Hello there! Did everyone have a spectacular weekend? Has spring sprung where you live?
I had a magnificent weekend full of fun activities and social gatherings. The highlight was kicking off the weekend with a real “date night” on Friday. We had tickets to the ballet, and neighbors that offered to babysit. Woohoo, it doesn’t get any better than that!
To celebrate our night out together we started at District American Kitchen and Wine Bar. I love trying new places and this one did not disappoint. Live music and cool atmosphere that was right up my alley. We made it in time for the last half an hour of Happy Hour, so we took advantage of that.
A yummy chardonnay for me, and a big bold cab for Scott.
A view of the bar. (We sat in the lounge so we could hear/watch the live music.)
One of the appetizers we got was buffalo sloppy jo sliders. Fun huh? Look how cute they are!
Then we had to hightail it over to the theater. While I would have happily walked the 5 blocks from the restaurant, when Scott saw this bicycle taxi, he thought it would be fun to try. Our “driver” was funny, and helped point out some of the neat buildings in downtown Phoenix. It was such a beautiful night and fun little cruise.
Look how beautiful the Orpheum Theater is…
Our awesome seats…
The show was outstanding and made me remember some of my old dance days. After the show was over, we thought about going for a cocktail, but we were both to exhausted. We made it home to our sleeping baby, and not 5 minutes later I was in a deep slumber. I guess I’m getting old!
What is your favorite thing to do on “date night?”
