Title: Dating Spots Master Thread
Post by: YudiG on November 29, 2011, 05:51:07 PM
Title says it all....let the ideas flow and best of luck to all those on DDF who are in the 'Parsha'. May you find the right one soon!

I'll start with a few ideas:

LA - The Putting Edge near LAX, Santa Monica Pier

NYC- Common Ground NYC in Manhattan (Google it)

Detroit - Greenfield Village, Dave & Busters, Coach Insignia (Upscale Lounge 72nd floor in GM HQ's), Townsend Hotel, Lathrup Village Park (empty and off the beaten track)

Queens

Queens Archery Supplies
170-20 39th Ave
Flushing, NY 11358
718-461-1756

Lots of fun. Be sure to call and ask for their times for open shooting. They have Tournaments and other things that come up during the week.

If I may suggest: after you're at Archery, go for dinner at Hapisga Steakhouse nearby:

147-25 Union Turnpike 
Flushing, NY 11367
(718) 380-4449

Here too I highly suggest making an RSVP. Great food for great prices!

Not sure why you seem to believe: if I asked = I would have written I asked. As I have said elsewhere, the fact that my LOR (or yours for that matter) says I (or you) do or do not have to do something has/should have very little influence on actual practice

And newsflash: me not acting in accordance with your standards and/or conforming to your expectations, does not a non-mentsch make.

I'm not going to give you an elementary course on syllogisms, but (me asking = I would have written I asked) is exactly what you said.

Additionally, me thinking a certain opinion is somewhat non-sensical does not mean I am demeaning it. Check yo sensitivities.

I'm not sure what in there has you believing that I'm not chilled, but if its the fact that a) I'm responding to being called, essentially, the opposite of a mentch for not alerting another poster that I had consulted my LOR before posting, or b) that I find a certain opinion somewhat non-sensical, I'm gonna have to say, I am as chilled as a cucumber 8) and

this is a forum

For a great lounge in NYC try the Lobby Lounge in the Manderin Oriental Hotel on the Upper West Side.  Great atmosphere, great view (overlooks Columbus Circle). Make a reservation to be safe.  And while you're in the area, walk around the shops at Columbus circle. Really nice, especially around the holidays.  And finally (this was one of my best dates) go to the jazz club (Jazz at Lincoln Center I think). Very upscale, and really cool experience.

Went on a few dates there, it's beautiful but tricky to get a reservation or a seat in the lounge though, usually they shuffle you off to the bar right next door.

I dated for a while and dated many girls. This was my usual 1st date hot spot. I would usually call beforehand and be sure the lounge and bar were both open. The lounge is best choice. The bar has music which can be quite loud at times.

Most people I had spoken to at the time had never heard of it. Only once did I meet another date there. That's about it... aside from the date where my friend and I scheduled to be there at the same time.. his date actually knew who I was via her brother! Once I had someone flirt with my date right in front of me in the elevator.

Parking was never a problem, always found something on the street on or around that block. Worst case scenario, you can walk in the adjoining mall and grab a drink and just sit and watch the people walk by.

Guilty on both counts. I remember the old Tea Lounge (on 7th) before the frummies discovered it and before it was all commercialized (this goes back like 8+ years now), I used to go all the time.

These places are all legitimate and depending on how they are done they can be either typical and boring or fun and interesting.

The point of this thread is for the truly creative ideas. Anyone who has a really wacky, far-out, original, etc. idea for places to go on a date please post.

Thoughts on minimum temperature to go? Can one go on a winter evening if it's say 30's or low 40's (like tomorrow night)?

Edit: Never mind. Not running in evening this time of year.

i have friends that told me that the best dates that they went on were archery

I had a lot of fun and so did most people I know who went.

Archery is difficult for girls because the Bow tends to be quite heavy.

Our favorite activity on dates was going to lounges and making other couples on dates feel awkward

What are some alternatives to New Roc City type place? I heard it isn't that great (don't remember details but definitely heard complaints about noisiness) but the concept is good. (i.e. a place with arcades, pool, air hockey, bowling, stores, things to look at, possibly kosher food nearby - a place with variety).

p.s. Feel free to correct me if you think New Roc City is worth checking out.

