Winter is in full swing + so is our guide for making the most of date night this season.

Last year, we focused on Franklinton, and our eyes are still set on the art district, but this time it’s even easier than before. All three of our suggestions — dinner, drinks, and an activity — come from one location: The Idea Foundry. Let’s take a closer look.

🔨 Activity | Maker Date Night, 421 W. State St.

Date night needs to be fun + that’s exactly what you’ll find on Friday, Feb. 10 from 7-10 p.m. You and your partner will make your way through various maker stations with each one based on a different style of crafting, including woodworking, welding, and metal forming. If one looks daunting or unappealing, feel free to skip it and spend more time at a different stand, as guests typically get through four to six stands in one evening. Tickets are on sale now.

Can’t make it on Friday? This brunch option is available on Saturday, Feb. 11 + offers a similar experience from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

🍕 Dinner + Drinks | Build-your-own pizza

No need to leave for food as the DIY-adventure continues with dinner at the Idea Foundry, as guests can also build their own pizzas. Other options available include a cheese and charcuterie board for snacking, which will be paired with different types of wine, craft beer, and non-alcoholic options.

Looking for more afterwards? BrewDog Franklinton and Yellow Brick Pizza are less than a half mile away.
