From WWWMerriam-Webster Dictionary
Date - an appointment to meet at a specified time; especially : a social engagement between two persons that often has a romantic character
If one person asks the other person to meet them someplace or to go with them someplace at an agreed upon time and they are doing this for the purpose of enjoying the others company it is a date.
A date usually occurs between members of opposite sexes. It can also be a date if the two people involved are homosexual.
If two people just happen to meet up and do something together they are hanging out.
