Cold Weather Date Night Ideas
The trip is booked, the bags are packed, now it's time to have a little fun. Celebrate the groom-to-be with an unforgettable weekend of fresh eats, cold drinks and enough sports to get your adrenaline going well into the night.
Settle in at the Omni Dallas
Location, location, location. The Omni Dallas' prime location in Downtown Dallas makes it a no brainer for your bachelor weekend HQ. The suites are sweet, the restaurants are solid and the bars are stocked with every drink your heart desires. The Owners Box is a great rally point once everyone arrives. Enjoy the big game on their 16-foot screen while sipping on a cold drink or kick it on the patio while you prep for the weekend ahead.
Every weekend should start with an axe in your hand, right? Kick off the weekend with some friendly competition at Bad Axe Throwing Dallas. Create some friendly competition with your boys as you hurl tack-sharp axes at the bullseye. It's the perfect place to show off your skills, have fun and share a few laughs along the way.
You're never too old for a pizza party. Don't be surprised if you're greeted at the door of Serious Pizza in Deep Ellum by tattooed pizzaiolos who spin pizza dough a few feet above their heads before it's baked to perfection and cut into hearty slices of pure deliciousness. If you're feeling extra hungry, test your will power with their 30/40 challenge. We dare you to finish off a 30-inch, one-topping pizza and wash it down with a 40-ounce beer (water or soda is available as well) within an hour to win. Not a single person has conquered this challenge. Maybe you'll be the first?
