9 BFF Date Ideas That AREN'T Brunch

When it comes to bonding with our best friends, we've got nothin' against brunch, spa afternoons, and other girly staples. But, while all of those expected activities are a grand ol' time, sometimes we need to break away from the usual routine. Sure, we'll always appreciate a mimosa (or three), but there's something to be said for out-of-the-ordinary activities that make us say, "Remember that one time we...?"
So, we've rounded up nine ideas for fun, unforgettable friend dates — whether you go for a one-time-only adventure or create a new tradition for you and your bestie. (Yes, there may be costumes involved.) Try one, try 'em all — but whatever you do, we can promise you a good time. And hey — you can always go out for brunch afterward.
