I was working late one night downtown and decided to take a cab home rather than the Metro. Cab driver: “Because I didn’t give it to my bitch the night before.

Your date will usually include some kind of outdoor activity in his/her list of hobbies, since they spend their weekend going on casual hikes, walks, runs, or more adventuresome activities. It’ll give you something fun to do as your relationship develops … If you don’t like people who drink, this isn’t your city. So if you spend the night, be ready for her to ask you to brunch tomorrow, where you’ll most likely go to Open City, Ted’s Bulletin, Founding Farmers, or one of those other massively popular spots with long lines and slow service. brunches have bottomless mimosas, a gluten-free menu, and cheekily named entrees that play on the names of past presidents, so get ready for a little bit of sass with your Sunday morning meal. They are more inclined to talk about where they studied abroad their junior year of college than the latest movie they saw.
