The Man Date
This NYT article about the man date is hillarious. I think I've gone on plenty of man dates. It's usually a lunch or dinner, and it's funny, we always do seem to follow the same guide lines as outlined in thie article.
Hmmmm, I don't think I've ever gone on a man date with any friends from back home.

"He explicitly said, 'I know this is kind of weird, but we should probably go,' " said Matthew Speiser, 25, recalling his conversation with John Putman, 28, a former classmate from Williams College.
The weirdness was apparent once they reached the museum, where they semi-avoided each other as they made their way through the galleries and eschewed any public displays of connoisseurship. "We definitely went out of our way to look at things separately," recalled Mr. Speiser, who has had art-history classes in his time.
