Dating - Preparing Activity after Dinner

Sometimes a date will end right after dinner.  Other times you can go to another place such as a bar, or go bowling, or see a movie.  It is your responsibility to find out what the other person likes to do and then suggest it.  If the date was strictly for dinner, then it will be difficult, but in this case, Mike suggested a dinner and a movie, or another thing.  That means Janet should have left the night open.

"Have you seen Master and Commander yet?  I heard it was a good movie."
"No, I haven't."
"There is an 8:30 showing down the street.  Would you like to go see it?"

Mike made sure to look up movie times and locations before the movie.  Then when he suggests a movie, he has all the information.

"What do you like to do when you are not studying?"
"I like to hang out with friends and drink a little and I also like to go bowling sometimes."
"Do you want to go bowling after dinner?  We can have a few drinks while we play.  It will be fun."

In this scenario, Mike is using both her interests here.  In the States, they serve alcohol so drinking and bowling together is a great option.
