Cheap date ideas: Wine tasting | Baseball | Art | Museum

Looking for free and cheap date ideas? We have you covered for inexpensive dates in Atlanta and surrounding cities. All dates are $40 or less — and many are absolutely free! Get off the couch and go have a blast.

Spring Fever

Baseball season is here. The Atlanta Braves tickets are on sale, but if you can’t wait around for the regular season to start and going to Florida for spring ball is out of the question, head on over to Georgia Tech for a game. The Yellow Jackets have a three-game series against Xavier this weekend, but plenty more games are on tap. Tickets are only $4 each.

Free art gallery

Have you ever passed through an airport or other public venue and admired the art on display. In many instances, it was the work of high school students. I am always impressed by such talent and creativity and do not mind going to see the work of young emerging artists. The Fayette Art Center will host Brilliance In Charcoal and Graphite, featuring and middle and high school artists. The free opening reception is March 7 from 2 p.m.-5:30 p.m. The exhibit will be on display March 7 through March 30.

Wine Tasting

Everyone is encouraged to uncork a bottle of wine on Feb. 27. If you don’t have a bottle reserved for just such a special occasion, consider attending a free wine tasting at the Mercantile where they exploring affordable Chilean wines. This is a free event from noon to 3 p.m. The wines come from Terra Andina’s reserve collection. All around town you’ll find restaurants waiving through cork fees. Also, from 2-4 p.m., the Wine Cellars in Smyrna will have a free wine tasting featuring six different wines and a selection of cheeses.

“Lyndon and Lady Bird”

I’ll admit that since moving to Atlanta, I’ve yet to visit the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum. The museum hosts many talks and events, including one at 2 p.m. on Saturday featuring Bill and Sue Wills. The event is free with $8 paid museum admission.

Hang out at the bar at the Mexican Restaruant, pick one out of the heard buy her a few Margaritias, tell after she tucks the kids in, to ditch her old man and meet me at room 120. PRICELESS…