I like new roc city a lot better than d&b, 1st of all because there's more to do besides arcades (pool bowling go karts etc) 2nd d&b is always loud even if it's completely empty that's just the way the place is. 3rd I have been turned away from d&b bec the girl wasn't 21 (unless u go to long Island but that's a far drive)

Tea Lounge in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY.

Live music, yuppie/hipster watching, comfy couches and pillows, great place to play a game and chill. Ask your LOR, but tea in a paper or glass cup should be fine. They also sell soft drinks, beer etc.

from the people or the cafe?  ;) It was fairly empty, but they have music playing (when I was there, at some point they had Mattisyahu playing).... and of course it a rain forest... so you have animals moving and making noise, while the rain falls... etc.

Wouldn't suggest for a first date (many times not a second either...) but worked well for a 3rd...

We walked through the mall first... then went there...

Can anyone recommend a nice restaurant that doesn't seat you on the lap of the neighboring table?

I don't go out to fancy restaurants much (read: pretty much ever) and looking at the photos of some manhattan restaurants it looks like they encourage group discussions.

I am open to Dairy/Meat suggestions - Teaneck/Manhattan area - Nice ambiance.

Just off the top off my head when I at Abigale's I had a lot of room. I guess look at pics on their website to confirm. But you are right that many seat you on top of each other.

I think he means even within like a foot. CMIIW.  It is the norm in restaurants to sit near each other, I suppose someone that never goes out might find this disturbing even though most are used to it.

Also you can try and reserve Le Merais upstairs seating I think has more room.

In the end I came to the realization that I had to stop dating LA/NY girls as they would never be satisfied unless they lived in LA/NY.  Marry a girl from somewhere else though, esp the midwest as I did, and they'll be perfectly happy wherever they wind up.

It's totally a public place and it's not actually dark. It's quite lit up, just it's blacklit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_light), causing everything of bright/flourescent color to 'glow'. It's an activity for all ages and you'll probably encounter them too

Halachikaly it's probably fine, though depending on the couple some people might be uncomfortable with such a place.

1. I know many law libraries for sure are open to the public even if they claim their not. Because they house federal archives which is by law open to the public therefore so is the library. 2. Most big college libraries I've been in have lounge areas where people talk. FTR I've never been in New Haven. Just a guess of a good place.

PUTPAC. I'd like to know what the law library says when you bring up that they store public federal records and as a citizen they are denying your rights.

You will bump into security guards at the door who won't have a clue of what you are talking about. Sometimes if you show them the Federal depository sign they may say well let ask someone. It's a true YMMV.

City: Lots to do near there, even walking around there is cool.
Long island: You dont have to be 21 to get in (even though they rarely check in the city), Plenty of parking, will probably be less busy.

Ambiance?
Depends which section. The most conducive for a (frum) date is the Library Bar. It's located to the back left of where you come in. It's comfy, has interesting artwork, a pooltable. If it's noisy there should be seating in the hallway just outside. From their website it seems they've added/updated lounge areas that weren't there when I was. Personally, I recommend checking it out before coming with the girl. Either way, the Library Bar should be nice.
https://www.morganshotelgroup.com/hudson/hudson-new-york/eat-drink/library-bar
Parking?
Way back when, I was able to find parking on the street after 6 or 7 (don't remember, prob.7) within a block or two. There's a good chance that has changed.

JFK is not in brooklyn.

Also, the time is the same--you're spending 3-4 hours on the date. What diff does it make how much of that is in the car?
And the cost difference is not high. There are plenty of nice places in manhattan where the seltzer is cheap.

tolls + parking less traffic and there's a minimum on the time you have to be in the lounge so that just makes the date so much longer
Title: Re: Dating Spots Master Thread
Post by: henche on December 09, 2013, 04:01:18 PM
Brooklyn bridge=no tolls.
Street parking in the right neighborhoods=no parking.

