Hot. Air. Balloons. Do not do hot air balloon rides on a first date. No where to go if things aren’t great, its expensive, and honestly it’s really too romantic. Take my advice… even if it’s a groupon… don’t do it.

An execution.

Not even joking. I took a girl out to dinner and she wanted to check out the protest at San Quentin that night for the execution of Tookie Williams (the founder of the Crips). So I went with her. Not exactly a ripsnorter of a time.

Harlem Globetrotters game for Valentine’s Day. Then girlfriend (now wife) thought I was kidding when I told her. After about 5 times of asking I should have got the hint, ignored the tickets in my pocket and drove straight to the nicest restaurant.

I took a girl to a cemetery on a second date. She told me that if I had taken her there on a first date she wouldn’t have given me a second. In all fairness to me it was winter and a beautiful place to hike in our city. The place is huge with really cool old monuments. I thought it was a nice place to walk around and have some coffee.
