Four Date Night Ideas in Milwaukee

You take a gamble on love, so why not take your love gambling? It’s a unique Milwaukee date night idea he or she won’t soon forget. Besides the obvious—slots, bingo and table games—Potawatomi Bingo Casino is home to an array of entertainment options that might just win your sweetie’s heart (add a little gambling and it might, at least, win you some cash)!


1. Dinner & A Show

Dinner is $55 per person, $75 per person with wine supplement. View the date night menu or make your reservations today.

2. Sunday Funday

Spend your day of rest rooting for the Green & Gold at The Fire Pit or The Fire Pit’s side bar. There are plenty of high-definition screens, plus food & drink specials to fuel your “game.” Plus, Fire Keeper’s Club members get Football Fan Club prize entries for every $6 spent on food and drinks during the game. You’ll receive unlimited entries beginning one hour prior to kick off until the end of the third quarter. So go ahead, wine & dine your date…and see if they’ve got team spirit! It’s the next best thing to tailgating at Lambeau.

3. Comedy Night

Make your date smile (in a good way) when you take him or her to dinner at The Buffet, followed by a Bonkerz Comedy show in The Northern Lights Theater. Your date is sure to get his or her fill of entertainment from start to finish—and you can gauge just how healthy your partner’s appetite and sense of humor are!

Another reason to smile: It’s an inexpensive night out. Bonkerz Comedy shows are just $5 or free with your Fire Keeper’s Club card.

4. The Overnight Date

Whether you’re married and looking for a night away from the kids, or this is date #22 and you’re looking for new activities to do together, an overnight getaway to Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee is both easy and affordable.

We’ve partnered with a variety of downtown and suburban hotels, featuring discounted rates when you Stay & Play. Plus, stay at any of our partner hotels and you’ll receive $15 in FKC Reward Play after 30 slot points earned. (Starting in summer 2014: Stay at our new on-site 381-room hotel! Construction now in progress.)

After you settle in, let our free shuttle give you a ride to and from the Casino. Challenge your better half to a riveting game of roulette, an exciting game of slots, or the ever-popular bingo. A little flirtatious competition and sparks will be flying! Then, it’s the perfect time to indulge in a decadent, romantic dinner at Dream Dance Steak, Wild Earth Cucina Italiana or RuYi. After dinner, why not head to Bar 360 or The Fire Pit’s side bar for a night cap (or two) and some free live entertainment?


Too many choices, too little time? Make it a multi-night visit and try them all! Whatever your date night style, Potawatomi Bingo Casino is a sure bet.
