My family (myself, my sister and our parents) are heading off shortly for a vacation in Rome, Italy. My family likes to write a lot; my parents are actually taking on online writing course at the moment, and I have a fair bit of writing to do for work.

I asked out a cute person, and he said yes, but... where do I want to go tomorrow night?

Could just be a drink or coffee, doesn't have to be a restaurant.
