Best Place For A First Date

Rosie's

Imagine this: After months of circumstances not being quite right, you muster the guts to ask out that person you've had a crush on for ages. And Crush Object says yes! OMGOMG. Next quandary: Where to go on the crucial first date? You want it to be casual, so C.O. feels no pressure. You want beer to be available, you know, to get the conversation flowing. You want to be able to hear each other, but nothing too intimate. You want someplace that shows that you can have a good time.

Rosie's meets all of these requirements. Everyone's favorite neighborhood pub is the perfect place to get to know someone — and the vibe is laid-back enough to ensure that any first-date-jitter-fueled gaffes (spilling a beer, say?) will only add to the evening's charm. Share some popcorn, and challenge C.O. to a game of darts. Subtly show off your romantic victory when you inevitably run into friends (or invite them to join, if things aren't going so smoothly).

If C.O turns into S.O., you'll have a cozy, authentic-Portland "first date" story. If it doesn't go further than a perfunctory hug goodbye, at least you'll have enjoyed a fun night out on the town.
