Cute, magical date ideas for two sad people? [happening tonight!]

I've been seeing this guy for a few weeks. It's super casual, but we've already become great friends, and are sure to stay close even when we're no longer dating. (We're 90% of what each other is looking for, but both have a few deal breakers, so we know this won't last forever). We're both exactly what each other needs right now, and the time we spend together is so fun!
He's currently going through a divorce, and has had a number of particularly heartbreaking arguments with his ex-wife this week. I've had a miserable week as well, for obviously unrelated reasons. We have a date tonight, and I'm looking for something magical and fun to do! Something cheap, not location-dependent, and easy to plan.
I had the idea of making those glow-in-the-dark bubbles, because it sounded like a super awesome fun idea, but it turns out they don't really work. I'm looking for an alternative. More along the lines of finger painting in the park, or pretending to be different characters while shopping in a store, and less along the lines of bowling or bumper cars or DIY pottery. Silly, cute, cheap and stress-releasing are the key! Can include sexy elements.
About us, I'm late 20's, he's early 30's, in Montreal, the weather is beautiful today, he doesn't like getting too dirty (picnic in an abandoned building is out), we're both incredibly into politics and travel and different cultures.
Any ideas (whether used tonight or in the future) are super appreciated! Thanks mifites!
