So I got a first date coming up with an awesome girl. I really wanted to do something fun and not the typical dinner and movie type of thing. Unfortunately, it's suppose to rain like hell the day of and I'm stuck trying to find something fun and cool to do.
Go ahead, have some fun

So, this is what works for me, and it may or may not work for you. I have a problem in that I'm very giggly and silly when I'm nervous. This makes me come off like a flake on first dates (or at least there is a danger of me coming off this way). I actually really like dates where I'm in my element, so it helps relax me. If I can get into a position where I can show off my positive attributes, such as intelligence, even better.
for me, I love museums because I get to learn but also show off what I've learned. There is always something interesting to look at, and conversation starters.
Find out what you have in common. Do you both like sports, art, philosophy, food, etc. Then plan your date around that, so you are both in your element and get to share a passion together.
Like jazz music? Find a bar/restaurant that has live jazz. Like poetry? Find a slam poetry session and the poets will give you plenty to talk about.
Like sports? Take her to a local sports game, or give a sport a try yourselves.

Your options are a bit more limited due to the rain but I guess it depends on what you are shooting for.
Ice skating is a good idea IMO. Bowling is good. Could go dancing or even something simple like tea/coffee.
I don't think dinner is a bad idea you can even throw out the movie and the two of you cook something together and eat on the sofa. It'll give you time to talk and explore each others creative side.
