Philadelphia Has History, And You Can Make Some Part III

I’m madly in love with Robert Langdon, but you don’t have to be. In fact, I don’t want the competition.  Here’s a date that will appeal to author Dan Brown fans, history buffs, and architecture addicts alike. The Grand Lodge of the Free and Accepted Masons of Pennsylvania is located in Philadelphia.  They don’t call this gorgeous structure grand without reason, but don’t take my word.  Take the tour.  Check out pagrandlodge.org.

Get Lucky

Put your stereotypes about bowling alleys into the gutter.  Lucky Strike is not your typical bowling alley.  You’d be more likely to see the characters from Across the Universe knocking down pins than the characters from King of the Hill.   Complete with lanes, billiards, bars, bottle service, and a menu, Lucky Strike is more of an upscale lounge where there’s more to do than just sit.  So get lucky…     bowlluckystrike.com

The Magical World of Love

If you haven’t been to The Piazza at Schmidt’s in Philadelphia, you need to stop what you are doing and go there.  Right now.  Home to galleries, unique shops, bars, and restaurants, what more could you want?

Alright, fine.  You also want some magic in your relationship just like everyone else.  Well, The Piazza at Schmidt’s has that, too.  Head to Trickzone.  No, it’s not like some kinky South Street shop.  Trickzone is home to magic tricks.  Be dazzled by the trade, buy some tricks of your own, or, perhaps, see about having a magic party on the premises.  They’re recommended for children’s birthdays, but asking never hurt, and creativity always gets a gold star when it comes to dating.

And Trickzone gets a gold star for the debating couple: “Is love truly magical or is it just an illusion?”  One stop here and you might even be able to magically figure out a way to get your date to stop talking and make out with you already.  Just maybe.   trickzonephilly.com

Philadelphia Has History and You Can Make Some. Part 2

Fashion designers will surely want to visit famous sewer Betsy Ross’ House before heading to Urban Outfitters for some shopping.  Sure, Urban Outfitters is international, but Philly is where it started. bestyrosshouse.org and urbanoutfitters.com

Look at the Chart!

The Chart House in Philadelphia is a premier dining experience along the Delaware River. Definitely classy, the Chart House is by far one of the most romantic restaurants in the City of Brotherly Love.  Choose from steak, seafood, chicken, and more, and don’t forget to have the chocolate lava cake for dessert.

A Lesson in Anatomy

Checking out body parts is an understated dating activity.  For the unconventional lovers, check out  the College of Physicians of Philadelphia’s Mutter Museum.  Explore human anatomy at its most unusual.  See preserved body parts, surgical instruments, and more.  It’s definitely a conversation piece, but it’s not for weak stomachs.

P.Y.T. (Hey, it ain’t Mickey D’s!)

A burger on a date?  For real?  Yes!  Hey, it ain’t Mickey D’s, but it’s not the Chart House either.  P.Y.T. is a fun place to go, relax, and chat.  It’s perfect for the fresh couple or the ones who’ve been dating for an eternity.  It may not scream ballroom gown and tux, but it definitely screams FUN, and the $10 Adult Milkshakes are all the rage.

Besides, this place is at The Piazza at Schmidt’s…  Be sure to check out the local art galleries and shops before you’re too full to stroll.

Singing and Dancing

This one place offers all four.  Philadelphia’s Tavern on Camac, primarily a gay and lesbian haunt, is a fun spot for all.  Spend dinner there, and then drink and sing in the piano bar before heading up to the club bar to get your dance on. tavernoncamac.com
