Sports, bites and smoke delights

DOWNTOWN SAN JOSE

By Leslie Moniz

Destination:  The Farmers Union (Downtown  San Jose).
When: Evening, unless it happens to be football season, then early morning will suffice.
You’ll need: A hefty appetite and Mediterranean state of mind.
Cash factor: Light.

Are you both into sports paired with a delicious cuisine? If so, The Farmers Union is definitely a spot worth checking out. Their set up can accommodate any dating stage you happen to be in. Whether it’s your first date and you want to keep things a little casual, or you’re in a long-term committed relationship, you can’t lose here. The bar is huge and has lots of TVs for watching your favorite local sports teams. (Go Dubs,Sharks, and 49ers!) Or, use your negotiating skills with the hostess and get a private ‘cabana-type’ booth. When ordering, keep in mind the portions are huge, so share a couple apps and an entree and you will be set for the evening. If you’re feeling like taking this date to another level, walk around the corner to Tangerine Hookah. A little tea, some peach flavored tobacco and a smoke “o” competition makes for a memorable night on the streets of SJ.
