Martinis and IMAX

A Friday night movie with alcohol at the snack bar is the classic first-date set-up. Putting an elegant spin on the norm, Fernbank Museum offers evenings featuring IMAX films, a large martini bar and a jazz trio. The museum itself is a conversation piece, and there's something cool about sipping drinks beneath giant dinosaur fossils. The combination of the movie, music and cocktails takes tension off first-date pressures and can prevent any deep conversation if you're seeking to avoid that. Even if your date is a bore, at least you can say you once downed martinis while watching life-size whales mate off the coast of California.
