We never go out for a nice dinner. Okay I lied, in November for our 1st Anniversary we went out to a really nice restaurant and we will likely dine there again this year for our 2nd Anniversary. But in general we tend not to go out somewhere nice. I thought it would be fun to dress up even though I didn't really own anything nice in maternity. Then I remembered I bought this dress for a wedding in September.
This week is restaurant week in DFW and a lot of the local nice restaurants are having a 3-course dinner for a discounted price. So we thought why not try out a place we've been dying to try out in the first place. So we headed to a local steak house called III Forks! Very tasty filet mignon & shrimp with III Forks salad and Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.
After dinner the night was still young so we wanted to come up with something else to do. With it being 110 outside patio options were a no. Bowling was a no because it was fancy date night. Bars aren't very thrilling when you can't get anything on the menu. We decided it would be nice if we could find a quaint coffee shop in the area but we are heavily over populated by Starbuck's around here. And then we remember a place called Aperitivos Coffee & Wine Bar. They had live music which was nice, but it was also ladies night which was a little loud. We stayed long enough for me to enjoy a cup of decaf cafe' mocha. It was delish!
It was kind of nice to splurge for once. Now back to our normal cheap dates which often include a free movie outing.
Do you ever splurge on date night? When's the last time you dressed up all fancy for your date? Any fun dates?
