I love foreign food markets, and walking and talking go well together. going shopping for supper at a market sounds great.
The bar scene is an interesting and surreal place, sometimes fun, sometimes not. Most of the time I'd rather get together with friends for a house party. If the bar is where you want to be every friday night we might not share the same pace of life.
Still, it can be exciting going out, meeting new people, new situations. That's why we're here right?
maybe just go for sterotypical coffee, or whatever seems worth doing. maybe a movie, but that sounds like better third date material.
