I can count the number of dates we've had in 2010 on one hand, and there's still a thumb left over. I can't tell you how nice it was to linger over dinner. To chat and eat slowly and not have to worry about keeping the third wheel happy. The food was fantastic, the mojitos were some of the best we've had, and the company - of course - was a treat.
Not once did I hear HEY! MORE! or ALL DONE! AAAALLLL DOOONNNNNE! while I was trying to squeeze in a mouthful. No one decided, once our food was put in front of us, that we wanted something DIFF-INT! No one squirmed in the chair, trying to break free to run amok through the restaurant. And I didn't have to clean anyone up afterwards.
Date night, indeed. The next one is already scheduled, and October 16th can't come soon enough!
