Kids, this is the story of how I met your mother, and it was all thanks to KCtoday.

Ok, so maybe that’s not exactly how the 2000s sitcom went, but if Ted Mosby had consulted us for date night ideas, we could’ve shaved the show down to two seasons (and saved his kids a lot of time).

Regardless, whether you’ve met “the one” or are hoping to impress someone new, we’ve got 25+ local date night ideas that are legen — wait for it — dary.

🏈 And the Super Bowl LVIII winner is...

Who will win Super Bowl LVIII? To answer that, we turn to our esteemed sports correspondents: the Southern Stingrays + the Weedy Sea Dragons.

Kansas City SEA LIFE Aquarium staff baited Chiefs + 49ers helmets, then watched as the animals chowed on the headgear chum that tasted like winning. Both the stingrays and the sea dragons chose to dine with the Chiefs, solidifying them as Super Bowl champs (and the 49ers as chumps).

If and when the Chiefs win, this will be the second year in a row SEA LIFE Aquarium’s animals correctly chose the winner of the Super Bowl.
The Buy
A Curry Up Broth Bomb, which will flavor five to eight portions of soup, beans, chili, or whatever you want to cook. Hello healthy, yummy dinner.

I’ll be out of town attending my friend’s graduation from nursing school so I’ll have to miss Boulevardia this year. You could say it will be my Boulevardia of broken dreams. (I’m sorry, I’ll see my way out.)
