I hate to make promises by calendar just because if anything does happen, like somebody gets sick, or we're supposed to go to the park, but it's raining, whatever, it is 20 times worse! Because he remembers E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! So....to save my sanity, I'm simply going to say that "soon" we can do XYZ. Then I'm not absolutely committed to anything.
That's the thing I've sort of started doing that seems to help. I'll ask him afterward if this was fun, or point out something that it looked like he had fun doing,....and SO FAR he always has agreed with me And I point out that it turned out to be a good time even if it wasn't his first choice. I think a combo between that and stating that I'm just NOT going to allow continued complaining to ruin an otherwise fun outing for the rest of us is really helping.
