Explore new parts of the city
It's so easy to get into a rut of going to the same spots and seeing the same people. While your favorite 'hoods are your favorites for a reason, you could be missing out on a whole crop of new places and faces. Avoid the whole “You, again” issue and try a different coffee shop, like Magnolias Sous le Pont, or stop by a different grocery store -- you may be pleasantly surprised by who you run into.
Make new friends during a bar crawl
We recently participated in a '90s-themed bar crawl and had a blast hopping from bar to bar and meeting new people along the way. Organized bar crawls provide that “We’re all in this together” mentality, and we found it was super easy to chat with new groups as we progressively made our way to each participating spot. Not to mention, wearing a backpack, Wu-Tang T-shirt and a scrunchie is a great conversation starter for the non-crawlers. Themed or not, there are frequent bar crawl events that roll through Dallas, and we highly encourage you sign up for the next one!
Learn something new at bar trivia nights
Test your trivia skills with a little friendly competition at one of the many pub quiz nights Dallas restaurants regularly host. This is an interactive spin on a group dinner and encourages you to get the conversational juices flowing right off the bat. Plus, it’s a sure-fire way to find a new boo with beauty AND brains. Stick around after the winners have been crowned and you can debate that one answer you SWEAR you knew over drinks with an opposing team. Check out Geeks Who Drink for a schedule of weekly trivia nights at a variety of Dallas bars.
