10 Best Places in L.A. For a First Date
by Whitney Friedlander

Coffee dates are the worn-in blue jeans of the dating world: about as unoriginal as a third date at a sushi bar, but still used as the comfortable, familiar fallback of choice for an outing you've been on more times you care to admit. You (and the person you're meeting) can do better. Los Angeles has other, sometimes just-as-affordable locales to get to know a potential new paramour.

3. ASSSSCAT at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
Granted, a night of improv comedy isn't everyone's idea of a barrel of laughs. But if you and your date are the type of people who enjoy watching professional and up-and-coming comedic actors get themselves in awkward situations for the amusement of others, then this event at UCB Theatre is worth the wait in line. Afterward, head to nearby Birds Café and Bar for a post-show debriefing over pints and chicken wings.
