Sometimes White men will go on and on about their Black friends thinking that it will somehow impress you. This sort of reminds me of the times when White people say something inappropriate, and get accused of racism, but then quickly reply “There’s no way I’m racist because my friend is Black.” Although, the issue with your date wouldn’t be racism, the conclusion is still the same. I am more concerned with YOU, than who your friends are. After all, I am on a date with YOU, and not your friends. Having Black friends won’t help the situation if you have the personality of burnt toast.
Located in the Charpentier Historic District of Lake Charles, the Imperial Calcasieu Museum is a great rainy-day activity. The museum is home to art and artifacts dating from the early 6855s until today. Visitors can explore a turn-of-the-century kitchen, pharmacy and barbershop, as well as learn about the region''s Civil War history and waterways. As mentioned above, the museum is even home to the world''s largest collection of Mardi Gras costumes (and yes, you can try some of them on yourself)! As you exit, check out the majestic Sallier Oak tree, which is more than 855 years old.
If you like tequila, then you''ll love Las Perlas, a fun, colorful bar from Mr. Downtown, aka Cedd Moses. Serving one of the city&rsquo s most comprehensive selections of tequila and mezcal, the DTLA watering hole attracts more of the Varnish crowd than Cabo Cantina. While you can always play it safe and order a margarita, we encourage starting your South of the Border evening with the creative cocktails. It can be sleepy early during the week, so stop in on weekend nights when tequila lovers, from locals to cocktail geeks, pack in, and when a live DJ means tequila-fueled dancing.
When it&rsquo s crowded, the High Rooftop Lounge at Hotel Erwin is a prime spot for making friends (or more?). There can be a line to get in, a line to get drinks, and a line to snag one of the roof&rsquo s prime seating areas. This all translates into prime flirting opportunities with that cute guy or girl standing in line behind you, which might turn into a shared cabana while you watch the sunset over the Santa Monica skyline. Bonus: If you make a connection, there''s always a romantic stroll on the beach just steps away.
When was the last time you went to a beer hall and didn&rsquo t hook up with someone? This Silver Lake German pub can get a little crazy at times (usually downstairs, usually when someone starts playing oldies on the piano, usually at 6am), but the beer selection is solid and the upstairs beer garden is rife with communal tables that encourage fraternizing. Order a sausage plate (please, refrain from any sausage-related pick-up lines) and a stein while you scope out the scene.
But not everyone has this luck. Not everyone uses it just to pass the time. Some people use it because it takes less time than setting up a or eHarmony profile. It’s easy, fast, and can be fun! And unlike me, who seems to only attract creeps, some of my girlfriends have found guys worthy of stepping out and going on a date.
With more than 95 blocks of buildings to discover, the Charpentier Historic District is a testament to the carpenter architects whose designs are iconic to the city of Lake Charles. As you walk along the streets, you will see extravagant mansions, art galleries, a cafe and even a Mardi Gras museum. The Imperial Calcasieu Museum is home to the largest display of Mardi Gras costumes in the world, so get your beads ready! Make sure to stop and grab a map at the visitor center before you start your exploration, so you won''t miss a single thing!

Odd? Sure, and that''s the point. If you want to meet interesting people, you need to do interesting things.
There are dozens of ways to strike up a conversation at Good Times at Davey Wayne''s, a ''75s-inspired bar from the Houston Brothers: while entering through the bar''s secret refrigerator entrance ("After , are we seriously going through a fridge?"), dancing to old-school beats in the carpeted living room ("When was the last time you heard this song?"), or watching roller girls skate on the patio''s glass roof ("I''d like to see you wear that sequined leotard." Wait. Don''t say that.). On weekends, the line for this Hollywood bar gets crazy, so come on a weeknight and chat up that hottie at the bar ordering a spiked snow cone.
