For a throwback date night that won’t break the bank but will fetch maximum cuteness points, hit the links for a few rounds of mini golf at Sherman Oaks Castle Park. Sure, classy restaurants and elegant lounges are romantic, but they don’t have that suburban nostalgia that speaks to the kid inside of you. With three 18-hole courses, batting cages, and an arcade (with tickets you can trade for prizes!), you and your date will flash back to your younger days, a time when weekend excursions such as these were what you lived for. As the sun sets and the course lights illuminate the structures of each hole — windmills, haunted houses, an Aztec temple, and castles — some playful date night competition is in order. Show off your silky smooth putting stroke, complete with a little Tiger Woods fist pump for every birdie — don’t forget to keep score for those all-important bragging rights! Take your time making your way from hole to hole — should golfers behind you get antsy to leapfrog you, go ahead and let them play through, using the opportunity to get cozy with your date on the wooden benches available at every hole. Be sure to go after dark as this is when there are less kids and more couples.
