The Art Institute is giving away pretty much the perfect date night (in our opinion). Head over to the museum's website and write a few sentences about how Roy Lichtenstein's art captures a moment from your life. And since the artist's subjects range from comics to hot dogs to washing machines, you probably don't have to think too hard to find a connection to your life.

In a couple weeks museum staff will pick their favorite, and the winner gets a guided tour of Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective and dinner for two at Terzo Piano, which sounds like a great evening, even if you bring a platonic pal.

In case you missed it, we saw the retrospective a few weeks ago and offered our thoughts here.
