You should whip out your Kardashian Prepaid Kard. If she sticks around after that, she's definitely not a gold digger.

True, especially if you have the Amex Zync..it's legendary now!
I call it the "White Buffalo" card. :-D

Why do I feel that whipping out the Discover More on the first date wouldn't be very impressive?
Cash is never a bad choice, just make sure you aren't low on cash...

I've also noticed I don't carry as much cash as I used to.
All the places I go to on a regular basis take plastic. Now that I think about it, the only place I go to on that doesn't take plastic is the little bodega around the corner where I go to buy cigarettes. I think I only go to withdraw $$ maybe once or twice a month, and maybe for $40-$60 at a time.
I also use Mint.com, which helps me track spending. Since the website pulls credit card tranactions in, it gives me a better idea of what I spend my money on.

Take your date to Denny's then (try to) pay with a $25 coin.
You can actually buy a legal $25 US coin from the government mint but it will cost around $600. They are made of platinum, weigh about 1/4 oz, are roughly the same color and size as a quarter. Even though it is clearly, but in a tiny font, marked $25 US, in all likelihood the waiter will think you are trying to pull some sort of fast one so be prepared with regular cash or CC with a little extra tip for the hassle. Guaranteed to make an impression on your date.
Though not, perhaps, the one you might want.
