I sit here in front of my computer,  in my office ( way, way, way away from everyone else -on the second floor of our Townsquare media...


... facility, pondering perfect ideas for those wanting to experience what Bismarck has to offer for Valentine's Day. I feel I am most qualified to dish out some sound courting advice ( even though I'm single, and have two cranky cats ).

Let's say you are about to embark on a first date - one of the scariest tasks of all mankind,- 


Step one: Make a powerful play, women like things that have been rescued...

...you know like small helpless animals, SO stop by any florist shop, dig through their trash outback, and rustle up some throw-away dandelions or whatever, wrap a rubber band around them, and perfection!  Hand them to her when you pick her up and watch her swoon. 


Step Two - Crucial that you take her to a restaurant that provides semi-free entertainment.


 Let me explain. After you and your now "madly-in-love-with-you-because-of-the-oh-so-expensive-flowers-you-gave-her" date order at HuHot Mongolian Grill, saunter over to the meat/vegetable bar and engage her in idle small talk, to impress her, thank God for the three and a half hours you spent on Google the night before researching lame, stupid trivia " Hey did you know that  Beets are believed to originate along the coasts of the Mediterranean (sea beets) and were first cultivated for their edible leaves?". 

 Step Three - ok now, pay attention, here will be the final intelligent suave move on your part that will convince her to POSSIBLY think about a second date.


 As you circle around the lifeblood of HuHot, and the chefs are flipping your food in the air gracefully, you loudly announce so all can hear  "My good gentleman, here is my reward to all of you for your mastery of skills" - then throw ONE quarter into their tip jar, and bang the gong with full force. Sit back with your date and watch the entertainment, the chanting, their expression back to you that you are a "One-of-a-kind" catch! So there you have it, some surefire FREE advice from yours truly - You're Welcome!
