Cupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Giddy Up at the RodeoCupid's Pulse Article: Date Idea: Giddy Up at the Rodeo

By Ché Blackwood

Put on a pair of Daisy Dukes, tie a cute flannel shirt above your belly-button and giddy-on up to a rodeo this weekend with your love. Whether you’re looking forward to the clowns, the bulls or just an excuse to be outside, you won’t ever forget a fresh outdoorsy day with cowboys (and your sweetie.)

Start the day off with a delicious BBQ. Make pulled pork sandwiches and ribs with your honey, both ensuring you’ll stay full while sticking within a western theme. Or, buy lunch at the rodeo, taking the opportunity to strike up conversation with the workers and other visitors. You may be surprised to hear the traveling life of the food vendor, or intrigued by the mother of one of the riders.

After the show, make sure to take a chance to pet the horses or see the bulls close up. You and your beau will have the chance to learn more about these animals we so rarely get to see, while also making one unforgettable memory together. Whether you love it or decide to never visit again, a rodeo date is not only a guaranteed fun time, but it will leave you with something to talk about for years to come.
