Sometimes a low-maintenance two-stop date night just can’t be beat. If you’re looking for a fun activity to try out with your date to follow a superb dinner, consider this your plan! If not, throw something easy together for dinner or order your favorite meal to go and pick a movie to watch from home. Add this to the weekend out itinerary for next time 😉

Happy dating!


4012 Townsfair Way, Columbus, OH

Head to Easton Town Center for a flavorful dinner at Brassica. Brassica is one of the best spots to enjoy a high quality meal without having to wait forever for your food to be prepared. Simply make your way through the line, pick whether you want a sandwich or bowl, and choose from a selection of fillings or toppings. Top your creation off with a sauce of your choice and don’t forget to ask for fries (trust us). Their Minty Lemonade is killer and it comes frozen as well! If you’re wanting to sip on an alcoholic beverage, they’ve got seltzers and canned wines for a little “cheers” action.

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, we don’t blame you. Try their Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie! Sounds weird, but it’s incredible.

Enjoy the upscale ambiance, do some people watching, flirt a bit here and there (or the whole time, nobody’s stoppin’ ya) and have a perfectly perfect dinner date. Afterwards, do some window shopping around Easton to let the food settle before your next stop!

Skate Zone 71

4900 Evanswood Dr, Columbus, OH 43229

Bring a pair of long socks, wear pants that can stretch over your skates (or easily be tucked in) an get ready for loads of fun. On Thursdays and Sundays, Skate Zone 71 hosts DJ Adult Skate Nights and it is a total vibe. The music and ambience make for the most fun-filled evening. If you’ve never been roller skating or blading before, don’t sweat it – it’s still fun. Many of the people that come are advanced skaters with years of experience under their belt, and they’re wildly entertaining to watch. Don’t fret though, any person at any level is welcome to take part in it!

For the cherry on top, there are several disco balls, black-lights, and pops of neon all around to set the scene for your skate date. Lace up those skates, get ready to laugh together, and learn a new skill in the coolest setting.
