Cultural Dates
(for Ages 16-18)

Attend a good local stage production (university, high school, community, church, or theater group). Check your local paper's entertainment section for alternatives. Go afterwards for a light snack or dessert.

Paint a picture together and "accidentally" get into a paint fight. Make sure you were clothes that can be replaced.

Be tourists in your own city. Take a foot or bus tour of the monuments, museums, landmarks, memorials, etc. Get brochures from your local travel bureau or information center. Don’t forget your cameras. Seek out a popular restaurant for lunch or dinner.

Select a play. Bring enough scripts, props and costumes (everyone can bring something). If there are more parts than people, no problem. Video tape the play. If you have enough people, select more than one play and have a competition.

Get together with some others and do a readers’ theater. Go to a library and check out several copies of a play you’ve always wanted to see, assign parts, and have a dramatic evening.

Rent the video "Music and Lyrics" (2007). Then try to write a song together. Choose a familiar tune, then add your own lyrics.

Wander around a university or college campus any time during the day. Stop by the student union building for lunch. Seek out art and science exhibits. Ask about attending a planetarium lab. If you know someone in the drama department, you can watch a play during rehearsal or even during the casting try-outs. Check the music department for recital and concerts that don't charge admission.. If you plan to tour during the school hours, visit a class in an auditorium.

Attend a summer rodeo. Almost every big city has a rodeo, and in some places, even high schools compete. Check the internet to find an event. Wear jeans, boots, and a cowboy hat. You don't have to wear boots and hat, if you don't have them, but you can check out the local thrift store.

Have a cultural progressive dinner. Eat an appetizer at the first house (Italian ice to cleanse the pallet), soup at the second (Chinese egg-drop soup), main course at a third home (Mexican fiesta with tacos and beans), and dessert at the last home (French pastries). To add additional authenticity, add music and decorations at each location.

Get a travel guidebook for your city (library or a bookstore). Visit attractions that are off the beaten path (or that you have never seen). A guidebook may also contain self-guided walking tours that are fun and interesting. Or get a guidebook for a nearby city and make a day trip there. Plan to grab lunch at an outdoor café.

Take a dance class and learn a new dance. Classes are offered through private dance studios, local recreation departments, churches, and schools. Dance lessons are also available online. Or invite an instructor to teach your group. Remember, practice makes perfect, but it takes perseverance.

Spend a quiet evening listening to beautiful music. Pick out some of the classics. Then sit back and enjoy. For variety, put together a dessert fondue.

Share your talents with one another. Sit your date down and play him/her a musical number. Then have him/her share one of his/her talents with you.

Take some paints and an art pad. Along with these, carry a packed picnic basket with fried chicken, potato salad, and other tidbits as well as punch and homemade pie. Take your date to a beautiful spot to paint. Compare paintings. On a follow-up date, your masterpieces can be completed in frames of your own creation.

Listen to a radio countdown of the "Top 10" songs. Together rate each piece on artistry, value of words, overall effect, and music.
