BEST PLACE FOR A FIRST DATE - 2000
If there is such a thing as a failsafe venue for a first encounter, this has to be it. The brand-new building gives you a lovely excuse for initiating the date (You: "I've been dying to see the new Science Museum." Date: "Me too. Let's go this weekend, there's a new critter show opening.") The children's exhibits facilitate self-disclosure. (You: "I cried when I found out that the dinosaurs were never coming back." Date: "How sensitive!") The Omnitheater lets you make your move. (Date: "I loved the movie, but staring up at that screen gave me a stiff neck." You: "Here, let me massage it for you.") The state of Minnesota, 3M, and other corporate partners have provided you with a fascinating indoor playground. The rest is up to you.
