Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

Jaime Luckey is the Founder of Atlanta-based Date Night Magazine, a monthly mag dedicated to all things dating.  Funny and informative, Date Night dishes on dating from every angle, touching on the who/what/where/why/how that every dater is all too familiar with.  A special edition of Five Questions With, where for the first time Alluvia and Waffle House get brought up within moments of one another…

Q. You’re asked to plan the ultimate Atlanta first date for two strangers. What’s on the agenda?

A. Dinner and dancing at Alluvia.

If you’re not into steaks and strip clubs, I recommend dinner and a comedy show. Dine at Miller Union and get tickets for Laughing Skull or Whole World Theatre. For OTPers, try {three} sheets’ flavor tripping and the latest act at The Punchline.

Q. What’s the city’s best hidden gem?

A. El Bar. It’s secreted into an El Azteca restaurant for heaven’s sake! What’s sexier than Mexican flavors sweating out of a crowd of bodies on the dance floor?

Q. Best neighborhood for singles?

A. Is there such a thing??? Singles can meet one another anywhere: grocery store, post office, Waffle House (although just because a stranger springs for “All The Way” hashbrowns at 4 a.m., that doesn’t make it a date.)

Q. Most dated Atlanta icon?

A. The Big Chicken and Chick-fil-A’s closed on Sunday signs.

Q. What advice would you give to a single person relocating to Atlanta?

A. My tall friends and I are starting a campaign to bring tall single men to Atlanta, so if you’re a guy, be tall or bring tall guys with you (pro basketball players encouraged). If you’re a girl, be prepared to date within a reasonable height balance. No 5’5” girls with guys over 6’0”.

BONUS QUESTION: What is Date Night and why is it a must-read?

A. Have you ever experienced déjà vu on a date or found yourself frequenting the same familiar haunts every time you meet someone new? Date Night is here to save you from dating monotony by offering suggestions for where to go and what to do on dates, restaurant reviews (Too loud? Too dark? Not dark enough?), tips, expert relationship advice, beauty secrets, and funny dating stories.

Date Night is not a magazine exclusively for singles, however. It’s for all daters, including couples and married folks looking for ways to keep the spark lit in their relationships.
