Its 97 degrees outside, you’re sweating through your shirt as soon as you step outside, and all you want to do is stay inside and watch The Wire—yep, it’s August in Baltimore.

While you may be desperate for a break from the heat, there’s unfortunately only one month of summer left which means now is the time to live it up before that polar vortex comes back in a couple months, ugh. So if you haven’t been spending your summer hitting the beach, smashing crabs and dating any and every available girl in the city, now’s your last chance to get that tan, make some bad decisions, lock down that summer fling, and get over to the best new spot in the city: Encantada.

Encantada is coming to you from inside of the American Visionary Art Museum, and is definitely the best addition to the Baltimore dating scene in a very, very long time. Seriously, what could be a better date than wandering through a museum and then having a delicious meal afterwards? Yup, not a lot, so it’s pretty much guaranteed to blow her away.

Anyway, while you make small talk and gaze into each other’s eyes, you’ll get to enjoy amazing plates like the Pork (how romantic) or some Garden Fries while you sip some of the fantastic wines, the bomb-dot-com brews and the creative cocktails like the Cheshire Cat. Could it sound any more tempting?

But for real, you’ll have such a good time here it’s almost guaranteed you and your date will be feeling great, making it the perfect time to head to your place for some after date activities… like Yahtzee.

So head Encantada for a great date this summer, you’ll be glad you did.
