Where to Take your date

There are plenty of places to take your date. (Angela Gzowski photo)

I, Samantha Elmsley, Queen of Romance, pronounce myself an expert on where to woo a lover in Halifax. Behold my suggestions.

  1. The Company House (2202 Gottingen Street) for an acoustic concert. Picture candlelit tables and cozy seating. Plus, someone is there to entertain you, so you don’t have to make a fool of yourself by trying to maintain a conversation.
  2. Williams Lake (from rotary, continue south onto Purcells Cove Road, turn right at Williams Lake Road). Possibly save this for a later date, when being sweaty and exhausted from the bike ride out to this gorgeous, secluded swimming spot won’t be a huge turnoff.
  3. Obladee Wine Bar (1600 Barrington Street), for when you need to fool them into thinking you’re sophisticated.
  4. The boardwalk on the Halifax harbour for an ice cream. Enough said.
  5. Your kitchen—cook them dinner. This impresses literally every student you will ever meet. If it doesn’t win your date over, cook for me instead. I guarantee my awe.
