Looking for a fun night on the town with your significant other, but don’t want to drop a ton of cash in the process? Then look no further than the South Fourth Street stretch of Downtown, which our readers have named the best place for a cheap date night for two years in a row. The handful of local businesses that call this area home are collectively known for large amounts of fun with a low price tag. That includes hot dogs at Dirty Frank’s, free arcade gaming at 16-Bit, the slider menu at Little Palace, and the entire menu at El Camino Inn.
