3. Dress it down a little. And I guess by this, I mean don't wear your prom dress if we're heading out for Mexican!?

2. Have some drinks (if you do) but not so many you forget our name... Or puke. Again, there can be too much of a good thing!?

1. EAT. Come on!!! Have a meal! Nothing is sexier than a woman who loves food, And doesn't forget our name... And doesn't puke.
