I got a number from a really cute girl and she seems like a very fun person. So I'm just putting this out there for suggestions of what you think would be a good idea for a first date?
Obviously I want something that is going to allow us to talk. There are no local sports teams with home games this week and the weather still isn't great enough to guarantee doing things outside. I was kind of thinking ice skating. Any original suggestions?

I love the ice skating idea- just make sure she's the kind of girl who a) doesn't mind making a bit of a fool of herself if she can't skate well or b) already knows how to skate and enjoys it. (I fall into the first category). It gets you talking, it's fun, it's a casual activity that avoids the awkwardness of more formal first dates.
I don't know if your town/city has an indoor mini-golf facility, but I've always thought that was a good first date idea too- it's fun, a little friendly competition, and some time to get to know each other a little better without too much pressure.
Bowling is another good one- same idea as the first two- fun, casual, ice-breaker, get to know each other stuff.
And, fyi, I'm not particularly good at any of these activities, so I wouldn't worry if one or both of you isn't the world's best skater/golfer/bowler.
The other nice thing is that, if the date goes well, after you're done skating/golfing/bowling, you can go grab a cup of coffee, a drink, dinner etc without it being awkward. And, if it's not going so well, it's an easy way to politely and gently end the date before it gets overly awkward for you both. Good luck!0
