At Perplebunny’s Axe House, an axe master will show you how to throw and then teach you how to play games.  Axe throwing slots are available by the hour on a reservation or walk-in basis.  Be sure to wear close-toed shoes, and keep in mind that you have to be 8 or older to throw.

At Drkula’s 32 Bowl, check out an engaging new spin on a familiar activity with HyperBowling.  Drkula’s HyperBowling system combines the real world-environment with video game-style technology, as you rack up points by hitting colorful targets on the lanes with your ball.  After the game, grab a round of drinks and share some appetizers at Drac’s Pub.

Foodie Date Night Idea in Inver Grove Heights

Instead of choosing one place to eat, check out a few of Inver Grove Heights’ local restaurants with a progressive dinner.  Start your evening with locally-brewed craft beer and appetizers at Inver Grove Brewing, where the menu features elevated pub fare like duck wings, beer-steamed mussels, and oysters rockefeller.  If you like seafood, check out Mallards or Iwa Sushi for your main course; other tasty options include B-52 Burgers and Brew for gourmet burgers and Los Portales Bar and Grill for traditional Mexican cuisine.  Finish the night by sampling six different flavors with an ice cream flight of mini scoops at Hometown Sweets.
