Some of the more interesting points:
- 71 percent of Miamians prefer to drink wine on a date, which is far and away the highest rate in the country.
- Only 14 percent prefer beer, the lowest rate in the country. Which just confirms that, no, Miami is not a beer town.
- Buzzfeed also points out "Drinking dates that mention a specific type of alcohol get three times more responses than those that just suggest 'a drink.' So hedge you bets and mention wine.
- Miamians also have a much higher than average preference for Italian food.
- Cuban food only came in fourth (probably because most prefer it homemade), but it didn't show up for any other city.
- Miami also had the 8th highest number of cultural dates posted on the site.
