Just want to show her a good time. She has never played pool, so I think this would be a good opportunity to get closer to her (teach her how to handle the stick and balls).
Was thinking of going to a park or something before and or a cafe before/after. Been a while since I have been on a 'first date' sort of situation and I am a bit borked on money atm so cheap but fun is good.
Also she doesnt drink booze so bar hopping is kinda out.
This is what I call a "conventional date idea." That is where the date centers around a pre-arranged standard social activity: dinner, a party, bowling, etc. To be succinct, these are uncreative and are less likely to WOW the girl.
Instead, think of something outside the box.
As for her not drinking, I have dated straight-edge vegans (neither principle of which I subscribe to) and still had a great time. Her not drinking is actually good, as you shouldn't be taking her to a bar anyway, as how could one possibly set the foundation for a successful relationship by taking them to a loud place that is not conducive to communication, and then getting drunk? It could
work out, but the odds are not in your favor.
