Rage with Nicolas Cage: 5 Date Ideas for You and Your Nationally Treasured Bae

January 24, 2020

You’re in the capital city.  Home to monuments, history, politics, news, and those cherry blossom trees that everyone freaks out about -- it’s the place to BE. But are you feeling (red, white, and) blue about your DC dating life? Did the National Postal Museum fail to make any of the 5 dates you brought there weak in the knees?

While we applaud your consistency and perseverance, it seems you may have forgotten the most exciting fact about this buzzing capital. Let us help. 2 words. 11 letters.  

N I C O L A S    C A G E

Forget the founding fathers, this hero brought us to tears in his cinematic search for the National Treasure. Hearts pumping, eyes twitching, tensions rising -- everyone who’s anyone felt this as they watched Nic Cage, legend that he is, follow clue after clue to steal the Declaration of Independence and find the lost National Treasure of the Knights Templar. And guess what? He got the girl at the end. This dude pulls.

So take a page from Cage. Enough with the museums and monuments, it’s time to show your bae you’re capable of more than naming the date of the world’s first postage stamp. It's time for you to steal your own National Treasure -- bae's heart, that is. With these date ideas as your guide, you're sure to become the newest Saint Nicolas of DC.  


Well. It’s a stretch.  But hey you might as well train for the occasion. You never know, right?  And what better way to cozy up to your date than during the thrill of a fun mission.


We can’t all be Nic Cage, but by God we can try.
