It’s All Downhill from Here

Skiing is a great date for the adventurous!  Whether you’re whisking down a bunny hill or rising in midair on the terrain park, if all goes well, the adrenaline rush won’t be just because you did your first double diamond.   Ski lifts were made so you could get a little closer to your partner. (Otherwise, they would have used trains.)  Snow glistens like clean and clear crystals as you glide gently above the wintry paradise, snuggling with your date, cold noses bumping as you sensually snog.  If you get to the bottom of the hill and you can’t get enough lip action, just grab the closest chairs to the fireplace in the lodge or go back to the cabin.

The Poconos has a variety of ski places.

Philadelphia Has History, And You Can Make Some Part III

I’m madly in love with Robert Langdon, but you don’t have to be. In fact, I don’t want the competition.  Here’s a date that will appeal to author Dan Brown fans, history buffs, and architecture addicts alike. The Grand Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania is located in Philadelphia.  They don’t call this gorgeous structure grand without reason, but don’t take my word.  Take the tour.  Check out pagrandlodge.org.

Get Lucky

Put your stereotypes about bowling alleys into the gutter.  Lucky Strike is not your typical bowling alley.  You’d be more likely to see the characters from Across the Universe knocking down pins than the characters from King of the Hill.   Complete with lanes, billiards, bars, bottle service, and a menu, Lucky Strike is more of an upscale lounge where there’s more to do than just sit.  So get lucky…     bowlluckystrike.com

Wine and Dine

You only have one chance to make a first impression.  The Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City, NJ offers an amazing dishes from brunch to dinner.  Be sure to tour the winery and learn how they make some of the best local flavors including their specialty, Blueberry Wine.  Remember to drink responsibly.  Spending a couple nights at the hotel on the premises is an excellent way to extend your romantic time, but try to make reservations in advance.

Shower your date with kisses while learning all about how candy is made inside Hershey’s Chocolate World.  Be sure to stop in the shop and pick up some favorites to take home or take back to the hotel.

The Magical World of Love

If you haven’t been to The Piazza at Schmidt’s in Philadelphia, you need to stop what you are doing and go there.  Right now.  Home to galleries, unique shops, bars, and restaurants, what more could you want?

Alright, fine.  You also want some magic in your relationship just like everyone else.  Well, The Piazza at Schmidt’s has that, too.  Head to Trickzone.  No, it’s not like some kinky South Street shop.  Trickzone is home to magic tricks.  Be dazzled by the trade, buy some tricks of your own, or, perhaps, see about having a magic party on the premises.  They’re recommended for children’s birthdays, but asking never hurt, and creativity always gets a gold star when it comes to dating.

And Trickzone gets a gold star for the debating couple: “Is love truly magical or is it just an illusion?”  One stop here and you might even be able to magically figure out a way to get your date to stop talking and make out with you already.  Just maybe.   trickzonephilly.com

Love CAN be a game…

Invite your date to your place and get right to business on the floor.  Before you do, make sure you have all the essential props: markers, crayons, pens, pencils, glue, scissors, and paper.  Throw in some glitter if you dare.  Hey, it can be as kinky as you want it to be.  But you’re still wondering what IT is?  It’s a game.

Make a game about your love.  It can be as original as you like, but if you’re stuck on ideas, you can get some help from the pros.  Google Make-Your-Own-Opoly  and you’ll find a number of online shops that distribute the Parker Brothers game that you can design at home.  If Apples to Apples is more your thing, click on this site to make your custom version.  otb-games.com/apples/apples_blank.html

Love is a game.  Play it all night long.

Fashion designers will surely want to visit famous sewer Betsy Ross’ House before heading to Urban Outfitters for some shopping.  Sure, Urban Outfitters is international, but Philly is where it started. bestyrosshouse.org and urbanoutfitters.com
