The next Fab Five Friday

For this week's Fab Five Friday, I'm going to enlist the help of Sun dating columnist/blogger Maryann James.

The topic: Best places to go for drinks on a blind date.

Last week, some of you complained that my lists were too repetitive. Hogwash, I say. I've repeated two bars twice in two months. Still, I've retired the Brewer's Art and also promise not to include the Dog Pub for a long time to come.

Now you gotta hold up your end of this. Every week I ask for your suggestions. So if you want to see new names on my lists, you need to post your offerings. So let's hear 'em.

i dont have a specific suggestion, but you must be at a place where you can continue drinking/talking if the date is going well, or go to a movie/find a way to escape if the date isnt going well. so maybe a place thats near a movie theater?

thanks for no longer including the Dog Pub. It shouldn't be allowed back until it can come up with a suitable adjetive.
