'Ultimate Attraction'

You may think you've got your flirting technique down to a fine art, but how good are you at reading the signs from your opposite number?! Well, if you could use a little help in that department, head on down to the gorgeous National History Museum for their evening masterclass on 30th September, where social anthropologist and flirting mastermind, Jean Smith, will teach you everything you need to know!

This will undoubtedly be an hysterical way to spend an evening. The team promise you'll learn how to recognise, and effectively utilise, signals given by men and women to display romantic interest, as well as teaching courting rituals, borrowed from our animal friends, to make yourself completely irresistible. You'll also get to meet a perfume expert, Odette Toilette, who will be talking about the science of smell and choosing the perfect scent.

So go on, take your date and have a real giggle - you might even learn something new!

The Ultimate Attraction Masterclass is being held at The Natural History Museum (Flett Theatre, Exhibition Road Entrance) at 7pm on Friday 30th September. Tickets are £30 for non members. For more information see www.nhm.ac.uk

As of yesterday, Sam's Brasserie in Chiswick has a new bar - take a look at the pictures below to see what they've been up to over the past week...

... and don't forget, if you want to see the bar for yourself then you should enter our competition to win a meal for two (including a free bottle of wine) at Sam's Brasserie.  For full details of the competition click here.

But remember, you don't have to win our competition to go to Sam's Brasserie. Why not head down to the bar for a cocktail (or three) this weekend? Or maybe some brunch to soak up the excesses of the night before...

Sam's September Competition!

Autumn has definitely arrived so we thought we'd keep your spirits up by offering you the chance to win a meal for two at the wonderful Sam's Brasserie in Chiswick.

Always a firm favourite here at the Great Date Guide (partly because 5 first dates at Sam's have lead to engagements!) we were excited to hear that Sam and his team were re-vamping the bar... and what better way to celebrate the re-launch than with a competition?!?

Take a look below at the designs for the new bar area and click here for your chance to enter the competition.

The competition ends on the 30th September 2011... Good luck!
