Date Night on a Dime!

By Alina Murcar, Marketing Intern

This last weekend Ryan came to visit me in Spokane, so it was my turn to come up with a fun date night! I brainstormed ideas of what we could do with a tight college budget. We finally decided on a walk through Manito Park in the evening, including the Japanese Gardens, and a stop by the Manito Park Bench Café for a break on the benches to soak it all in. We then followed up this little adventure with a Redbox movie, microwave popcorn, and our favorite candy and drinks!

We saw The Imitation Game—it's an incredible movie with a riveting plot and excellent cast. Definitely recommend seeing this—we give it two thumbs up!

Our favorite candy? Well, Ryan likes anything Haribo brand and I personally like a nice Snickers bar. The popcorn was lightly season with ranch powder just for a little extra zing. Mmmm...tasty!

So the total for our entire date night was:

Walk through Manito Park: Priceless
Redbox movie: $1.50
Snickers and Haribo candy: $4.00
Two cold drinks from Safeway: $4.00
10 pack of popcorn bags: $5.00

Total date cost: $14.50!

This summer there are very inexpensive/free outdoor movies at Riverfront Park and at The Shop in the Perry District each week. Click the links below to see the movie listings!
