Dating 101: March 21-27
Save to Collections
Merriam-Webster defines "date" as "the tall palm with pinnate leaves that yields the date", but that's not the kind of date we're talking about. Also, isn't it dictionary treason to put the word you're defining in the definition? We're not impressed, Merriam-Webster. Anyways, here are some places to go on a date this week.
Hot tip: Wellcome Collection is open 'til 10pm on Thursdays. Another hot tip: if you rub your body against your boo's for long enough, you'll both combust. Don't quote us on that, though. Learn other neat voltaic facts at this electrifying exhibition at Wellcome. Hopefully, sparks will fly between you and your date.
Use your little legs to carry you right to this itty-bitty Hackney wine bar/restaurant, one of our faves in the city. Their creative, rich sharing plates are perfect date fodder, and those well-curated grapes are sure to induce some fuzzy feelings in your belly. Grab two seats by the window and 'accidentally' brush arms with your date as you reach over to grab some fennel and lemon burrata.
C. Macleod plays the kind of hazy, dreamy indie folk that will transport you back to a simpler time and place, when being in love meant sending your crush a panty-dropping "Heyyy" on MSN Messenger. Plus, it's cheap as chips (£6!) and at the very cosy Sebright Arms. It's not quite MSN-grade romance, but it's close.
You know what's sexy? Knowing how to cook. Get your hands dirty with your bae at carby connoisseurs Burro e Salvia's pasta masterclasses, where you'll learn the ancient seductive art of making fresh pasta. If you butter up your date like you butter your raviolis, things might get a little saucy later on.
If we had to choose an aesthetic we most identify with, it would be Art Deco. No one's really asking, and no one's likely to ask, but we thought we'd let you know. This Art Deco bar in Stokey is the perfect relic of that period, and boasts plenty of shadowy nooks to neck your date in. Alll-right.
