During our vapid high-school years, going on a date meant dining on cheap, greasy food and making out in the darkness of a movie theater. You can’t deny how fun that still sounds, so head over to Foggy Bottom for a DC version of this classic American date. Burger Tap & Shake grinds beef chuck and brisket in-house everyday to serve juicy burgers at a great price.Create your own house burger ($6) with fancy toppings ($1 each), or try one of the signature creations ($8) – the Southern Comfort has a fried green tomato on it…need I say more?

Also, the alcohol-spiked milkshakes ($8) are not to be missed and could be shared for a touch of romance. Walk a few blocks North to West End Cinema (tickets $11) to ponder the intricacies of an indie film. While the candy is plentiful, it competes with a fully-stocked bar; make sure you treat your date to both or else things might end up like this.

The whole night will only cost $20 per person, plus drinks, tax, and gratuity. Maybe you’ll get even luckier at Lovers’ Lane…if one even exists in DC.