And an hour and a half in the lounge is plenty enough.

Samkey, you haven't been dating long enough to sound so jaded.

FYI, there are original ways to not spend so much time and money and still manage to look like you put thought and effort into making it a pleasant experience. Remember, dating is mostly focused on tachlis, but there's also courting involved. Otherwise you can just sit in.

How do those statements coexist?

Drive time doesn't (usually) count towards expected/accepted date time. So if you're going to need to be in the lounge (or wherever) for an hour and a half, shorter driving time means shorter date.

Ooops, maybe that's why it took me so long to get married. I always counted from pick-up to drop-off.

Still, I'm glad, because I like my wife much much better than the others.

Post by: Armadillo on December 09, 2013, 05:48:15 PM
Which reminds me of the time I went out with a girl who so horrified me (in hashkafa), that when I realized at the beginning of the date that I got off at the wrong exit onto another highway, with no exit for 30 miles and there was no way I was going to spend all that extra time with her, I decided to take a uturn in one of the police crossovers. The first was occupied (by a cop), so I kept driving to the next one, ripped a u-ee and headed to our destination. And still had to entertain her for the requisite time before taking her home.

Title: Re: Dating Spots Master Thread
Post by: Armadillo on December 09, 2013, 05:51:34 PM
Ooops, maybe that's why it took me so long to get married.
Knowing the tricks of the trade didn't quite shorten my dating experience. It did help me find my wife though. I got passed around from one girl to her friend to another (with a few others in between) and so on ending in my wife
Title: Re: Dating Spots Master Thread
Post by: Armadillo on December 09, 2013, 06:01:47 PM
What is your "requisite time"
First date: 1.5 - 2 hours at the location, 2.5 - 3 hours total. This is a lechatchila minimum. Extenuating circumstances may vary. It shouldn't be much longer either - first dates are mostly to see if you want a second one. FME, girls appreciate first dates on the shorter side.

where did you get the notion that time in the car doesn't count?
Much experience. Talking to people. Mostly just experience. Many many dates with many many girls.

It's also a s'vara. You're going out on a date. If you get stuck in traffic, you're not going to turn around when you get there just because you were together already for two hours.

Some yes, some no. I think I once went to one where they said if I'm over 21 ( or maybe 25?) I can bring her in

I went to the one in Times Square and they let her in but told her to stay away from the bar.
I think in one of the Long Island locations before a certain time at night you don't have to be 21.

There's a place in Manhattan where you can paint with acrylics and take it home immediately. Just have to make sure to ask for that type of paint.

Place is called make meaning.

Fair point. Well, no one was home except for my father in a different room (I arranged it to be like that) and it was just the first 45 minutes of a normal more conventional date. It came about because she had heard that I make a mean cholent and really wanted to see it being made. So it really was more of a "date-activity" and not so much a family meeting/chill. But yeah, looking back, it's kind of crazy...  :)

I never got that argument. If you're still dating the girl when it's ready, great, make a pit stop on another date to pick them up. If not, who cares, you didn't spend the money because you were desperate for a beautiful piece of painted pottery, you did it for the activity of it.

I did this on my 5th date with my wife, and it saved me big time. She had told the shadchan after date #4 (New Roc City - she did not enjoy that) that she didn't think it was going anywhere. But good old pottery painting turned it around for me :D. (Obviously it wasn't the activity itself, but it created the environment necessary to progress I suppose).

I can't say painting pottery was a great date, but I guess it was revealing. One girl was quiet as a churchmouse and after being convinced to go out again, I took her pottery painting. This time rather than trying to pull teeth, I had something to keep busy with in the awkward (for me) silence. It was kind of surreal.
The best part is, when I picked up the pieces (there was no next date), I gave the little car change bank with her name on the license plate to my sister in law as a present! :D

I generally do not recommend glow in the dark for dates. People and makeup look very different in the glow.
lol...especially if it's warm in there.
sweat stains are not attractive
But I thought finding a wife that you will spend an eternity with and raise a family together is about more than looks.

