The Simple Unconventional Conventional

It’s a regular thing, going to dinner and a follow-up of some kind. But what dinner and what follow-up you end up going to ends up saying a lot about you and your ability to not be a boring twat. You wouldn’t take a date to Buffalo Wild Wings (or maybe you would because you’re THAT ironic) because it just doesn’t say very much about you — other than you like wings and sports. Join the club — everyone does who eats meat.

Neither would you take a date to see Alien vs. Predator (continuing off of the theme of the post below). Not only is this because the movie sucked, but also because you might as well watch it on HBO at home without a date because if you thought of that idea, that’s likely where you are right now. Alright, it’s a cheap shot.

Anyway, here’s a suggestion for something that you might put together quick on a Monday night after work that’s basically free:

1. Get some grub at the Dumpling House – One dollar for five dumplings and they are, without a doubt the best dumplings in the city. They’re good, cheap and in an interesting neighborhood:

Dumpling House
118A Eldridge St

2. Regular Karaoke is for amatuers Hit up Arlene’s Grocery at 10pm on Monday nights for Rock & Roll Karaoke with a real live band (they’ve got a HUGE set list to pick from). You may be a terrible singer, but that never stopped Bob Dylan, Lou Reed or Sanjaya. The lesson to be learned here is to “rock your shit.”
