  • Millennials are killing the dinner date

    12/29/2016 11:31:21 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 145 replies
    In recent years, somewhere between endless Tinder swipes and countless OkCupid matches, the dinner date has fallen by the wayside. As online dating surges in popularity, few millennials have the time, money, or desire to sit with a stranger over a long meal. Only 7 in 10,000 messages in a recent OkCupid IAC survey suggested “grabbing some dinner” and a somewhat less scientific survey this reporter conducted of several dozen actively dating 20-somethings found that dinner has become a highly taboo first date. Last month, Moody’s Investors Service slashed its operating-profit growth forecast for the restaurant sector. (This appears to...

    “Southside With You,” a movie documenting the first date of Barack and Michelle Obama in 1989, has cast its main characters. Parker Sawyers will play a young Obama as he tries to woo a young lawyer named Michelle Robinson—played by Tika Sumpter—on a rendezvous to the Art Institute of Chicago, a screening of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and a drink on the 96th floor of the John Hancock building.

    et out the cigars—Methuselah, a Judean date palm tree that was grown from a 2,000 year old seed, has become a papa plant. Elaine Solowey, of the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies at Kibbutz Ketura in Israel, recently broke the good news to National Geographic: “He is over three meters [ten feet] tall, he's got a few offshoots, he has flowers, and his pollen is good," she says. "We pollinated a female with his pollen, a wild [modern] female, and yeah, he can make dates." Methuselah sprouted back in 2005, when agriculture expert Solowey germinated his antique seed. It had...

    Officers detained five people Thursday in San Francisco after a man was robbed at gunpoint after showing up for a date he had set up online, police said. The 30-year-old victim, whom police did not name, arrived to meet his date at 12:25 a.m. near College Avenue and Mission Street just north of Interstate 280. When he did, two assailants advanced on him with a gun. The man’s would-be date joined the assailants in stealing his wallet, cell phone and money before all three took off in a black sedan.

    A radio listener recent wrote me about an interview I did on EWTN Radio with Barbara McGuigan. I mentioned that I had been doing a teaching on dating and modesty at a Theology on Tap Session. At that session I charged the men not to leave that night until they had asked a woman out on a date.This intrigued the listener who wanted me to expand on this just a bit and what if anything she could do to get the twenty-somes in her family (both male and female) to start dating again. Here is something of the response I...
  • He Lost a Bet, but He Won a Date!

    Andrew Wilcox never loses to his younger brother Ben in basketball, except for that one time he made a bet. About a month ago, the 24-year-old in Provo, Utah challenged his sibling to a round of one-on-one, noting that the loser would have to stand on a busy intersection and dance for a half hour. Turns out, Andrew was the loser. Playing the best out of three, Ben, 22, won every single basketball game. Thus, Andrew found himself booty-popping, flipping and break dancing on a cement island downtown, as documented in a YouTube video going viral this week. "I was...

    DETROIT (WJBK) - Billboards reminding Detroiters their vote is their voice are all over the city. They also mistakenly say the general election is September 2. Apparently the Detroit City Clerk's Office wanted the billboards updated on September 2 with the date of the general election. Clearly, the person responsible for the work got a little confused. No one caught the mistake until Clerk Janice Winfrey spotted the botched billboards and called the president of International Outdoor on Saturday, the same day the billboards were updated. The executive told us it was an honest mistake and his company's first in...

    Zero Hedge ^ | 07.05.13
    So much for any doubts about a September taper: with the street expecting a 165K NFP number for June, the actual print of 195K following an upward revised May print of 195K as well, means the September flow fade is now virtually assured. The Unemployment Rate stayed at 7.6% despite expectations of a drop to 7.5%, although the real action was in the underemployment rate which exploded from 13.8% to 14.3%. From the report: Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 195,000 in June, in line with the average monthly gain of 182,000 over the prior 12 months. In June, job...

    A Chicago police officer allegedly turned a $132 speeding ticket into a pick-up opportunity when he later tracked down the female driver and asked her out, saying the least he could do for the money he cost her was to treat her to dinner, according to a lawsuit the woman filed in federal court. Evagelina Paredes filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Chicago, accusing police officer Chris Collins of violating her privacy, according to the Associated Press. She alleges that after she was ticketed on Oct. 22, Collins searched for her address in the motor-vehicle database and left...

    The Ohio General Assembly approved a measure to combine the two scheduled 2012 primaries into a single date, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. Yesterday House Bill 369 repealed the change to two primaries which would have pushed Ohio's 2012 Presidential primary into June. The change from the traditional "Super Tuesday" date was deemed necessary because the new political redistricting map was not yet approved. Governor John Kasich signed the bill into law, making March 6 officially the 2012 primary date, according to the Dayton Daily News.

    Mila Kunis will indeed attend the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore, she confirmed loud and proud Thursday, putting to rest a rumor that she'd backed out. Watch the video if you can, because she said it best: "Never did I say that I was not going." That version of events was made up, she said, "and people believed it, unfortunately." The rumor, which appeared to be based on a look at Kunis' production obligations, was sketchy but got a lot of play. "I accepted an invitation and I'm staying true to my word," the actress said at a...
