Looking for Some Out-of-the-Ordinary Fun in Fort Collins

It’s an average night and you’re looking for something to do. Sure, you could crack open your chemistry book and give studying another go, but who wants to do that? There’s only so much studying you can do anyway, friends.

That’s why the team at Ram’s Crossing East, Lofts, & Townhomes, your source for student apartments near CSU, has a few suggestions. If you’re willing to try something new, you’ll find that Fort Collins is a city that has something to offer to pretty much everyone. No matter your hobbies, you can find something new to try.

So what are your options? We have you covered. Keep reading to learn more!

What to Do in Fort Collins Tonight

Try a New Comic

In this day and age, superheroes are often a topic of conversation. And how could they not be? The Academy recently nominated Black Panther for Best Picture, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse for Best Animated Picture, and Avengers: Infinity War for Best Visual Effects. Last year also saw the release of Deadpool 2, Ant Man and the Wasp, and Aquaman. 2019 will give us Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Shazam, Dark Phoenix, and plenty more. In other words, comic book movies aren’t going anywhere.

Although it can feel like comic overload to some, others can’t get enough. If you find yourself in the latter camp, why not read a new comic book or two? Whether you enjoy Thor, Daredevil, Captain America, Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, or less popular characters like Squirrel Girl or Hawkeye, there are plenty of comics to dive into. Add in the fact that there are indie comics as well, and no matter what your interests are, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye.

Our recommendation is to try Gryphon Games and Comics where they have everything from individual issues to collected volumes and everything in between.

Play New Board Games

Everyone loves a good board game. There’s really nothing like the thrill of beating your friends — or are they your enemies when you’re playing board games with each other? — in a challenge of wits. Okay, luck might play a part in it too.

Unfortunately, new board games are a bit on the spendy side. Needless to say, the average college student probably doesn’t have a spare $50 bill to drop on a new board game. Thankfully, there are a couple of options.

Want to have an adult beverage while trying out a new board game? Dungeons and Drafts is hard to beat, as we pointed out in part two of our blog series about things new residents of Fort Collins should definitely experience.

Perhaps you’re craving caffeine. If that’s the case, the Haunted Game Cafe is the place for you. Grab a latte or a mocha, find a game that looks interesting, and give it a try. It’s the best way to try out something new before you drop the big bucks to bring a game home for yourself.

Watch Some Live Music

Back in the day, if you wanted to see a good band, you had to make the trek down to Denver. That’s not a bad thing, of course, because the drive is pretty beautiful and there’s a lot to love about a trip a little further south. The downside, of course, is that you don’t necessarily want to drive that far on a school night. We can identify!

The good news is that Fort Collins is developing a bit of a reputation for being the place for touring bands who want to experience the best of Colorado. Sure, you probably won’t see bigger artists here (because they sell out venues like the Pepsi Center), but you can see some great musicians in a more intimate setting.

Venues like The Aggie, Surfside 7, Hodi’s Half Note, the Downtown Artery, and (the newly remodeled) Washington’s, among others, are attracting some really amazing bands lately. Be sure to head to their respective websites and look up their schedules, because there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll see a band you love coming through in the near future. Of course that’s all without mentioning how many great local bands are popping up in our neck of the woods, and they play in the area regularly.
