Dating in Memphis is done on Thursdays. For some reason people celebrate Thursday nights like it’s 1999, for whatever reason. At any rate I join in on the festivities and advise you to do the same.
Volunteer for the film festival and meet new people -legions of ladies volunteer -and floods of people attend the internationally-acclaimed event. It’s a “do not miss.” Plan your time wisely as the Mill Valley Film Festival dates conflict with Litquake.
Online dating has been a little slow. Three days away and not even a wink to show for my (lack of) efforts. Do the men online somehow know that my life is in a state of upheaval?

But seriously, the situation was that terrible.
Another mainstream shoe that Frye has created is the riding boot. Frye riding boots are sturdy enough to take on horseback and fashionable for a classic prepster to wear on a lunch date. Frye riding boots add refinement to a casual wardrobe and, if need be, are as tough as nails.
Venues include San Francisco’s Make Out Room, Z space, the Beat Museum, Tosca, Book Passages and Booksmith – and a galaxy of other unusual and eclectic sites.

So our focus today is the best place in the Bay Area to have an outdoor beverage on a nice spring day. In fact, I’ll do you four better and provide the top five. Keep in mind that this is my top five and isn’t backed by any sort of analysis other than I like to go to these places. If you have a better top five, feel free to share it in the comments.
Try a bike ride around Scottsdale Greenbelt/Tempe town lake loop. Stop off for a wee picnic, spread your blanket, play some frisbee, impress your date with your hipness by breaking out a bottle of Bulgarian wine and let the mood spring forth in the city’s natural beauty. Be sure to time it so you pop the cork just before the legendary Arizona sunset.
