When you live in San Francisco, it is easy to get sucked into one neighborhood and never leave. The idea of a date is more like a trip to the bar you go to every night rather than a dinner and a movie. However, there are often times that you want to entertain a first date and show them more than your neighborhood bar.
You hate the idea of dinner and a movie, but it seems like a good option considering price. This article is an idea for a bike date and a twist to the traditional dinner and a movie routine.
Do Dinner and a Movie with a Cinematic Twist
How do you show someone a good time with dinner and a movie without paying a lot of money or being too cheesy? If you are looking for an option that will result in Facebook photo postings everyone will love, consider a bike date that involves retracing the footsteps of a popular movie. You can start at one location, take pictures, recite the lines of the movie, and bike to the next place. At some point, you can catch dinner and a movie.

My favorite filmed in San Francisco film is "Dirty Harry." The filming locations throughout San Francisco for "Dirty Harry" form a nice maze in the city. Arrange your route for the perfect first date. There are enough locations for subsequent bike dates as well.

Finding a Place to Dine on Your Dinner and a Movie Tour
When it's time to decide on a place to eat for your dinner and a movie outing you will find the "Dirty Harry" film location tour delivers. With only a few exceptions, every place is within range of a restaurant you can truly enjoy. Just be sure to keep in mind that some parts of the city (outside of your neighborhood) shut down a little earlier than others.
