3. Eat the best damn Thai food in the city at Thai Dee
It might be next to a gas station, but Thai Dee rules. For a cheap, romantic meal it can’t be beat. Bring a bottle of wine (BYOB ALERT) and bond with your date over a sizzling plate of Angry Ocean -- a stir-fried seafood combination with lemongrass and hot peppers. It gets crowded on weekends, so make sure to show up at least 20 minutes early to get your name on the list.
4. Tie one on for under $10 at a Missions game
Sometimes intelligence and frugal spending is more impressive than charm and good looks. If you want to look like a damn genius, take your date to the Missions ballpark on a Thursday when beer, hot dogs, and soda can be purchased for $1 each. Just don’t look at the new Ballapeño -- he’s weird.
