Back to Basics

During our vapid high-school years, going on a date meant dining on cheap, greasy food and making out in the darkness of a movie theater. You can’t deny how fun that still sounds, so head over to Foggy Bottom for a DC version of this classic American date.

Burger Tap & Shake grinds beef chuck and brisket in-house everyday to serve juicy burgers at a great price.Create your own house burger ($6) with fancy toppings ($1 each), or try one of the signature creations ($8) – the Southern Comfort has a fried green tomato on it…need I say more?

Also, the alcohol-spiked milkshakes ($8) are not to be missed and could be shared for a touch of romance.

Walk a few blocks North to West End Cinema (tickets $11) to ponder the intricacies of an indie film. While the candy is plentiful, it competes with a fully-stocked bar; make sure you treat your date to both or else things might end up like this.

The whole night will only cost $20 per person, plus drinks, tax, and gratuity. Maybe you’ll get even luckier at Lovers’ Lane…if one even exists in DC.

Born with an appetite for the worldly, she grew up in her potty-mouthed grandma's soulful kitchen, asked for a bread-maker on her 11th birthday, has lived in Spain, and ate a whole spit-roasted guinea pig in Ecuador.She gets creative with her own cooking, too--like beer-battered shrimp tacos made with Natty Light and pancake mix. When she's not working as a consultant, or hunting for the best cheap eats, Lisha is tweeting her dining endeavors and leisurely whereabouts (or at home eating mac n' cheese, if we're being honest).
