I obviously did a lot better with girls that knew what they were getting into rather than blind dates with strangers.

...Which leads me to my point: how well do you know this person? If it really is a blind date, your best bet is to think up three different ideas, then go to dinner and pick the most appropriate one after you get a chance to talk. Live music, festivals, and classy sporting events are usually pretty safe bets. Movies are generic and boring, but expected.

Specific to Cincinnati, I would hit up a live music venue or a festival of some sort. Don't go to a Reds game when it is hot like this, or she will begin to associate your presence with being sweaty and uncomfortable.
Excellent post! From a woman's standpoint, I would not have admitted this to a guy, but in addition to disliking being uncomfortable in the heat, I also HATED the idea that on a date I was going to look rumpled and sweaty, with limp hair and running makeup from the heat and humidity. Yeah, I realize not all women feel this way, but best to rule out the possibility that she does before planning outside stuff.

And, when you go to leave, if they try to keep her there, you had a bad date.

OK, seriously, take her to the Cincinnati Art Museum. Its free. Tell you always wanted to see it. Then have lunch or dinner in Mt. Adams.

LOL thanks for all the feedback / back lash. We've been chatting on Fb or talking on the phone for over a month now so it's not a blind date. She's a West End girl so putt putt and miniature bowling sounds great to her. If I take her to Bass Pro Shops on the way home she may propose to me

We are planning on going to a museum next weekend, thanks for the info about the Art museum being free.

West End Girl, huh? Probably want to amend that to "West Side Girl." Although most would prefer a West End Girl I suppose:
