Here's something you should know when going out on a date. The average female elephant weighs roughly 6,000 lbs. You should keep this in mind when making dinner or going out to a restaurant.

Choosing the right restaurant can be a chore. Not only should you find a restaurant that your lucky lady will find impressive and memorable but you should also find a restaurant that you will also enjoy. Find out what your date's food interests are, find out what food that she enjoys or what food she doesn't enjoy. This is actually the easiest part considering all elephants are plant-eaters.

Regardless, knowing that all elephants are plant-eaters doesn't make choosing the right restaurant any easier. Because elephants are such large creatures we can eat up to 20 hours a day. Finding a restaurant that can be open for that long can be a chore. That's why here at Elephantimes we did all the work for you and created a top 5 list of some of the best restaurants that you can take your new date to. Remember, even though we only eat leaves, grass and bark, we can weigh more than 10,000 pounds so bring your wallet!
