That’s right. I said it: dinner and a movie is dead.
Okay, so maybe that’s a little extreme, but it is both boring and, here in New York City where movies cost $12, expensive.
I always believed that dinner and a movie carried too much formality in it. You’d have to sit through an entire dinner of boring job-interview questions while struggling to make jokes and understand your date’s sense of humor. And what if the dinner goes terribly? Do you still watch the movie? You can’t really cut and run, can you?
And then there’s the movie. What genre do you watch? Do you put your arm around her? What if she doesn’t want your arm around her?
So instead, I always preferred something less nerve-wracking and way more fun, like meeting for a drink or two, or ice skating (although that’s plenty nerve wracking too) or plaster craft. (Yeah that’s right, plaster craft is awesome. And what?)
So we want to know, what do you think makes for a good first date idea here in Gotham? Do you still prefer good ‘ol Olive Garden & AMC, or do you switch your stuff up? Let us know in the comments!
