Late night adult dates

27 Jul

If your ideal date involves demonstrating what a stable genius you are, show off your deep base of useless knowledge at one of the many bar trivia nights around town.

Fortunately, comedy shows tend to be pretty cheap dates.

Options for winter ice skating used to be fairly limited in Chicago, but these days in addition to Millennium Park you can now lace up at outdoor venues like Maggie Daley Park and The Park at Wrigley, not to mention local parks like Wentworth Park where you can try (and fail) to reenact the closing scene from Drinking at a fireplace bar is a rite of passage during Chicago winter, but not all fireplace bars are created equal.

Some of the best options in the city include the Dan Ryan Woods, Palmisano Park, and Caldwell Woods, while the burbs offer an array of hills like James Park in Evanston and Riverside’s Swan Pond.

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.

Lake Geneva is never a bad idea, and an even closer option would be to check out the underrated small town of Woodstock to take in the annual winter spectacle that is Groundhog Days.
