Good music makes me swoon almost as much as good food. If you’re taking out a date that’s anything like me (or me), the 14th Street Corridor’s got you, with several music venues like this one:

For a wonderfully unpretentious dinner for two, head to Cork Wine Bar for shared plates and paired wines. Simple yet refined, the atmosphere at Cork is intimate enough for a “Lady in the Tramp” moment but still casual enough where you might be judged for said behavior.  Get the popular avocado “bruschetta” and braised pork belly.

Once you’ve savored a few glasses of Old World wine, continue the party three blocks north, with live jazz and no cover charge at Jojo Restaurant & Bar. While a live band slaps the bass every Tuesday-Saturday, catch the Casaba Trio on Fridays to enjoy Latin and Brazilian melodies.  Sip on their house Big Bowl Margarita ($10) and groove the rest of your date night away.

Unless you and your date are alcoholics, this suave itinerary will only set you back $42 for two, plus tax and gratuity.
