World Cup dinner date
To be honest, you have absolutely no excuse not to squeeze in date night during the World Cup season with the wide range of restaurants and bars available in Singapore offering special World Cup sets and feasts. If the missus insists on a fancy evening, you have your available options in the form of Ce La Vie to a good old feast of ribs at McGettigan’s Clarke Quay. At the end of the day, it’s a happy ending for the both of you – you get to keep score of the match and she gets an Instagram approved evening without pulling a Daryl Aiden Yow. Not all of us have a credit card spending limit like Cristiano Ronaldo, hence I would suggest hunting down discount promo deals to avoid paying a limb’s worth of dinner and drinks.
Get schooled together about the World Cup
If you are bored of the usual lunch, dinner, coffee, and all sorts of food-related dates, you might want to check out the Singapore Sports Hub Festival, happening throughout the World Cup until July 30th at the Singapore Sports Hub. The festival is pretty much like a football-themed fun fair except that admission is free of charge. You and your partner can get to know each other while enjoying a myriad of activities like workshops, tournaments, music performances and food stalls.

In the spirit of the games, you might suggest a World Cup jersey shopping date instead of the usual handbag and shoe trip.
