4. Turn 3

This West Boca Raton establishment is where you'll meet the ideal "cheap date." Herein you'll find that girl or guy in cutoff jean shorts that cares way too much about NASCAR and hates Jeff Gordon more than Barack Obama (it's a close race though). Ladies, be ready to grab a headful of mullet if you take a guy home from this haunt. Fellas, be ready to loan out your white tank tops (aka wife beaters) the next morning. For best results, screen Days of Thunder before heading out to this drinking establishment. And remember the take home: rubbing is racing.

5. Lake Ida Dog Park

If you are person with a new puppy, there is no better place to pick up the opposite sex than this Delray Beach dog-lovers hideaway. You don't even have to mack here fellas, let your cutie-pie Jack Russell do all the heavy lifting and watch all the gals flock your way. Make sure to act responsibly and bring your pooper scooper though, this isn't your neighbor's front yard. Be conscientious, we know the dog crap is biodegradable but you need to act especially caring of your pup, like his turds don't bother you. You know how there are people that love their dogs, and then there are people that love their dogs. Be the latter, make it seem like Spencer (your newborn Jack Russell of course) is more like your newborn child.

6. Whole Foods

Here you'll meet the ladies fresh from working out, young moms in spandex eagerly staying fit, stocking up on kale, quinoa, and tempeh. There's also a multitude of vegetarians, pescatarian, and vegetarian dudes, some in dreads and industrial earrings, and others simply health food fanatics with tight fitting muscle shirts. Lunchtime is ideal, plenty of opportunities arise when in the warm food section, choosing between vegan burgers or beet hummus, or in the smoothie line, which is always a little longer during the lunch rush.
