Cook your own meal!

Sign up for a cooking class

A cooking class is always fun since you will learn how to cook and maybe even cook it for your partner one day. Cooking is not everyone’s cup of tea, and not everyone’s a chef πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ So sign up for a cooking class and enjoy your Monday night!

Spa night

Street food

Ice cream
