I have a date tomorrow with a girl from tinder both 19. I'm picking her up at 6. Do I show up early or like 5 minutes late? And what should I wear and if the dinner goes well should I see if she wants to see a movie after sushi? Or anything after sushi and its a sushi date. Also do I try hug her when I pick her up? And what's some good things to do on a first date to break the awkwardness and that sort of stuff also fun things to do so its not just another boring date. Thankyou for your quick replies?

You show up on time.
When I meet a new girl I usually greet her with a "hi", a smile and a quick hug. You can't hesitate on these things because it will make things weird.
I find "dinner dates" to be a bit awkward. It's easy to enter "interview mode" and you usually sit opposite each other which is usually not a good thing if you want to build attraction. It's good thing for conversation and perhaps on date 3 or something. But it's up to you. I personally like to move fast.
I don't think you have to concern yourself that much about what you actually do on the date. What you should concern yourself about is making YOU interesting. If you do too fancy stuff on the first date you can come off as trying too hard. Especially if you are in a new unfamiliar element.
Ways of making yourself interesting is talking about some hobbies and interests you have. And you ask her about hers and ask follow up questions about those. I find dinner and movie dates to be the worst in terms of awkwardness. If you do some kind of activity it's easier to keep the flow of the date if you are a bit shy or insecure.0
