      Just call me old fashioned. Dinner somewhere nice and walking along the beach 🙂

    2. ShawnTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 2:35pm PDT

      My “ideal date night” would be Giant’s hockey, a few beers and whole bunch of chicken wings.

    3. DonTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 2:45pm PDT

      my daughter wants me to take her..
      this would be great!

      Nothing beats going to a hockey game as the perfect for date night, way more exciting than watching a game on TV!

    5. Richard W.Tuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 3:36pm PDT

      Perfect date night would definately be going to a hockey game with the gf followed by lounging home by the fireplace with some wine!

    6. KateTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 3:38pm PDT

      Ideal Date Night (in the fall) involves something outdoorsy like a hike followed by dinner out, a fun activity (like a giants game!) and ending with a wood fire to keep us cozy and out of the rain.

    7. MeganTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 3:47pm PDT

      My ideal date night… hmmmm…. I think I’d have to say a nice dinner and drinks downtown, followed by a GIANTS GAME! 😀

    8. ValerieTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 3:58pm PDT

      Ideal date night: 1. dinner cooked by my boyfriend 2. a fabulous and exciting giants game! 3. Drinks/desert in Gastown!

    9. DeanTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 4:10pm PDT

      My wife and I are “back to dating” again, as we have just become empty nesters. We are both big hockey fans and this would be a great way to kick the romance in gear again.

    10. Toby SullivanTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 4:12pm PDT

      As winter quickly approaches, a perfect date would include mittens, scarves, a movie at the cinema, and dinner from a street vendor.

    11. ZombetteTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 4:34pm PDT

      I wanna win a date with my boy! 🙂

    12. JenTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 4:55pm PDT

      An ideal date night would be going out for a nice dinner, then to the game, then somewhere quiet for a drink and a nice view!

    13. AJTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 4:56pm PDT

      Anywhere with my fiance is a great date! But a dinner at Sandbar then a walk on the seawall is always great.

    14. taradenTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 5:05pm PDT

      As a parent of a 3 year old boy, I have sadly forgotten what “date night” is like. My husband and I rarely go on dates! But a Giants game sounds like a great date night to me. Maybe some dinner before the game, a few drinks the giants game, and a quiet night @ home!

    15. DarrenTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 5:10pm PDT

      One of the best summer date-night options in the Lower Mainland is a row-boat picnic on Deer Lake (in Deer Lake Park in Burnaby). They have on-site boat rentals. Go for the row boat (much more romantic than kayak or peddle boat) and impress your date with your rowing skills. Alternatively, she’ll die laughing at your lack of seamanship. Add in a picnic basket full of goodies (preferably not from Tim Horton’s), a little wine/champagne (is that legal?) and you’ve got yourself an awesome date night/afternoon. A beautiful lake in a gorgeous park. Highly recommended. Call me ;).

    16. EdTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 5:26pm PDT

      Probably just hanging out without having to get all formal and stuff.

    17. Don ForanTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 6:08pm PDT

      it’s been so long since I’ve had a date that I can’t really remember…

    18. Teresa KTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 6:13pm PDT

      Anything that involves my boyfriend and laughing and having a good time.

    19. ValerieTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 6:15pm PDT

      Best date night: a night out dancing or a hockey game…but a homecooked dinner and some wine followed by a night of Wii gaming sounds pretty fun too!

    20. BethTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 9:31pm PDT

      The best date night would be *playing* a game of hockey!

    21. MichelleTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 9:33pm PDT

      Burgers, beer and a hockey game would be a pretty good date night!!! Followed possibly by drinks downtown somewhere. 🙂

    22. sueTuesday, October 12th, 2010 — 10:14pm PDT

      My daughter found tickets last year to play-off games & yeah we were hooked! we went to the Press Box & then to the game. We bought tickets a couple of times because it’s in your face hockey, lots of families & fun ! So yeah we want to go again!!!!

    23. GeneWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 1:22am PDT

      My girlfriend and I at a hockey game. She’s downing a beer or two, yelling at the refs and cheering for the home team while I just sit there watching her with a smile on my face.

