The opportunity to play outside with large groups of strangers usually ends with fifth-grade graduation. Today’s side deal lets you revisit the joys of recess without getting weird looks. For $12, you’ll get a 45-day membership that gets you access to all classes, adventures, and events at DFW Outdoors, Dallas’s active outdoor, sport, and social club.
Making friends is hard as a grown-up. You can’t pass notes across your cubicle asking co-workers to circle their feelings about you, or entice potential friends with your pog collection anymore. DFW Outdoors makes it easy: you sign up for any of the adventurous exploits that pique your interest (such as hiking, tubing, or canoeing) and get to be active with other like-minded individuals. Some events are free for members (a Brewfest beer tasting); for others (film viewings, hikes, and paragliding), you’ll pay a discounted member rate.
While modern technology has crippled human social skills, leaving you suctioned to a keyboard and communicating with other humans primarily through status updates and dialogue-lasers, this deal can save you from a total robotic transformation. By surrounding yourself with living, breathing humans and throwing yourself into situations lacking holograms, you’ll re-learn how to express yourself without using angry emoticons.
DFW Outdoors isn’t just a singles mixer for Indiana Jones-types; it’s also perfect for couples. If you and your common-law husband have lost touch with your families and friends, these classes will help you remember that more people is always more merrier.