You guys are so shallow.

Union Square/Flatiron district. I found. groupon-type site that gave me 2/15 though I'm not sure what one would have been like there definitely wasn't anything "for two"about it. It was not childish at all and lots of fun to work together finding things but I guess it depends on the girl

I had a great time doing the one in the Village - but I wouldn't recommend it, as it takes you through some of the seedier areas of Greenwich Village, and can be kinda awkward ("Ok, I'll just keep my head down for the next little bit, tell me when I can look up again...") :)

They use the honor system to let them know how many players. Cheating it is not exactly the reputation I would want to convey on a date.

I don't consider it dishonest to play with two people on one device and only pay one fee. It is like if your cable company said that you have to pay per watcher on your TV and it is the "honor system". My honor doesn't include them having an insane pricing structure which makes no sense and charges for no additional service.

First off, no cable company says that. Second, why would it be different than paying for 1 subway ticket and having 2 people go through? Why should they care if an extra person comes on? The train doesn't have to work any harder.

 one or two tag alongs don't change the dynamic of the tour if they are quiet. But trying to find an exact parallel situation is a distraction from the original discussion. If it is in their terms, it might be stealing.

It's something like $16 per person. Includes gun rental and 25 shots (also per person). They expect a tip of a few bucks.

I don't know their current policy, but as of a year or so ago, they won't charge you the $25 minimum if you sit at the bar (not ideal) or if you take your drinks outside, where they have a really nice place to sit on a deck on the water (very ideal if the weather's good).

Someone should make a list if which lounges have the best drinks, seats and view in JFK, or LGA lol!.. Although this would probably only make sense for a domestic terminal right?
You wouldn't stamp your passport for a date would you?
Anyway I guess you could go to the delta lounge? nice spacious place, but if I recall correctly.. Only 2 free types of beer ...
So... Which lounges are nice?
can you get there without a boarding pass?

As far as pricey goes, yea dates aren't cheap. I rent every time here in lakewood too. Not a reason to compromise a certain class to save a few bucks..
Israeli dating protocol is different than American though, but that's for Israelis. If I would date in Israel I would rent a car.

I've done stray boots on 5th avenue and Tribeca in NYC... They were both good.  We used a blackberry but through text message it worked fine.  Make sure to bring water/snacks since you are walking around the city for a couple of hours.  If the weather is good it can be a lot of fun while seeing some cool sites in the city you might never see or may never know much about.  One heads up - there can be a challenge to take a picture by some artifact so be ready with your answer on what you want to do with your date!

They were both good.  We used a blackberry but through text message it worked fine.  Make sure to bring water/snacks since you are walking around the city for a couple of hours.  If the weather is good it can be a lot of fun while seeing some cool sites in the city you might never see or may never know much about.  One heads up - there can be a challenge to take a picture by some artifact so be ready with your answer on what you want to do with your date!
meh you can just take a picture of anything or skip it

daytime does not help in a very secluded area which parts of these parks can be. Guaranteed there are couples which take advantage of some of the secluded areas in these parks

yup - I did atop the eiffel tower.. did it on the hour in the evening as the tower lit up, got down on one knee.. flew in that morning from london flew out that evening back...
Had a great day going around paris and the proposal was the grand finale..
We had a few cocktails in the very nice AF lounge on the way back... and at customs as we got back to london, the customs guy asked why I went for so short, and when I told him he said "I've been married 42 years and proposing on the eiffel tower still sounds like a great idea!"... lol...

Anyone every been to the A loft hotel in Brooklyn?

Went there twice. Once we went to the back and sat there. More modern than the Brooklyn Marriott but nothing great. The second time they told us there's a rooftop club two doors down (pretty sure it's called Brooklyn Terrace). We decided to check it out. There wasn't a soul there and it was a pretty cool place. You're able to go outdoors but since it was winter time we just sat inside.

Definitely depends on the personality of the other party, as well as what point in the process you went to the place.

