There’s the pickup. The dinner. The good night (or what have you).
And while this most basic of formulas may have served you well in the past, it’s time to consider some next-level thinking in that dinner department.
Like going to a farm and picking it out of the ground yourselves.
Which brings us to the aptly named Pick Your Own, a website/date-night innovation resource that lists all of the self-pick farms and farmers’ markets in and around the city, online now.
Three words: always be closing. Three more words: Glengarry Glen Ross is a really good movie to quote in order to convey the fact that you should never let your dating game go stale.
Basically, this is a website that shows you where you can go to pick your own fruits and vegetables (yes, out of the actual ground). So in lieu of that dinner reservation, you’ll hop online and sort through an endless list of strawberry fields, blueberry farms, mustard green patches and grapevine rows, all standing at the ready for you to take matters into your own hands.
Once you’ve found the right spot, you’ll want to call ahead to make sure they’re open (Mom and Pop play by their own rules) before taking to the fields with your day-tripping accomplice, hauling the goods back to your place and preparing the day’s bounty over a bottle of barolo.
Congratulations, you just got the good leads.
