For the past few weeks, we’ve been telling you to skip the dinner and a movie routine, and make memories together instead.
“Experience dates” inspire conversation and connection, and if you’re geeks or gamers, we’ve got some suggestions for Valentine’s Day.
Looking for places to get your game and geek on?
Open the doors to the nerd heaven that is Secret Headquarters on First Avenue and you’ll find the perfect gift!
Everything from comics to pop vinyl, actual vinyl, vintage models, toys, video games and consoles, there’s a huge selection here, but the date?
That’s in the arcade.
Play favorites like Donkey Kong, Qbert, Ms. Pacman, Centipede and Frogger …let them win, or crush them and earn bragging rights…depending on the type of couple you are.
For a computer gaming experience like no other, head to Evansville Esports.
If you like competition, they have weekly gaming events and tournaments…like Friday Night Fights.
Show off your controller skills with Smash Bros., Street Fighter, and Mortal Combat.
All this excitement is just five bucks at the door and two a bracket…so cheap date…and don’t feel obligated to tell your partner that.
And then there’s High Score Saloon.
(They have alcohol.)
And the arcade games are free.
Think of it…over seventy of the most highly sought out games at your disposal!
And yeah, they have pinball too.
