted, "Yeah, let's do this every week." And that's how traditions are born.
Search the local breweries in your town or city to see if they offer a free tasting and check it out!
