and a peak into our woodshop where we handcraft every McClure shuffleboard table.
Although shuffleboard may not seem like the most romantic activity to partake in on Valentine’s Day, there’s something admirable about a couple who can let loose and have some fun during the holiday in favor of a serious – and not to mention expensive – dinner for two. Instead, challenge your Valentine to a fun game of table shuffleboard, either bringing them to a local bar for a few drinks and some bonding time, or simply hosting that special someone in your game room – either way, you won’t be breaking the bank.
If you have your significant other over to your house, you can have a truly intimate tournament that is more playful than competitive. The beauty of shuffleboard is that it is an easy way to build bonds, and if you guys play a fun game of knock-off, follow it up with a nice dinner once the two of you have worked up a good enough appetite, it will truly be a Valentine’s Day to remember.
If you don’t have a shuffleboard table, there are plenty of restaurants where you can have a romantic dinner and still challenge your date to do battle on the table. Although many people associate shuffleboard with dive bars, even top-of-the-line restaurants across the country offer fine dining and table shuffleboard all in one package. For example, we’ve done a review in the past of Portland Oregon’s Sunshine Tavern on the McClure Tables blog, which is considered one of the go-to trendy destinations in the incredibly hip city. Other establishments like this exist across the country that are fantastic for a romantic meal, especially if this is your first big Valentine’s with your date – a game of shuffleboard can really break the ice.
