Beverage Trails And Sculpture Gardens: The Top Dates Posted Today On HowHookup Mobile

Since the launch of our mobile app on Thursday, there have been 5,000 new dates posted a day on Potentially, that’s 5,000 adventures, 5,000 first kisses, or 5,000 new beginnings. Every day.

In honor of the whole world of new possibilities our mobile app has opened up for the modern dater, we’re having a contest: Whoever posts the best date by Sunday using the app wins five hundred smackeroos (full details here). You can download the app for free here to get in on the action.

All this week, we’ll be collecting the best new date ideas from HowHookup users. Here are today’s top picks.

1. Catch A Live-Taping

"How Hookup... see the Daily Show Taping."

This is the first time we've seen a TV taping suggested, but it's such a cool date idea we're surprised no one's thought of it before. There's plenty of downtime/waiting around during which you can get to know your date, but you also get to share a cool/sometimes goofy experience.

2. Find A Beverage Trail

"How Hookup... hit the Hudson-Berkshire beverage trail."

A pilgrimage of artisanal cheeses and beers? Sounds like our kind of date.

3. Check Out Some Outdoor Art

"How Hookup... visit FriendWithYou's Rainbow City at the new section of The Highline"

Rainbow City=huge inflatable sculptures=amazing date idea.

4. Find A Beer Garden, And/Or Great View

"How Hookup... check out the new rooftop beer garden, La Birreria?"

Nothing says summer date like a relaxed evening of drinking outdoors.

5. Midnight In Your City

"How Hookup... watch "Midnight In Paris", and then create our own Midnight In New York."

Walking around any city after watching this movie would be romantic.

6. For Mischievous Bookworms

"How Hookup... leave silly notes in the middle of books in different bookstores."

Great way to be silly and talk about your favorite books.
