It's date night. You can argue about what you want to do setting the tone of the evening where you eat quickly, finish your wine quickly and hit the couch by 10 OR you can impress your significant other with some of my favorite spots. You are young, hip and full of energy so make some plans no matter how old you are.
Things to do North of Boston -
Dave & Busters Yes it's an arcade with pool tables! Not every thing has to be "adult"! It is a short distance from one of the areas best cocktail spots The Baldwin Bar that just happens to have been featured in Esquire magazine as one of the country's best for craft cocktails. It also happens to be one of my date night favorites.
You can't go wrong at The swanky Bancroft & Kings in Burlington or Lynnfield with Karaoke, Bowling, air hockey, darks, ping pong and more. Maybe High speed go Karts at K1 in Wilmington are more your speed?

Luna Theatre I know I said you were more adventurous than dinner and a movie and you definitely are BUT the Luna is unique, the antique charm and unique films set in Mill No 5 makes this one of the coolest spots in the area. Head to Coffee & Cotton and then check out a flick.
