Date Night YYC

A great site

A Sun Destination November 30, 2013

What could be better than a sun destination for a romantic all-inclusive week in the sun – to either party or to be quiet and relax? We headed out on Westjet Vacations for a little remote place in the world called Samana, Dominican Republic and had a fantastic time. I swear they would make more money if they weighed us on the way out instead of our luggage! Endless wine, food, beaches, palm trees, and quiet – make for a happy couple.DSC02953DSC03170DSC02973DSC02906

This date night, we decided to try out the new Stromboli’s restaurant. I used to go there when it was in Kensington and I was a teenager, and wanted to share their fabulous food with my partner. We went to the new Stromboli’s location in Bridgeland,
and ordered a pizza. Unfortunately, they didn’t have their liquor license yet, and we were craving a good bottle of wine with the pizza. We ordered the pizza to go, and found a liquor depot across the street. We picked up a lovely bottle of “Fat Bastard” wine and headed over to Rotary Park off of Edmonton Trail to have a picnic. Rotary Park was interesting, but there were construction vehicles working, so we drove a little further. We landed on a quiet little street called Samis Road NW that overlooked downtown. Having a van, we parked on the side of the road, opened the van side door and had a scrumptious van-picnic with a magnificent view. It was so beautiful and quiet, and we watched the sun set and chatted. We finished off with a huge ice-cream dessert treat from Peter’s Drive-In before heading home. One of the best date nights ever.

There are many bowling alleys you can just walk in on a Saturday night and rent some shoes, and have some fun! This is Chinook Bowling at Chinook Shopping Mall.

There are many charities that sponsor fundraising galas in the city. One that occurs every month in October is the Pat McFarlane Cancer Research Foundation. The Foundation provides a dinner/dance and silent auction the third Saturday every October. It is fun and for a good cause.
