Dear Ellie,

There’s this cute girl I like and I want to ask her out, but I don’t have a car or much money to take her on a date. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Dear Jon K.,

Oooh! That’s so exciting! Luckily UW-Whitewater has many options for a fun date right on campus, especially down in the basement of the University Center.
If you haven’t been down there yet, there are places where you can eat, watch movies, play pool, or even bowl for a fair price.
The movies are usually really good options, either really new or really popular, like Doctor Strange (PG-13) last week and The Edge of Seventeen (R) this upcoming weekend.
Valentine’s Day weekend, they will be showing the drama/thriller Shut In (PG-13) so you and your sweetheart can cuddle during the intense parts.
You can get in for only $1 with your student ID. To bowl, different times mean different prices. But full price is about $2.50 per game and $1.50 for shoe rental.
Make sure to check the price times before you set up a date! Uno’s can be expensive but the pizza is to die for.
To check for other activities and other prices, go to the Down Under and see for yourself. This upcoming Feb. 9 there will be a live music performance with Rudy Currence, if that tickles your fancy, I would definitely recommend going.
As always, the Underground Dance Club is Feb. 23 9 p.m. to midnight, if you’re looking for something fun to do.
If you’re okay walking a bit to get to a date or if you’re up for using the Brown Cab, there are some cute little places over on Main Street, such as Tokyo, Jessica’s and other restaurants.
The SweetSpot Bakehouse that’s sure to sweeten your date in just the right way.
All in all, there are several options you have to take your girl out on a date with. Just be sure that, whatever you do, you both have fun.
