BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

SOUTH METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

If you had a rough week, take your date to Range, Guns and Safes to blow off some steam. Every Wednesday, this range, located in Forest Park, costs $10 for the first hour of target practice for male/female couples. Subsequent hours are $12 each.

Klea Blackhurst at The Centre, October 31st

On Sunday, October 31st, at 3:00 p.m., the Patrons of the Centre present “Klea Blackhurst” at The Centre (1523 Lower Fayetteville Road, Newnan).

Klea Blackhurst has been charming audiences Everything The Traffic Will Allow nationwide since its New York debut in 2001. This show is her loving tribute to the songs made famous by legendary stage personality Ethel Merman. The concert highlights what is arguably the greatest body of show music ever written for a single performer.

Everything the Traffic Will Allow is not a recreation of Ms. Merman, but a paean to the great Broadway legend. The show is a happy reminder of Ethel Merman’s undeniable importance to both the history of twentieth century entertainment and to the unbridled jubilation of show business at its best.

To reserve tickets visit The Centre, Scott’s Bookstore in Downtown Newnan and Morgan’s Jewelers in Ashley Park.
