Rendezvous Club may not have a hidden stock of cupid’s arrows, but it does have its fair share of date cards. While they may not be as whimsical as love-yielding weaponry, club founders Hillary and Chris have found they tend to be just as effective. At some chapters, Rendezvous Club's hosts hand the cards out during speed-dating parties and dinner-dating events that serve three-course meals. Using them, singles can jot down the names, characteristics, and preferred Monopoly game pieces of people they’re interested in meeting again. For those who prefer more organic dating atmospheres, Select locations feature less-structured singles parties and mix-and-mingle events that round up singles and let them converse on their own, aided by complimentary appetizers.

Chalkboard menus and sports memorabilia adorn the inside of The Sin Bin Sports Grill, where full lunch, dinner, and brunch menus keep bellies as full as the bar’s event calendar. Sports fans join their ilk beneath 106 inches of projected television screen, and comedy fans take in standup one to two times a week. During lunch and dinner, tapas, blue-cheese-decked strip steaks, and burgers accompany the entertainment; and come midday on weekends, brunchers can sink their teeth into a variety of benedicts: blackened chicken, smoked salmon, and portobello gouda are just a few of the options.

Dunbar Theatre keeps things simple: fresh popcorn, comfortable seats, a friendly staff, and one big screen. But in simplicity is something fresh. Those newly installed seats have enough room that audiences can stretch their legs, armrests raise for cuddling, and a balcony lets viewers change up their sightlines. Old-fashioned styles aside, the movie house stays up-to-date with recently upgraded projection technology and a sound system with the clarity of 10,000 Morgan Freemans. Located near UBC, the theatre is within walking distance of numerous diners and cafes, making it a date-night no-brainer.

Fighting Chance Productions has been praised by the Vancouver Sun and Vancouver Courier for engaging its audiences with a diverse and dynamic playbill. As artistic director and founder of the nonprofit company, Ryan Mooney has amassed an enchanting ensemble to woo theatregoers in the 2011–2012 season with renditions of classics such as The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Charles Dickens's final, unfinished novel, and the sultry musical Sweet Charity, the melodious tale of a dancer-for-hire's attempts to conceal her profession from her bashful betrothed. Patrons can savour the quirky comedy and emotional candour of an all-male troupe performance of Jon Maran's The Temperamentals, a play about the first LGBT organization in the United States and the love affair between its founding members. The farcical woes of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum will resonate with viewers also grappling with the plight of mistaken identities and low-thread-count togas in the same historic Jericho Arts Centre in which Cathy Wilmot exhibits one-woman wizardry channelling the reclusive estrangement of socialites Edith Beale and Little Edie Beale in the production of Grey Gardens.
