Hi Alan..

The sentence : Because after the news Penny and "I are" going on a date. isn't it : Because after the news Penny and "I am" going on a date.

Am i right??

'Dating' is a romantic courtship between two people.
If you are 'going on a date' then you are going out with another person with whom you are romantically attached. This islikely to be a special outing. You might, for example be going for a meal, or to the theatre or cinema - or possibly even to a sporting event.

It is as Alan explained in post #2.
