Eat mussels and drink beer at Monk's Cafe
For a delicious (yet cheap!) meal and a superb beer list, Monk’s is your spot. Located right in Center City, Monk’s is among the best beer bars in the nation. It gets pretty crowded at night, so if you have your heart set on the date there (and not some less crowded bar down the street), get there 20 minutes early and put your name in. If you can’t get a spot early, don’t worry: The full menu is served till 1am each night.
An improv show could end up in a variety of directions -- fun, nonsensical, or awkward -- just like your date! Snag two cheap tickets (usually $10), pick up some drinks (the theater is BYOB), and show your date that you enjoy fun like other normal humans, too. Be prepared for some amazing storytelling, quick wits, hilarious chaos, and a dash of audience participation with some of our city’s most unique comedy.
