It’s date night! It’s date night! This weekend, we are heading to Deadmonton haunted house – but we’ve covered that before. Here are some of the things you can check out this weekend for Date Night in Edmonton, getting out of your comfort zone, trying something new and getting out of the dinner and a movie rut.

Be an Axe-Hole

Get your lumberjack on and try axe throwing. I know, it sounds crazy. Once you get into it though, you might just be surprised by the healthy competition that it brings about. Fridays and Saturdays, the axe throwing range is open until Midnight, so you can get in a late night session, after dinner.
When: Friday and Saturday, 2 pm to 12 am
Where: Axe Hole (Book here)
