Congratulations to Matt and Emily for winning the Dallas $40 Date Night Challenge! You can read their winning write-up Here!

For this $40 Date Night Challenge we will put 4 couples from the city of angels up against each other. The rules are very similar to last time. I challenged them with the set of rules below, they did a write-up, and now you vote on the winner to win CASH!

I’m actually surprised to see that in a city as large and diverse as LA, two couples ended up visiting the same place. I’d say that’s a good sign that the restaurant/bar is pretty good!

I’m also surprised to see that one person blatantly broke 2 of the rules…but I’m not in the business of disqualifying, and the writeup was done well. I will let you all determine that via votes.

Here are the rules as presented to those who accepted:

  1. The date night must include dinner, drinking, and entertainment
  2. Dinner cannot be at a national restaurant chain, local chains are OK. Don’t eat at home.
  3. Entertainment cannot be bowling or a movie
  4. Drinks (yes alcohol) must be purchased, not brought, and not shared
  5. Transportation costs (gas, parking, train, etc…) do not need to be included in the $40.00
  6. Yes, a date is 2 people
  7. If you use a gift card the amount spent still counts towards the $40
  8. Take pictures
  9. This isn’t a “who you know” night, so while we all love free stuff and “hook-ups” if you use them, account for what the normal cost would be out of your $40
  10. Taxes don’t count in the $40
  11. Coupons are allowed and encouraged if you have them

The links for the write ups and voting are below. The voting will be open for 10 days from today.
