A girl I've been crushing on finally agreed to go out with me. How can I wow her on our first date?

I'd think of something cheap and fun; free if at all possible. Maybe a bar that has boardgames. Connect 4 never fails. Do something where you can talk. People always try'na go to the movies. You can't talk at the movies. You need an opportunity to talk to this chick so she can see how unique you are. Then I'd say talk about pretty much whatever comes to your mind: Society, movies, music, plantlife, animal life, science, history, literature, habits, hobbies, oddities, random stuff. Actually, the more random the better - she'll think you're wacky and she'll love it.
