Stuck in a dating rut? Tired of dinner and a movie? In this week's "Three Things" -- here are three affordable date places in the twin cities:
1. For an afternoon date, take in a tour at Messina Hof Wineries in Bryan. An hour-long tour and taste test costs $5 and you'll even score a souvenir wine glass.
2. If you're looking to spend some quality time with your honey and get in a little work out, the bike trails at Lake Bryan will only set you back another five bucks. When the sun goes down, pull up a chair at The Hook overlooking the water, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the entertainment.
3. Get into the holiday spirit with a drive through College Station's Christmas in the Park. Enjoy Central Park's twinkling lights any day of the week. On the weekends, sip on hot cocoa and snuggle up with your sweetie on a hayride, all free of charge.
