Sometimes we all just need a night out, without the kids. Brian and I sometimes seem to be on opposite schedules that we need to schedule date nights. We hired a babysitter, my parents, to watch Austin for a few hours last night (Ella was with her father for the weekend) so we could have some adult time
Sometimes you just want to do your make-up, hair, put on a dress, and looks glamorous for a much needed date night
Brian surprised me by making reservations at a newer restaurant in the area Bonefish Grill.
I decided to try a Fall Apple martini as my drink, plus water. It was delicious and not to over powering. Brian just ordered an Octoberfest beer of some sort.
The restaurant had a fall special of dinner for 2 for $50. It included bang bang shrimp for an appetizer, two fall seasonal entrees, and dessert. We just couldn't pass up the deal. It was like getting an appetizer and dessert both for free.
The shrimp came out in a cute dish with chop sticks. It gave you the illusion that there was shrimp all the way to the bottom of the dish, but it was sitting on a bed of lettuce. There however was a lot of shrimp anyways and was so savory with just enough spicy without being to hot.
For my entree I got swordfish and pumpkin ravioli. It was my first time having swordfish and was very impressed. If you know me I am a huge pumpkin lover. I could have sat there and ate a whole place of just the amazing pumpkin ravioli, but I didn't I ate 3 and brought the other 3 home.
Brian got Bourbon grilled salmon. with green beans and garlic mash potatoes. He wasn't to impressed with his sides, nothing special about them. He did however enjoy her salmon very much.
Being how I am on my pumpkin kick I had to have the pumpkin crime brulee for dessert. It was good, but nothing to brag about. It seemed as if it had been sitting for a while due to the top not being hot.
We had a wonderful date night. We ended the night walking around Crocker Park and checking out the new stores and areas they have added since the last time we were there. After walking around we decided to get another drink at Bar Louie then headed to get Austin. It was a fun much needed date night.