Once you brought it up: My Rabbi holds (and yes he's got a Chasidish background) that we do not automatically assume that all goyim are prutzim and unless you assess him to be a parutz there is no issue with yichud. This would be Matir taking a flying lesson if the pilot meets the criteria.

I've never done the one the op mentioned, but the one I went to had 2 doors. One which was locked that you had to open with the clues, and the other was always unlocked. They need it for safety reasons, fire escape etc. The employees would randomly pop their head in to see how you're doing.

Just try to let natural conversation flow. If you're going to play games, play a real one. I once went on a date where we went to a place that had real  board games you can play. ( since closed). It led to casual conversation. ps - we got married  ;). Personally I think dating has become too much about "games". Life is natural - let conversation flow. Difficult converstions are part of life and how people bring up or respond to difficult topics is all part of who the person is. I think the game is interspersed with serious and fun questions.Make that part of your natural conversation.

We're obviously not talking about using it on the 1st or 2nd date, not even the 3rd even. More on a 4th or later, depends on how quick it's going. Yeah, the first couple of dates you just let conversation flow.

Traffic on Route 9 and on Squankum Rd will be heavy as all the new daters will be leaving for their first dates. The Lounge at the Brooklyn Marriott is expecting an over flow crowd. Chelsea Piers has 2 bouncers at the door reminding these new young 1st timers that unless its their 3rd date they should not be there. It doesn’t Pas.

REMINDER to all new daters. Take your keys, take your ez-pass, fill the car up with gas, only take your hat off after you have opened the door for your date, she is in the car and you both have your seat belts fastened.

If the anticipated traffic is heavy call the Shadchan to inform the girls family you are running late, make sure she is home by 11:30, walk her to the door, and most important of all…..don’t text all your friends about your date while your driving back to Lakewood. Wait till you are back in the dorm.

Keep in mind that while you are sure every girl is waiting for you to come out of the freezer and since you are such a great catch these poor girls are just plotzing to date you and they should feel honored that after the long list of names you chose them to be your first date…..still….if you get engaged within a week it will start rumors that you must have not waited till the freezer door opened and then the Shidduch may not be Chal:)

This is the first thread I ever saw on DDF and there was under "fun date" a option of going to night court. I went. with a girl. it was a disaster. We were looked at by the gaurds and staff as weirdos because we were dressed for a play and we are view these young black men getting sentenced as entertainment! we could not hear anything and we were the only visitors. I am glad the option was removed because it is not recommended but it was certainly fun but only in hindsight.

We said yes and they brought the most amazingly fresh and warm Italian style bread With butter. absolutely out of this world. I kept on asking for more of it .  Soup was great , so was appetizers.  stir fry was decent but the fish really took the cake.

Something it may look really nice online and turn out to be pretty gross and seedy once you get there.

Went there last night. Perfect place, its not the fanciest place, however for a 2nd-4th date I think its fine. There is plenty of Pool Tables, 4 Ping-Pong tables in enclosed cages, 2 Air Hockey Tables and a couple of Arcade and Driving Games. There is no Bar, but there is a vending machine. (They let you bring drinks in, but not food) The Pool Tables were $12/hr and Air Hockey was $1 per game. Ping Pong is $10/hr. Parking was hard.
There is a movie theater the next block over, and the owner told me that on nights when there is a new/good movie on, the place will fill up after the showings. So call that day - the owner will know which movies playing and if it popular.

Hall of Fame Billiards

Pool Hall · Brooklyn

Address: 505 Ovington Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209
Phone:(718) 921-2694

Not really a club, more like an upper class bar.

The game tables are all downstairs completely separate from the bar.
 
Best time to go (which is also the only time I've been there) is around opening which is about 4pm, was very quiet then.

