The other night, in an uncharacteristically spontaneous way, Marcus suggested that we get a babysitter so that the two of us could check out an area of town with new bars and restaurants and lounges. Since it had been an embarrassingly long time since we had a date night, I booked the sitter before he even had the words out of his mouth.
We had a great time.
I wish I could remember the name of this cocktail so that I could tell you to avoid it at all costs. Seriously horrible. Like chilled minty mouthwash.
But it was expensive, so I drank it all. Because I'm thrifty.
Dinner was great -- a place called Straits.
A lovely night. And a great reminder that we need to do date night more often.
