It’s a problem that plenty of 20-somethings and older have when they want to see their friends: sometimes it feels like there’s nowhere to go to socialize. Going out drinking can be expensive, and not everyone enjoys this activity; additionally, going to a movie theater doesn’t leave much room for conversation, unless you want to draw the ire of other moviegoers. When you’ve become bored with the bar and hanging out at home seems like a hassle, it may be time to come up with some other ideas for food and entertainment.
However, one answer to this problem is as easy as searching your local Yelp and Google listings. There you can find unique restaurants and entertainment venues in your area that can provide a night of fun for everyone. Here are just three ideas you can use to have a memorable night out with your friends:
1. Look for entertainment options. A night out can include more than just your average bar. Check for venues that offer concerts or comedy acts. If you and your friends like being the centers of attention, karaoke is another activity that plenty of people love — no matter how talented or tone deaf they are.
2. Create your own tournament. If you’re going to hang out with your friends, why not bring a little bit of competition to the evening? The adventurous sorts may want to find a more physical activity to get everyone out of the house, like laser tag or paintball. Others who would prefer a more leisurely evening can try searching for local establishments with bowling, miniature golf, or billiards.
3. Dine out at a unique restaurant. If you’re looking for a relaxed night out, find a local unique restaurant to bring the whole group to. One possible solution is to head out to a sushi bar, especially one that focuses on providing the top cuisine and seafood and some restaurant entertainment, as well. Just make sure before you go out that everyone agrees on the restaurant you’ve chosen.
