Typically, bowling is a cliche first date idea but at The Goodnight, you can have your Mount Bonnell (blueberry sage-infused Waterloo gin with lime, seltzer, and Chambord) and drink it too. For a grown-up’s idea of a good time, try any number of the bar’s beers, wines, or cocktails while shooting pool, playing table tennis, or bowling strikes on the venue’s eight vintage lanes. When you get hungry from slinging balls, do the right thing with duck burger sliders dressed with smoked Gouda and apricot dijon purée.
Swing by the convenience store and stay awhile. At Whip In, even the pickiest paramour can find love amongst the 72 beer tap offerings unique to the multi-titled dhabapub, brewery, market, music venue, and grocery store. Try the house-brewed Flanders-style oud bruin Brownsahib or the Kalidurgale, and "end of the world" barley wine made with espresso, molasses, and cardamom.
