First dates are almost always incredibly awkward. Activities help things move along, lessening the likelihood of unpleasant pauses in conversation. Target Free Thursday Nights at the Walker Art Center are loaded with things to do that will keep things moving along. Each month the museum schedules special events throughout the building for guests to enjoy. Happenings include spoken-word performances, film screenings, and tastings from chefs-in-residence at Gather by D'Damico. Art is a great conversation starter as well, and on Thursdays you can take in works in the galleries for free. Other options include wandering through the Sculpture Garden or visiting one of the museum's bars for a drink.
