First Date is a mission in given to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas protagonist Carl Johnson by Catalina from The Welcome Pump bar in the town of Dillimore in Red County, San Andreas.
Catalina is inside The Welcome Pump in Dillimore and is threatening two men with a
knife. Carl enters the room and explains to her that he is looking for a friend's cousin, who he discovers is Catalina. The two leave The Welcome Pump and Catalina explains to Carl that they are going to rob four locations across the county: a Gasso petrol station, an Inside Track betting shop, a liquor store and a bank.
There is no monetary reward for completing the mission, which is technically a cutscene; the only thing Carl needs to do is arrive with (or obtain afterward) a vehicle. The missions
Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store and Small Town Bank are unlocked. However, after completing the chosen mission, the other three missions need unlocking once again. Upon completion of the first job, The Truth will also invite Carl by phone to meet him at a motel in Angel Pine.
