Dining at a nice restaurant, grabbing drinks at a cool downtown bar, or catching the newest film release are all tried and true date ideas, but after a while they start coming off a bit blasé. You certainly won't blow your date's mind by suggesting any of them. If you want to keep your companion for the night fascinated rather than fatigued, you need to get slightly more creative. Click through for a slew of unique date ideas right here in Manhattan! (Let us know when you're ready to send over those thank you chocolates; we quite like L.A. Burdick or La Maison du Chocolat).
