The following sentence is from Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary. I'm wondering if it's correct and what it means:
“Give me a couple of dates are good for you.”
Shouldn't it be “Give me a couple of dates that/which are good for you.”

This is simply a mistake in the "Extra examples" listed for the word date.
You are correct: it's necessary to include the word "that" or "which" before "are" in a sentence like this.
Rephrase that sentence as:
Kindly schedule the meeting on any of the following dates: - Date 1 - Date 2 - Date 3
We could discuss about "topic of interest" after lunch/before lunch at "meeting place". Please share your calendar for the same.
