Full_sffirstdates

Although you met her in a hazy buzz and your friend kept interrupting, you can’t stop thinking about the stone cold fox you met on New Year's Eve.

When you text her, you might suggest one of SF's Top 5 first dates. You know, for your first sober moments together.

5.
Audium
Show her your sophisticated side with the world's wildest theater — where music is "sculpted" around you through 169 all-encompassing speakers manipulated by movement, direction, speed, and intensity. A definite conversation starter.
Fri & Sat 8:30p. 1616 Bush St., Lower Pac Heights. $20.

4. Angel Island State Park
Take it outside with a ferry boat ride to Angel Island, where you can hike the peak for panoramic views and bike miles of scenic trails. Finish off your day with a Cowgirl Creamery cheese board and a glass of bubbly at the outdoor cafe — all just a brisk ferry ride away.
Angel Island State Park, Tiburon.


3. Urban Wine Tasting at Tank18
Impress her with your highbrow tasting notes and sip your way through wine country without ever leaving the city. Locally sourced and then barreled in SoMa, Tank18 serves up flights and pairings in a low-key, spacious atmosphere. Stop by every third Saturday with an empty wine bottle and fill 'er up for just $7.99.
Thu-Sun 3-10p. Tank18,1345 Howard St., SoMa.


2. Opaque
Dinner could be thrilling with a three-course meal in absolute darkness and guidance from the legally blind waitstaff. She'll know you're a risktaker when you bravely suggest the "mystery course" to truly put your taste buds to the test.
Wed-Sat 6p-midnight. 689 McAllister St., Western Addition. $99 prix fixe menu.

1.
Ice Skating Off the Grid
Why not take a spin together around the ice skating rink? You’re pretty good on skates and if she slips and falls you’ll be there to catch her. After you show off your Wayne Gretsky moves, chow down at the six revolving food trucks.
Sun 11a-3p. Justin Herman Plaza, The Embarcadero, $10 ice skating admission.
