I need some ideas where to go on a date in or near Lakewood (1st, 2nd dates…), no lounges please!June 5, 2011 11:55 am at 11:55 am #775922yeshivaguy1Participant
try the mini golf place (swingtime) down the 9. Or one of the bowling places -do Howell lanes if you don’t want to be seen. Take a boat onto lakewood lake or Lake Shenadoa.June 5, 2011 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #775923rebbi gershonMember
DO NOT go on a first date on lakewood lake!! you will get seen by EVERYONE!!June 5, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #775924popa_bar_abbaParticipant
The Capitol is a nice hotel.June 5, 2011 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #775925

Well, it is nice. But I’d sure like to see someone go there on a date.June 5, 2011 4:13 pm at 4:13 pm #775927June 5, 2011 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #775928
For a restaurant- go to Deal.
You could go to Point Pleasant to the Aquarium (Jenkinsons). I’ve seen a date at Allaire Park once. Really Lakewood ain’t a good place for dates. The nearest decent lounge is in Princeton.June 6, 2011 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #775929sem20Member
what about in brooklyn??June 6, 2011 5:43 pm at 5:43 pm #775930
” The Capitol is a nice hotel. “
Or for something more causal, you could go to the new amusment park / arcade, “Crazy House”.
I’ve heard this mentioned that a few times, so you might give this place a try. (wear confortable shoe, though)June 6, 2011 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #775931BSDMember
The Irv is a nice hotel too!June 6, 2011 6:45 pm at 6:45 pm #775932

I heard that it’s gross inside but it would definitely be a smart place to go!June 6, 2011 7:01 pm at 7:01 pm #775933BSDMember
“I heard that it’s gross inside but it would definitely be a smart place to go!”
That is if you are having a miserable date and want to drop the girl in a hurry.
In my days it was so bad I had mushrooms growing from the ceiling. I had maintenance remove the carpet which left the concrete slab exposed. It looked like a garage. Thank G-d I wasn’t “parked” there too long.
All seriousness aside, the boardwalk is always nice, so long as it’s not a weekend.June 6, 2011 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #775934apushatayidParticipant
Take in a Blue Claws game.June 6, 2011 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #775935
Or you could browse the freezer section, to see what’s on sale 🙂June 7, 2011 1:58 am at 1:58 am #775936Boro Park GirlMember
depending on how long you want to drive, but if you’re willing, there are very nice private/quiet parks in staten island.June 7, 2011 2:18 am at 2:18 am #775937walter sobchskMember
starbuck.or upstairs from wegmans on route 9 in manalapan has a place to sit upstairs.point pleasant or sea side heights.June 7, 2011 2:21 am at 2:21 am #775938walter sobchskMember
you also have Blackbeards Cave thats about half an hour away has minature golf arcades etcJune 7, 2011 3:43 am at 3:43 am #775939minyan galMember
walter s: Are you serious? You actually think that sitting upstairs at Wegman’s is considered a date??June 7, 2011 4:13 am at 4:13 am #775940shlishiMember
minyan: Sure. Why not?June 7, 2011 5:17 am at 5:17 am #775941
“I heard that it’s gross inside”
Like any dorm, it’s how you keep it. Generalizations are never accurate. Anybody can keep their room neat as a pin, if they want to.
And like the other dorms are nicer?!?June 7, 2011 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #775942
I disagree. If, for example, the carpet was old and the paint was peeling, it’s gross no matter how neat you keep the room. I was never inside the Irv so I can’t say if that’s the case there but when someone tells me it’s gross, this is the kind of thing I think of. I was never in any yeshiva dorm so I can’t compare (although I was in a dira).June 7, 2011 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #775943veteranMember
“Or you could browse the freezer section, to see what’s on sale :)”
Nothing is on sale- looking for a sale in the freezer section amounts to finding the second best bochur in Lakewood. It doesn’t exist.June 7, 2011 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #775944
“.. amounts to finding the second best bochur in Lakewood. It doesn’t exist”
Ah, but if you know how to read the production code, you can readily tell which package is soon approaching its expiration date 🙂June 7, 2011 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #775945TweetTweetParticipant
The Irv happens to me a very nice dorm, compared to others. A few years ago, they renovated and now all the rooms have central AC and some have carpet. Plus there is a cleaning crew which cleans the bathrooms every day and vaccums the carpet rooms.June 7, 2011 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #775946minyan galMember
Bpt, can you just picture it? He brings the girl home and her mother asks the usual – “did you have a nice time?” “Sure, Ma, I can help you with the grocery shopping now. I learned how to check expiration dates. And by the way, chickens are on sale.”June 10, 2011 4:15 am at 4:15 am #775947
dunno – Read TweetTweet’s post. It wasn’t bad in my day and now it’s even better. Don’t spread Motzay shem rah!June 10, 2011 5:27 am at 5:27 am #775948
Sorry. As I said, I was never inside and just going based on what I heard.June 10, 2011 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #775949
“Sure, Ma, ……And by the way, chickens are on sale”
Please MG, tell me my intended joke about the “freezer section” did not escape you.
