We know, group outings are really awkward.
Choruses of “what do you want to do?” “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” are commonplace. Now, try throwing your significant other – and the significant others of your friends – into this type of situation.
What are you going to do? How am I going to make everyone happy? Can we save the evening?
While we can’t guarantee that they will keep everyone happy, we have a few ideas for some out of the ordinary group outings right here that will bring new meaning to the group date.
A dinner party- with a funky drink of choice and a fun meal.
A cool twist on getting together at a restaurant. This could bring a level of individuality to your next event, because every group like something a little bit different.
A game night- get away from the devices and go old-school – play a selection of your favorite board games!
This keeps everyone on their toes with a combination of strategy and teamwork. You know that Monopoly game will go on for hours, but will create even bigger memories.
Hibachi- meal and entertainment all wrapped up into one.
Visit the ever-popular Benihana, or a local favorite – just be prepared to make a reservation!
A movie night, because after all, who doesn’t love popcorn and snacks!
With so many services like Netflix and Hulu who needs to wait in a long line at the movies! Of course, check out our lists of movies from before we were born, Bollywood movies and sports movies to get some more ideas.
Bowling, as a way to introduce friendly competition into your social group.
Go on a road trip!
You don’t have to drive far. Take a day trip to a local attraction- as a way to add adventure, new place and chance to make new memories. And don’t forget to plug in your phone for some tunes – our list of best classic rock playlists even includes one called “Classic Rock Road Trip.”
Dinner theater adds diversity to everything.
Paint and Vino
Ah, the ever-popular paint night! You can do it as a group, but everyone’s painting comes out a little different. Everyone takes home a one-of-a-kind piece. Paint nights are easier to find, too – just check out Muse Paintbar.
