What are some good places for a first date?

Besides dinner of course?

For instance, one friend of mine suggested pool at a local pool hall, which I think would be nice.

Other things or places around the city that make good spots for a first date with someone? I'm open to almost any kind of suggestion so shoot away

Piedmont Park - you can walk, or bring a frisbee or bocce balls, and then head over to Park Tavern for a drink afterwards.

High Museum, the Carlos, or smaller galleries - look in creative loafing and find some openings listed at Youngblood or others

Live bands at Eddies Attic, the EARL, Variety Playhouse or wherever you can find something playing you like

A play at Horizon Theater or an event at the Fox

Darts, pool, shuffleboard at Twains or Gravity Pub or Leon's Full Service for bocce

Not the first date, but Oakland Cemetery is nice and historic

A sporting event - braves, hawks, thrashers....

Wine tasting at Eno, Murphys or any of the dozens of other places in town



What are you into???? What do you like to do? It's nice for the first date to be somewhat representative of the person's interests....

Friday night jazz at the high museum-get to listen to great music and stroll the galleries. Or you could go bowling.

Atlantic Station - dine (my reco is at Rosa Mexicana. Ice cream festival is going on.), movie at Regal Cinemas, games at Ten Pin Alley, shop, etc. etc. All in one place.

That way you dont have to plan too much in advance what to do!

Someone once told me they like to take first dates to Dante's at the Hatch. I've never been, but apparently the pirate atmosphere makes for hilarious conversation.

mmm--fondue, cheese, chocolate, jazz and the ship--Dante himself used to be around--the Atlanta Jimmy Buffett

lol--bring yer dubloons, Matey

the 2nd date--MacDonalds

I would be a cheaper date--almost any comedy club would be a good option--there is a tiny little theater in Suburban Plaza/N. Decatur/Scott Blvd area--it's near a Dollar Store, maybe Big Lotts
