Trolley Bike Anyone?
The Trolley Bike is an awesome event for any guy who wants to hang out with his buddies for a few drinks while taking in the downtown sites. All you need is at least eight to twelve of your closest buds and you will be on your way! Just be sure you read the rules and regulations first.
A Brewery Tour
Whether your man likes his brew hoppy, malty or dark, there is something for everyone on a brewery tour. In Springfield, Missouri, we have four breweries located within city limits: Mother’s Brewing Company, Springfield Brewing Company, Lost Signal Brewing Company and White River Brewing Company.

Go to a Concert or Catch a Live Show
One of the cool things about living in Springfield is the music scene. We are a small enough city to have some awesome local bands, but big enough to have some headliners grace us with their presence. Check out who is playing where by visiting 417Live.
Shoot off a Few Rounds at Cherokee Firearms
I was interviewing Brian and Christina Jackson for an article on what you need to know when buying or selling a house, and this is something he can’t wait to try out. It’s an indoor shooting range which opened on Kansas and College St, and you can get a $20 all day pass! Pretty sweet if you ask me.
Take a Grilling Class and Drink Some Beer While You are At It
Does your man want to be a grill master? Make him take a class first at Pits and Grills! Bbq, brisket, seafood, chicken, you name it! They keep some ice-cold beer in the fridge, pass around samples while cooking and even have an indoor draft hood so you can grill in a nice air-conditioned facility.
Whatever date you decide to take your man on in Springfield, Nixa, Ozark, Republic, Rogersville or wherever you are in the Ozarks, be sure to let us know (hey, we need ideas too)! Happy dating Springfield, Missouri!
