Next stop for the infamous BDM – a romantic dinner for two (plus a
few nosy reporters) at Nove Nove at 99 King St.
This cozy yet classy restaurant seemed to be the perfect setting for
Eric and Katherine to get to know each other.
The entire meal was filled with laughter and chatter and possibly a
little flirting. Whether it was the chocolates or just the romantic
atmosphere that comes with being driven around in the BDM, Katherine and
Eric managed to enjoy dinner, even with the camera flashing in their eyes
every once in a while.
The couple talked about everything from their hometowns to their future
plans and even their worst dates. There was some serious eye contact going
on throughout the meal, as well as a lot of laughter.
However, in a sad turn of events, it was revealed after the meal that no
sex-related topics were ever discussed (both candidates were immediately
docked five points).
After dinner, the two were individually grilled by the love-starved
Gazette vultures. Eric had only positive things to say about his date.
"It's going really well. When I saw her, I thought she was cute."
"Dinner was good, there were no pauses," Eric said. "She's very open. I
thought she'd be nervous, but she really opened up to me."
Eric was happy with The Gazette and our choice of his date, which gave him
five more points in the love bank. He said Katherine seemed like the kind
of girl he might have gone out with had he met her elsewhere. "She
actually found the stuff I said to be funny."
"Worst date stories" had been the most entertaining topic of the evening.
"She went out with some guy who was a big drug addict and I went on a date
where I poked myself in the eye with a spoon." (insert your own spoon joke
here – Eric will understand)
Why the chocolates? "Well, I was planning to bake cookies, but I didn't
know if she was allergic to anything," he said.
How utterly romantic – we gave Eric 10 points.
Katherine seemed particularly skeptical of the media, clearly showing her
cunning intelligence. "What exactly is going to be published?"
Good question, Katherine. We gave her 10 points for recognizing us as the
weasels and dirtbags we are, yet felt little shame.
Maintaining a neutral perspective, Katherine described Eric in two words –
nice and polite. "He doesn't seem like the typical frat guy." (five
automatic points for Eric).
Eric said Katherine's sarcasm kept him on his toes. "She has her own
opinions, which I find very interesting."
She commented on the enjoyable dinner they shared and the flowing
conversation which had ensued. "He is really nervous about skating. I used
to figure skate."
After our staff skipped out on the bills, it was back into the BDM and
onto Victoria Park for skating. Luckily, Eric made it through dinner and
dessert without another spoon incident.
Somewhere in the vast night, The Gazette's lawyers were counting their
Gazette Love Scorecard:
Eric 20, Katherine 15