Prob the best place to post this.
 sorry if it's been posted elsewhere

To all guys in shidduchim: here are some guidelines to follow if you want that first date to have a chance of leading to a second one:

1) Don't talk about your hashkafos on the first date. Its kinda creepy and TMI.
2)Three hours. That's the max. You want to end off with the girl looking forward to another date, not dreading it.
3) When the girl is talking, LOOK HER IN THE FACE AND LISTEN TO WHAT SHES SAYING!
4) Don't keep steering the conversation back to yourself. If she tells you a story, ask her a question about it instead of just using her story as an excuse to talk about yourself. Listen to HEAR, not just to reply.
5) DONT SING ALONG WITH THE MUSIC IN THE LOUNGE
6) Don't get angry at the guys in the parking garage no matter how stupid they are.
7) Don't keep looking at your phone when you're driving, if you need gps, get a holder for your phone.
8) If the little beepy thing keeps going off in your car, you're probably driving like a maniac. Slow the heck down. Dont show off at the wheel. We want to get home alive.
9) Don't discuss which tv shows you watch on the 1st date. I barely know you.
10) it's ok to be good at things, but you're good at EVERYTHING? I find that hard to believe.

In short, try to have a good time while trying to give me one as well. Use common sense, and try to be polite and normal.

Sincerely,
A Girl In Shidduchim

To The Girls In Shidduchim A Couple Of Tips For You:

1)Tell your parents max 3 minutes on 1st date, I'm not your son in law yet I'm a total stranger
2)If you have a driveway please leave it open we aren't interested in circling for 15 min
3)Try not to agree with everything we say this is the 21st century girls are allowed 2 have their own opinion
4)If you can't walk in heels don't wear them!
5)Darken up on the makeup...you can enhance your facial featuresdon't hide them
6) Try to wear some color this is a date not a funeral
7) If we go out for food your allowed to eat it's kinda weird when your just watching us eat (and it's free take advantage )
8)If there's a lull in conversation you're allowed to help out it's not just the guys job to carry the conversation
9)If we're quiet in the car it's because it's hard 2 carry conversation and drive ( not because we're not interested in you)
10)Yes, guys are good at everything. Just Kidding lol...

At the end of the day we aren't against you...we're trying 2 get married 2 so hatzlacha in everything in life and we should all find our zivug soon. Amen.
Sincerely,
The Guys In Shidduchim

My sister was just in the Leonardo Jerusalem.  She was posting clips that were so funny. there were atleast 15 dates there in one night! At one point there was a date that didnt have where to sit because all tables were occupied by dates. Also there were 2 men standing together waiting for their prospective dates. Another one you can see a girl and her father and then the boy goes over and the father leaves. It was like a date factory. So i would day that the Leonardo is definitely not a good dating spot :-)

I find this absolutely brilliant. Assuming the girl want totally flip out it would seem to be the perfect balance of a mild distraction so that it won't be too quiet but just enough to have a nice conversation. Just thought I share for all those that need something to do.

I don't date anymore, but I was recently in a park (with my wife and kids) and I saw something I never saw before. There was a couple on a date, standard Lakewood look, but they were going fishing. I find this absolutely brilliant. Assuming the girl want totally flip out it would seem to be the perfect balance of a mild distraction so that it won't be too quiet but just enough to have a nice conversation. Just thought I share for all those that need something to do.

That's pretty unique. Once went to a shooting range with a friend, saw a pretty yeshivish looking guy on a date there... My friend says to him, "interesting dating spot, then again if you don't like her you can always shoot her"...

In the city for dairy you can do cafe k or noi due

Meat in Brooklyn bison and bourbon is nice

In the city Abigaels or Le marais are nice mid level options

Le marais is in a nicer area if you want to go walking around after.

2) Unlikely to be turned away because of lack of space or because we are not hotel guests.
3) (Relatively) Easy to find street parking or cheap parking nearby.
4) Near the West Side/ Central Park Area.

1) Will I typical bump into other frummies there?
2) how's the noise level there?

Mandarin oriental, there's usually space in the lounge on the rare chance there isn't the hotel is connected to a shopping center you could walk around/sit there.

I'm pretty sure the one by Chelsea piers is indoors but basing this off the bowling there it can be a little expensive (on the other hand it's easy to find parking on the street there at night)
