Best Place for a First Date

Seattle Art Museum

For all its popularity, dinner-and-a-movie makes a terrible first date. The movie really messes things up, since you're stuck sitting in silence for two hours or more. Art—especially the incredible collection at the Seattle Art Museum—is the perfect alternative. Even if you (wisely) majored in something other than art history, endless conversation is to be had there. Whether you're cracking jokes about a phallic sculpture, showing off your sensitive side by weeping over some impressionist water lilies, or sheepishly confessing that you prefer Bob Ross to Basquiat, chances are good you'll get to know your date and make a strong first impression. And if things go really well, a room at the Four Seasons is waiting just across the street. KEEGAN HAMILTON 1300 First Ave., 654-3210,
