Bolder Sisters, it’s been a while since we’ve talked about dating. In the past we’ve focused on how to flirt with swag and discussed the type of mate you’ll attract when you don’t love yourself enough. This time I thought we’d put some thought and energy into something a little bit different; a fun new date night idea.
Whether you’re married or anxiously waiting to ask out the cute fella you’ve been checking out recently, planning a unique date night experience could be loads of fun.
Last week my husband and I enjoyed our first Museum Hack Tour at the Art Institute of Chicago. If you aren’t familiar, visit www.museumhack.com to learn more. Museum Hack’s tag line is “NOT YOUR GRANDMA’S TOUR.” Believe me it wasn’t. What it is, is a great opportunity to do something a little out of the ordinary, especially for date night.
Typically, with most museum tours there’s walking, talking and you’re done. Our experience was a little more than that. Our guide, Sarah, wasn’t your average tour guide. She knew the museum, the art and a little backstory on a few of the artists. She also brought her own bold personality to the tour and challenged us with games and a couple of opportunities to use our imagination with the artwork. Bolder Sisters, you already know how I feel about bold and different. Sarah was a mix of energy, fun and creativity.
The tour was outside of the box for both my husband and me, neither of us are frequent museum visitors. For couples just starting to date, a Museum Hack tour is the perfect way to break the ice and ease some of the nervousness, as it is truly an interactive experience. For those of you who are married, it’s something different to do that breaks up the routine.
A few of the highlights of the tour included the games we played as a group, learning about Georgia O’Keeffe, the artist known as the “Vagina Painter” and being taught how to properly wear a tiara. My husband and I even found our spirit sculptures. I also learned about an unintelligent art thief and a painfully shy artist, Joseph Cornell, whose phrase before he died “I wish I hadn’t been so shy,” will stick with me for a very long time. Overall, my husband and I thought the tour was something fun to do.
Again, if you’re searching for something new, different and even bold to experience, Museum Hack is definitely an option. Remember, it’s not your grandma’s tour. To learn more, check them out at www.museumhack.com.
