Everyone wins with a well thought out mixed-couples outing to Downtown Abilene.
Millennial Mixer Itinerary
Grab your best couple-friends and head to Downtown Abilene for a day both sexes will enjoy. Kick things off with a nice brunch at Abi-Haus, where the gals can enjoy mimosas, while the guys sip on a local IPA (or vice versa).
Once you’ve had your fill of fun and food, we’re sure the ladies will want to do their own thing (try the Girlfriends Getaway itinerary), while the men spend some time at Lone Star Dry Goods, where flannel, trucker caps and beard wax rule the day. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy a complimentary Shiner Bock while you pick out your purchases, or call ahead to arrange a haircut, beard sculpting or cut-throat shave at the in-house Kings Barbers, complete with 1920s barber chairs.
Down the block, find that elusive piece of hardware you’ve been searching for at Bible Hardware, a remnant of the past with down-home service.
Next, check out the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum, dedicated to telling the story of this one unit’s combat history in World War II.
Have a taste for fine tobacco? Then, stop in to The Leaf for a great selection of cigars, humidors and accessories. Oftentimes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Fire Escape. Spice up your outdoor kitchen or patio with furniture, fire pits and gourmet barbeque grills and accessories at this uniquely masculine store.
Call the gals, tell them to meet you at The Mill in a couple hours, and hop in the car for the short drive to Pappy Slocum and Sockdolager breweries in the SoDA District. Both offer the perfect setting for lighting up a stogie and ruminating on why it’s been so long since your group last enjoyed a visit to Downtown Abilene.
