Great Dates / Cheap Dates
Any couple looking to get out for under $40
With a little creativity, date night doesn’t have to cost a lot.
If you’re willing to go out on an unconventional evening—Tuesday—you can eat well and have fun with an under-$40 dinner and movie outing. Bar Louie offers dollar burgers on Tuesdays with the purchase of a drink, and the Regal offers discounted movie tickets.
Start off at Bar Louie, located in the “restaurant row” at the Galleria Mall. The fun pub atmosphere provides a low-key place to enjoy a drink or two and dinner. Order one drink, and you’ll get a craft burger for a dollar during its “$1 Burger Night” (dine-in only). Chicken breast or ground turkey burgers are also available. (Burgers typically run about $11 here.) This deal runs every Tuesday, 4 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.
In the age of Netflix and Amazon Prime, it’s important to have a real big-screen experience once in a while. After dinner, head over to the Regal Galleria, where movie tickets are discounted to $7.35 all day on Tuesdays (regular prices are $12.05 for adults and $9.55 for seniors).
