Fantastic First Date Pick of the Week (4.2.12)

Fantastic First Date Pick of the Week (4.2.12)

This weekend I had time to reconnect with an old friend. He invited me out for dinner and cocktails. Originally we were going to Bar One, however, we ended up at H. Harper Station on Memorial Drive. I walked in as I though, this is so going in the blog. I chose this spot as a fantastic first date pick for many reasons, but drinks are at the top of the list. I can not quite remember what I ordered, but everything was made from fresh herbs, fruits, and garnishes. I ordered something with strawberries and they were as fresh as the ones I remember picking in my grandmothers garden, The bartender was cool and we even got a fire show from the owner who was behind the bar bartending during our stay. When the food came out, I seriously wanted to take a picture, but I my phone didn’t have enough juice (by the way, I’m not really the type to take food pics). So you’ll just have to take my word, or better yet plan your first date there. The lighting was just perfect, no loud music, no huge crowd, it was perfect. There is even a little courtyard type patio outside for you yo gaze at the moon and enjoy the spring breeze on a beautiful night. Great spot for a first kiss! Anyway, it’s located downtown at 904 Memorial Dr SE in Atlanta, GA. They are open from Tuesday through Saturday. Call for exact hours and enjoy your fantastic first date!  ...

Fantastic First Date: Pick of the Week (3.2.12)

I wanted to share this amazing spot with all of you. After deep consideration, I’ve decided to give up my favorite spot to share with all of my readers, followers, daters, and friends. I happened to stumble upon this location when I first moved to Atlanta in 2009. I was apartment hunting and by sheer serendipity, I found one of my favorite spots. Right along the Chattahoochee River, this Land of a Thousand Hills coffee shop is located on the premises of an apartment complex (Walton on the Chattahoochee) . It’s a perfect spot for a first date for A Thousand reasons, but my favorite is because of breathtaking view of the Chattahoochee River. There menu options are are phenomenal also, if you order a latte you’ll see what I mean. To add to that, there is a variety of space that can easily take any date from regular to romantic. For instance, you can enjoy sipping your coffee and nibbling your sandwiches while watching the river flow. Or you can bring a blanket and have an “impromptu” picnic while laying back on the lawn just below while enjoying the sun, and pointing out cloud figures together. The setting can be relaxed, intimate, romantic, or friendly… you’ll be able to make it into what fits your mood best. Whatever you decide, just make it a point to add this groovy spot to your “date spot lineup”. And when you do email me a quick thanks! Yes, I’m that confident you and your date will absolutely love it. Land of a Thousand Hills is located at: 6640 Akers Mill Rd. Atlanta, GA 30339     Happy...

The First Date// The Follow Up to the First Impression

Love is in the air and the woman you have been eyeing has agreed to go on a date with you. What will you do now? Don’t stress about planning your a date with her at all. Remember, good planning is essential to make your first date a success. Men, your lady wants you to be and plan a great romantic first date that she will remember for years. So, here are a few of my “can’t go wrong” tips. She’s already seen something in you that she likes, now is your time to show her what a gentleman you are. Special Planning The first date should not be lengthy. Keep aside 2-3 hours for it. You can plan activities that are sufficient for these few hours. A cup of coffee or a meal and then some fun activity will be enough to start a great relationship and memorable first date. Choose the venue thoughtfully. If you have coffee or a meal in mind, pick a place that is close to her residence. Do not make her travel or deal with traffic for hours to come and meet you. The place must be quiet where both of you can talk comfortably with plenty of lighting and sitting arrangements. You do not have to tax your wallet and go for a fancy restaurant. A nice restaurant that serves good food and drinks should be enough. If possible, pick a place you frequently go to so that you know the type of service they offer and food is on the menu. This way you can make a suggestion or order something...
