    I have a serious question-why on earth do boys take girls to hotels on the first date it is so uncomfortable.

    There is just something with after a long day of work and the lights are really low that makes me kind of sleepy.If someone MUUSSTT go to a hotel lounge and meet the world there at least take a walk or play a board game.To me Hotel dates are when things are getting serious and its DMC time.

    #774372

    Ames: DMC- deep meaningful conversation

    Ames-syriansephardi is correct- dmc’s are very serious and intense conversations.

    By the way i read somewhere that chazal say that eating brings closeness between peole so maybe thats why people go out to eat on dates.That is also why we have yayin nesech-we don’t want to get to close to the goyim…

    yayin nesech? you sure about that?

    what’s the difference between sitting with a goy and drinking regular wine and wine that’s mevushal?

    and never mind that yayin nesech applies to wine even (or should i say especially?) when it’s out of your sight. with means you’re not sitting with the goy.

    #774375

    By2: yup and also that’s why bishul goyim…

    #774376

    Moish: she is right. And I forgot the reason

    ames, yeah I absolutely despise lobbies on first dates, It came in handy once though- we were sitting opposite the bar and during the quiet times we watched the football game that was on the tv….

    i thought it had to do with the “nesech” for a “korban” for avoda zara.

    can we get another guy on here?

    ok, i know 72 left but it just came to me.

    yayin nesech is what i said about avoda zara – and it’s assur.

    stam yayin is wine that’s not mevushal and is touched or owned by a goy – and it’s also assur. and i think boiled wine is not a problem because it can’t be used for nesech.

    basyisroel – you’re right about the drinking together thing – because it leads to intermarriage. i just don’t remember why yayin mevushal would solve that problem… there’s a gemara that discusses this… it’s killing me

    moish01,

    I think the “cooking” process affects the taste of the wine. That’s one reason kosher wine often isn’t considered as high-quality as non-kosher, and isn’t generally mentioned in wine columns (one notable exception: every year, the Wall Street Journal devotes one of its weekly wine columns to kosher wines for the seder).

    #774383

    Ames: to tell u the truth I’m all confused now lol but I remember the rabbi said the goy can’t cook ur food even if ur there…….that’s bishul goyim no? Maybe I meant to say we can have pat goyim as long as the jew turns on the fire?!

    #774384

    moish01
    Member

    bishul yisroel is when a jew turns on the fire.

    i think bishul yisroel sfardi is that a jew has to take part in the cooking process. like stirring or something.

    that was a wild guess

    anon, you can’t “bond” with a goy over boiled wine? true, the taste is different, but wine is wine.

    Moish, do you know a goy that would drink Cream Malaga? LOL.

    To be honest, if you want to bond with a non Jew, you will find ways.

    #774389

    Ames, like I said I’m totally confused!!!!!!!! But yeah u do say bishul yisrael to a resteraunt…..

    Moish: I don’t think they have to stir or anything, just turn on the fire

    #774390

    Ok guys now I got it:

    Bishul goyim- assur

    Bishul yisrael- ashkenaz-jew has to turn on the fire, sephardic-jew has turn on fire AND do something with the cooking(u were right moish)

    All this wine talk made me think of a great idea:

    Going to a winery! I think it would be so cool though I don’t think they give tours…

    #774395

    Member

    Most winerys (?wineries) actually do give tours…

    Just make sure you or your date don’t get drunk. Or better yet, that would be good cuz you’ll get to see the real person!

    moish01,

    I think the mevushal process may be relatively new.

    Never done a winery tour, but have toured a brewery (Anheuser Busch), though not on a date. It was OK but you don’t get to see much of the factory. You do have to be 21 to drink the beer sample; there’s soft drinks for everyone else.

    That’s what happens when you skim 🙂

    I had visited the wineries in Napa Valley about 3 years ago; now those are wineries.

    nope! 🙂

    in fact if you’re ever in the San Francisco area for some reason, check out Napa Valley if you really want to know what a real winery is like.

    #774409

    Does Kedem give a guided tour? I think the Yekev is about two hours North of the City. That would be a fun and enjoyable date, only if you are allowed to sample and taste the Wines at the end of the Tour.

    I’ve been to quite a few brewery tours and I loved them! I went both pre and post legal age. My favorite was Coors in Golden Colorado.

    I also “toured” the coke place in Atlanta (they dont show you much).

    Factory tours are generally pretty cool. I went to Stoneyfield Farms in VT, John Deere Factory in Iowa, Harley Davidson in Madison WI…I’m sure there are a bunch around here. There are so many cool things to see!

    myshadow- why do you not like starbucks? I think it’s great-You can have a small black coffee/ice coffe there with soy milk(check the hechser at each starbucks) which is $2.something which is cheaper that a $6.00 flat soda at a boring Hotel!

    BasYisroel2- The problem I have with Starbucks is that I don’t like coffee (mods, don’t throw me out of here please) and I end up ordering water which costs more than coffee. Go figure that one out.

    You’re treading on thin ice AL2. YW Moderator-72 :o) thanks coke not pepsi