    24. JasonWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 2:46am PDT

      My ideal date night would be at a hockey game!

    25. DebWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 9:01am PDT

      My ideal date night would be to go for snacks, then to a pro hockey game (I’ve only been to one, ever!), and out for dinner.
      Finish off with a long walk downtown with my sweetie afterwards.

    26. VanessaWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 9:31am PDT

      My ideal “date night” experience would be meeting someone awesome and not a weirdo (like I have been seeing lately).

    27. ParkerWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 10:54am PDT

      I would *love* to give this to my friends who have a young baby as a fabulous night out together. They have been the best and most supportive friends since I moved here 6 years ago, and I’d love to give them a wonderful treat like this!!

      And my ideal date? I’d say much like Vanessa’s hope (the post above) – a date with a normal person would be pretty epic.

    28. LizWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 12:05pm PDT

      My ideal date night? Spending time with my boyfriend, because he makes everything fun 🙂

    29. adam knightWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 2:25pm PDT

      oh oh oh…just met a lovely lady that is a HUGE hockey fan and what better first date this would be….love to win it and shine 🙂

    30. JenniferWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 4:04pm PDT

      My ideal date night would invovle dinner and a nice stroll, preferably in an exotic location….maybe Hawaii?

    31. JessicaWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 5:03pm PDT

      My ideal date night would be: a delicious dinner out in a tasteful and quiet place followed by a walk home in the crisp, cool, autumn air.
      I love you Anthony:)

    32. Arti PrasadWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 5:25pm PDT

      My ideal date would be a picnic in the park complete with wine, cheese, dry spicy chorizo, and crackers. Then…let’s go to the planetarium! Super fun!

    33. LindsayWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 6:33pm PDT

      An ideal date night lately is anything with the hubby. He is at school right now so we are on a budget and limited with time as he is always in the library!

      It is going to be this way for the next 4 years of my life :p

    34. TracyWednesday, October 13th, 2010 — 8:53pm PDT

      Dinner, hot chocolate and a fun movie!

    35. RachelThursday, October 14th, 2010 — 12:19am PDT

      hole in the wall restaurant, frozen yogurt, then a walk on the beach !

    36. michelleThursday, October 14th, 2010 — 11:11am PDT

      My favourite place for Date Night is Raw Canvas in Yaletown – such a unique place to relax and be creative with your honey 🙂

    37. Cynthia BarkerThursday, October 14th, 2010 — 12:03pm PDT

      My ideal date night is drinking wine and watching MadMen!

    38. BrianThursday, October 14th, 2010 — 5:49pm PDT

      My girlfriend and I have been on many date nights to watch the Giants, it’s a tradition!

    39. GraceFriday, October 15th, 2010 — 10:20am PDT

      Definitely some hard-hitting hockey and beer.

    40. Michelle WilliamsonSaturday, October 16th, 2010 — 2:22pm PDT

      I’d love to see the Giant’s play! I’ve never seen them before. My boyfriend and I are both really into hockey, and this would make an ideal date for us! We went on a Date Night to the Canucks for Christmas last year, and I’d love to have a similar experience!

    41. Rachael QSunday, October 17th, 2010 — 12:22am PDT

      Burgers and beer at a brew pub, a hockey game and then some gooey, chocolately goodness for dessert before heading home.

    42. GeriSunday, October 17th, 2010 — 9:56pm PDT

      How bout a Motorcycle Chase through Vancouver, followed by Sunset on Spanish Banks and Gelato @ Yaletown Gelato!
      That’s what my boyfriend and I get up to on Summer Nights!

    43. JohnMonday, October 18th, 2010 — 12:20am PDT

      ideal date..watching the canucks game if shes into hockey..then eat/drink at a pub later !

    44. LBMonday, October 18th, 2010 — 10:11am PDT

      ideal date – a lot of free time in a cozy cabin by the ocean with a fireplace

    45. KimWednesday, October 20th, 2010 — 12:11pm PDT

      My ideal “date night” would be a nice dinner out then something fun afterward, like a giants game!
