Dvorak's Dating tips
for the Orchestra

Guys

step one

You need a date- don't discriminate on major-  the girl across the room, at Starbucks or in the gym, pick a good one.

step two

Once you've picked the girl, use this pick-up line, "Hey, do you want to see Cleveland's only winning team?"

step three

When the girl agrees, plan the date accordingly... dinner in Little Italy beforehand is a +100 on the dating scale.

step four

Dress appropriately- don't wear the tuxedo you would wear to your wedding, but don't wear your workout clothes either. For more help on this step, see: How to dress and feel comfortable at the Cleveland Orchestra

step five

You've arrived! Enjoy the concert and be sure to hold her hand through the dissonance.

step one

Getting your guy to plan a romantic evening may be difficult at times. A Cleveland Orchestra concert is a great date-night selection, so here are a few ways you can "hint" to your guy to plan your next date night at the Cleveland Orchestra.

step two

Begin hinting about a Cleveland Orchestra concert by placing Orchestra brochures, ticket stubs, and concert schedules around your guy's apartment or home. Place these items strategically- on the fridge, on the cork board hanging in his bedroom, or on his kitchen counter, to name a few.

step three

Strategically re-post Cleveland Orchestra's social media statuses- and make it a note that your guy, your friends, and even your neighbor's Aunt Sally see it on your Facebook wall or Twitter feed. This step will worst best if you try to be as discretely obvious as possible. By showing your interest in Orchestra upcoming events, any person your guy asks for date/ gift ideas will more likely suggest an Orchestra concert.

step four

Claim an outfit designated your "Orchestra wear", and make sure he takes note of this special outfit. The name and designation itself will be a big reminder how great an idea an Orchestra nigh-out really is.

step five

When in doubt, always pair with food. Suggest an Orchestra concert directly and pair with dinner before hand. Uptown Cleveland is just a few yards down from Severance Hall, and is now bustling with many restaurant options to choose from-perfect for any night out at the Orchestra.
