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.
