Since we all seem to enjoy walking down memory lane, I thought this might make an interesting thread. See if you can recall some of your best and worst dates as a teenager in Cincy.

Here are a couple for me:

Great date: I used to love taking a date to Mt. Adams and eating at a restaurant there (I don't remember the name, but it was located just as you entered the Mt. Adams area). Afterwards we would go to an ice cream shop called "A bird can fly but a fly can't bird (is it still there)? Once, after going to these two spots we went to see Peter, Paul and Mary, in the round, at the UC fieldhouse, I believe. (Of course, these kinds of dates were predicated on me winning enough money in poker on Friday night that I could afford to go out on the date on Saturday)

Now for the lousy "date": I was 14, and, after a week of building up my nerve, asked a girl to go with me (on my first date) to see "To Sir with Love" at the Albee theater, downtown. We had to take the bus, so I arranged to meet her at the bus stop. I got there about 15 minutes early. She finally showed up, with another girl. She saw me and asked me "What are you doing here?" I couldn't figure it out. I said I was going downtown to a movie. She said, "Oh that's funny. We are supposed to meet another girl here and go to the movies, too." It was then I realized that I hadn't identified myself when I had asked her for the date, and I was so young my voice hadn't changed yet. So she thought I was a girlfriend....Sheesh...Surprised I ever went out on a date after that one.

If you enjoyed these...Share your experiences, please

In the late 60's I double-dated to a Christmas party in Mt. Adams. Everything was going OK until my buddy got a little clumsy and knocked over the Christmas Tree. At this point, we pretty much got the impression that it would be a good idea to leave. I drove my 17 year old girl friend to her home in Forest Park and I was met by her father at the door - dressed in his T-shirt and smelling of Christmas Cheer. Evidently he was unaware that she was seeing anyone and he grabbed her arm, pulled her in, and made it pretty clear to me that the evening had concluded.

BTW, kind of on the same subject, I learned the hard way in the 90's that Schindler's List is not a real good "date flick".
