Have Fun with Him for Free

1. Park your car in a secluded place and kiss like you were in high school. Crank slow jazz, roll back the seats, and fog up those windows, baby!

2. Board games aren't b-o-r-i-n-g if you play them right. Put a naughty twist on a classic and invent something fun, like strip checkers — each time one of you jumps a chip, the other person has to peel off an article of clothing. Hey, everyone wins!

3. Does your city boast world's largest ball of twine or perhaps a chicken with a human face? Visit to discover strange stuff in your area. Then go eyeball the bizarre findings with your man. Bring your camera!

4. Peruse to find the number of a local wine shop. Call to see if they offer free tastings (many do!), and then make a day of it. 

5. Put on a ratty concert tee and ripped jeans and head to a dive bar. While you're jamming to Bon Jovi on the jukebox, challenge your guy to a game of darts and, okay, spring for a $1 draft.

6. Flag your dream home in the real estate section of the newspaper. Then do a fantasy walk-through with "The Mister" during an open house.

7. Rock the house on the house. Type the words free concert along with your town and state into the search engine to find a gratis gig in your neck of the woods. Great bands play at no cost on occasion, so there's a good chance you'll get lucky.

8. Have an urban campfire. Fire up a hibachi on the front stoop or in the backyard; grab a box of graham crackers, a couple of chocolate bars, a bag of giant marshmallows, and two skewers and roast s'mores in the great outdoors.

9. Head to the court with your guy and play hoops. Practice free throws and three-pointers before asking him to help you perfect your layup.

10. Take an architectural tour of a nearby city. Spend a few minutes researching the buildings online and then go visit them in person. You may have passed by cool sites you'd never even noticed.
