1. Dinner and a Movie at the Alamo Drafthouse

The Alamo Drafthouse

You can literally have dinner and a movie at this unique dine-in theater. You can use a single small table for your pair of seats, for a cozier experience. The menu is complete, from craft beers to full meals. If you've already grabbed dinner, order some of their famous chocolate-chip cookies for dessert. The best part is the movie selection: you won't just choose from the latest blockbusters, but from mega movie classics like Jaws.

It is okay to cheat ahead of time. Online dating sites like Match allow you to peruse their online dating profile to look for important details like their favorite movies.

2. Skydive at iFly—Indoors!

If you know your date is something of an adrenaline junkie, take her indoor skydiving at iFly. Never mind ice skating or giant water slides, there is nothing as heady as floating in a wind-tunnel with absolutely no contact with the earth. Make it your before-dinner stop, so it can be an appetizer and conversation-starter at the same time. It lasts about an hour, so there's no chance she'll feel like anything lacking.

3. Step Back In Time with the Old Monk

The Old Monk is not your normal nightlife bar. If your date is a history buff and head over heels in love with the old European lifestyles, this place is sure to grab her attention the moment she sees the name. The inside will be no disappointment: the heavy stone walls and dark wood furniture will transport her into the old-style pubs of Europe. The selection of beers from all over Europe, and the exceedingly delicious pub food, will surely get her attention.

4. Taste the Nightlife with Station 4

You can stay and dance on the wide party floor, all lasers and amazing DJs. When she's tired, give her the choices of hanging out on the patio, resting at the Rose Room Lounge, or picking up a drink at the Topaz Bar, or the Silver Bar, or the Granite Bar...she'll be in nightlife heaven.

5. Indulge in Science at The Perot
