I have always found that the most successful dates, first dates especially, usually involve activities that create conversation. There is nothing worse than sitting at a table staring at one another asking the same old questions. What’s your sign? What’s your favorite smell? Which celebrity do you think would make the best bounty hunter? These situations and questions are not the best way to get another date.
In addition to these activities, there does need to be a meal included in The Perfect Date. After a night of laughter and fun, The Crab Shack in Crofton can keep the party going. There is no meal more fun and adventurous than picking crabs, and the experience is so much better when you are there to have fun. You are going to get dirty, so to heck with it, throw on the bibs and embrace the mess. It is all part of the fun. The Crab Shack in Crofton is right down the road from the Night Hawk Golf Center, the best place to go for activities and laughter.
The Night Hawk Golf Center is Maryland’s Mecca for activities and laughter. There is a Driving Range, Par 3 Golf Course, FootGolf Course, and a batting cage with your choice of baseball or softball and speed options from slow to very fast. Saving the best for last, there is a Mini-Golf Course as well. If you cannot find fun and laughter on a date with these kinds of activities to choose from, then there is something wrong with you.
The Driving Range is open day and night, with 36 lighted tees, some with covers for comfort in any weather. There is a putting green if you want to practice your short game, but a lot of us need to be over at the practice sand bunker learning how to get out of the sand. You cannot putt from the sand trap, so one step at a time. It is understood that you may not come prepared with golf clubs and that is ok. Night Hawk has rental and demo clubs available.
Foot Golf is a growing activity that is perfect for the non-golfer. It mixes soccer and golf on a modified course, where players kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. Foot Golf is a lot of fun, but Mini Golf is still where it’s at. I know that Mini Golf is the cliché first date activity, but it works.
The Perfect Date involves fun, spontaneity, FOOD, and direction. There must be a solid game plan. No waffling. That game plan needs to be this simple…
1) Go to Nighthawk and participate in activities that provide laughter and fun.
2) Go to The Crab Shack in Crofton and enjoy the freshest Maryland Blue Crabs and more!
The Perfect Date.
