By Nikayla Goddard, January 10 2016 —

Are your finances suffering the post-Christmas slump? Have no fear! There are plenty of affordable dates that won’t cramp your wallet or your style.

Up for some friendly competition? The Boxcar Café on 1st Street SW is the perfect date night on the cheap with over 300 games available to play. Rent a game for $2.50 per hour any day of the week. Open from 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays, this café is the perfect place to get your board game fix accompanied by reasonably-priced food and drinks.

Eager for a moderately priced beer and free entertainment? Ducky’s Pub and Restaurant is open seven days a week from 2:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Drunken karaoke is the tried and true way to initiate a relationship. Confess how deep your love is and woo your date by singing the Bee Gees’ “How Deep is Your Love.”

Though most of Heritage Park is closed for the winter, the Gasoline Alley Museum and Heritage Town Square are still accessible for $11. Gasoline Alley offers a museum full of vintage vehicles, petrol pumps and restaurants for you and your date to tour.
