This thread has some really great ideas, the funny/cool pictures idea particularly sounds like something very easy to do and a great way to dhv if its a picture of you doing something bad as*. I don't have much to add but I have one suggestion with regards to the resturaunt aspect of the thread. I had a bad experience trying to surprise this HB7 I was seeing a while back, before learning about pick up. I had gone on 2 dates prior to bars/resturaunts fairly low key casual places. Both went very well, probably could have f closed, but AFC me didn't see the signs then, or have the balls to make the move. I should also note I did f close her the night I met her a few weeks prior.
For the third date I told her it was a surprise where we were going. I decided to take her to a slightly fancier more serious place that was really popular in my area that I knew she hasn't been to. BIG mistake on my part on a few levels lol. I didn't tell her where we were going till after picking her up to which she was surprised and in her mind underdressed for so she made me take her home to change. She wasn't under dressed at all but that's just a girl thing I guess. That kind of ruined the night as she seemed kind of mad and we were late and missed my reservation so we had to sit around waiting for a while. The food was not good either, and really over priced.
Lesson I learned was surprises can be good if performed properly. She was clearly excited the few days leading up to our bad date considering how much she was texting mean trying to figure out where we were going. It adds some mystery and excitement. Where I messed up was going somewhere slightly fancy too soon and not making sure she had some sense of what to expect. Lesson also learned is like lock down mentioned, know some good places to go. I had never been to this place before and didn't know the food would be bad and expensive (100$ for 2 with a bottle of wine). My suggestion is if you are going to surprise her, make sure she has some idea so she can be prepared/know what to wear. Like I said, she wasn't under dressed to me, but women can be sensitive big time when it comes to how they are dressed.
