Your nose starts twitching. Your eyes begin watering. There is a tingle in your hands and feet. Something is different -- you can smell it, taste it, even. It’s a sensation, an essence, a vibe, if you will.
Something. Has. Changed.
Yup, you guessed it, that’s LOVE you feel in the air, Floridians. And you know what that means.
It’s time for ABC’s The Bachelorette to begin once again.
Cue the drama, the tears, the betrayals, the love (this one’s questionable), and definitely, DEFINITELY, cue the booze.
Maybe you love The Bachelorette and have been counting down the days until season 12 aired on May 23rd, or maybe you think there is a strong negative correlation between the minutes a person has been watching the show and the amount of brain cells still remaining in their cerebral cortex.
Either way, there’s one thing these contestants are undoubtedly good at: turning love into a drinking game.
Together, alone, too much: these people are the kings and queens at getting their fix of liquid courage and cozying up with new dates. So get inspired by the Bachelorette pros and explore Miami date night through rosé tinted glasses.
You’ve done it. You’ve scored yourself a date and tonight’s the night. You look good, feel good, smell good, and have been drinking coffee in your basement and listening to pump up music for the past 4 hours. You feel ready. But as you pause your music to think about the night ahead, you realize how little you know about this person you’re meeting.
What do they like? Are they talkative? What do I say if there’s an awkward pause? What do I do with my hands?!
Take some notes from experienced, televised pros. Every first episode of ABC’s The Bachelorette begins with contestants knocking back one or two (or the occasional 6) cold ones to ease their nerves about introductions.
Follow their lead and bring your bae to a 4 Venue Bar Crawl through Miami. Get instant access to clubs with no lines and no cover fees -- people might think you actually are on The Bachelorette.
This date night will have you winning hearts faster that you can say “first impression rose.”
Looking for a night out on the town with a little more sophistication? Impress your significant other with your interest in the finer things in life, like history, art, and free sh*t.

While you listen to insight on the glamorous past Miami decades, sip on one of your four free drinks. It’s the perfect date interaction/distraction ratio. But with all the free drinks just remember -- the bachelorette never picks the guy that jumps in the pool naked at the end of the night.
Sit beside each other as stroke by stroke (and sip by sip) you begin to feel sparks fly. “Really let your walls come down,” as the Bachelorette’s love to say they do, and get in touch with your sensitive, artsy side.

Impress your date with your final product -- which by drink number 3 should look pretty damn good regardless of your talents.
So you’re a beer snob. Seeing someone drink a Bud Light Lime makes you cringe? You’ll only date someone who appreciates REAL beer?
Alright. We can work with that.
Do as the Bachelorette does and (subtly) force your date to participate in a date night activity you love. Spend your time in a brewing course and learn the in’s and out’s of how to brew your own IPA. And then maybe go grab some pre-brewed drinks.
If you’ve seen even one episode of The Bachelorette or The Bachelor, you’ll know one thing for certain: there is no date like a date on the water.
As soon as the televised couple steps foot on that sailboat there is a 10/10 chance you will hear at least one of the following:
“I feel a connection”
“I can just be myself around him/her”
“My walls are really starting to come down”
“I didn’t think I’d fall in love”
Well if you see it on the big screen then it MUST work in real life, right? Right.
So instead of just your average date night, try a Miami water activity and let it work its magic.
But don’t forget to get your drank on. The above lines only work under the protective cover of a beer-blanket.Danger Charters
