Date Night

• 14 April 2008

For about a month and a half before and after a weekend getaway we tend to forego our date nights. We do this to both save money and to take care of other things in our busy lives so we CAN get away. This strategy seems to work well for us. By the time we split for the airport, we are very much ready to be together and to enjoy our precious time away.

Last weekend marked the its-about-time-we-went-out-on-a-date-again moment (Netflix nights at home excluded) so we secured a babysitter and decided to try out a new restaurant, Caffe Niche. Lucky for us they offered free live jazz too! The menu is very limited but the offerings are tasty. I would say the food is mostly Italian (at least the dinner) with a few other Mediterranean offerings mixed in for good measure. We ventured out early-ish (around 6) and by the time we left at 7:30, the entire restaurant was full. I love seeing a new {and tasty} restaurant "make it". Let's hope it sticks, unlike this little gem. Where am I to go for a delicious chocolate fix? sigh.

After Caffe Niche we headed to Barnes & Noble to research our family vacation to the City of Lights. The most important aspect of our research revolved around things to do with our kids in a not-so-kid-friendly city. Or maybe it is...I guess I am not sure. I've never been with kiddos in tow. Does anyone have any tips?

Before heading home at the early hour of 9:30 we opted for a gelato fix here. The place was packed! The passion-fruit gelato really hit the spot with a bit of coconut alongside. Yum. I'm seriously addicted to this passion-fruit/coconut duo. I find it creeping up everywhere...like here and here. Next time we decided to opt for the pint...you receive more ice cream for a cheaper price than two individual gelatos. Anyone want to come? :)
