Why Bowling is the Perfect First Date

So you’ve finally asked that special someone out on a first date. Now, it’s time for the hard part: coming up with the perfect first date activity. It should be fun and memorable, but also allow the two of you time to talk and get to know one another. This checklist isn’t so hard to tackle when you book your lane at Parkway Social for your first date. Let us tell you why:

Bowling allows the perfect amount of conversation

If your first date is at the movie theatre, there isn’t much chance to chat while you’re watching the film. If you go out for drinks, you may be anxious about the awkward pauses when you’re not sure what to say next. Bowling as a first date eliminates this issue by pairing great conversation with a fun activity anyone can enjoy.

It’s a great way to demonstrate your personality

You can show off your true self by picking a bowling move that demonstrates your personality. Or, you can pick a funny nickname to put on your scorecard to show your date your sense of humour. No matter what you choose, bowling is a great way to express yourself.

Bowling is an affordable date idea

This is a great way to have a fun and interesting first date, without breaking the bank. At Parkway Social on Thursday’s, you and your date can grab a pair of bowling shoes and 1.5 hours of lane time for just $42 (including tax) with our Date Night package.

It’s fun for everyone, despite their skill level

Whether you’re bowling strikes or gutterballs, bowling can still be a good time. If you’re not doing as well as you hoped, you can always ask your date for advice or simply laugh it off. A little sportsmanship will go a long way when trying to impress your date.

Bowling pairs perfectly with dinner and drinks
