Move over Dinner With Lara Flynn Boyle, because Oby Lee is now the cheapest date around. A wine & java cafe that's casually outfitted with leather seats and umbrella-shaded patio seating, Oby'll ensure your wallet doesn't end up as lean as the aforementioned actress with ultra-cheap wines that you pour yourself from their 16-tap machine, meaning no waiters to tip
