BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

NORTHWEST METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we’ve compiled a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

If you have an office crush, we have the place for you. Local lunch favorite, Brandi’s World Famous Hot Dogs serves up, according to some, one of the best dogs in town. This humble, hot dog restaurant is known for its Iced Tea and famous Chili Slaw Dog served on a perfectly steamed bun. Everything in this restaurant is under $9. So, both, your date and your pockets will thank you.
