Lounges: although many consider lounges boring, they are very important to shidduch dating. This doesn't mean that you have to go to the same boring lounge over and over again. Here are a number of lounges from across the Tri-State area. I try to present the pros and cons of each lounge.
Things to do
"Things to do" includes a wide range of activities (basically everything besides lounges, parks, and restaurants). It includes places like Dave & Busters, malls, mini golf, etc...
Usually as you move on in your dates you will get past the lounges stage and get on to the doing fun stuff stage (eating can come before, after or during). So here some places that we suggest going to on a date.
There are 3 general types of restaurants: formal, casual, and cafe/dessert places. Formal restaurants are usually fancy and often expensive but not always. There are actually formal restaurants that are not especially fancy; it really has more to do with the service provided. But basically formal and casual come in two flavors: Meat and Dairy. The cafes/desserts are generally milchigs and often have a lighter menu, but are a good place to sit and shmooze and to have a drink and something to eat while you are doing that.
