Date Night

Yay, I'm glad the weekend is here. Today, I found tiny, bite-sized chocolate cupcakes complete with a pearl on each. Too cute to eat (NOT!). I only bought six. Ya think they'll last until Sunday?

The hub and I had a date night tonight. We hardly ever get out by ourselves and it was nice. We went to the pub around the corner and had dinner (and a pint).

I'm not sure if it's all of Tennessee or just Middle Tennessee, but a few months' back the restaurants had to decide 1) If they allowed smoking in their establishment, it had to be 21 and over or 2) No smoking and anyone can come in. Well, of course, our little pub went with the smoking so we can't take the kid with us any longer. I love their food, but it's rare that the hub and I go out without the kid. So tonight was just us. We got in before the crowds arrived and got a seat away from the bar area (where everyone is smoking).

The hub and I have been anticipating the new Coen brothers' film Burn After Reading. It opened tonight so we even got a movie in! I never go to the movies, hardly. Like most Coen Bros. films, I need to see it a couple of times before I can appreciate their humor. I loved watching all scenes filmed in Georgetown though. I looked for our old row house on Q Street (that we rented when we were first married), but it never appeared. Oh well. It was fun seeing my old stomping grounds regardless. And who doesn't love George? The thought of him running around DC while I wasn't there just makes me crazy jealous! ha.

It seems so early yet it's already after 10 p.m. I told you I wasn't used to going out! Guess it's mamma jamma time. I have a feeling I'll be up late tonight. (Probably should have skipped the coffee at dinner time.)

Hope everyone stays safe in Texas with Ike approaching. That thing is huge. Scary stuff.

My son and I were just saying that we were looking forward to the new Coen Bros. movie too. Clooney's is so perfectly suited to their films. Sort of dry, but with a twinkle in his eye.

Glad you and the Hub had a nice time out.

You can smoke in some places there? I thought it wasn't allowed anywhere. It's so nice here now without all of those fumes.

Nice cupcakes! Here, it is now forbidden to smoke in any public establishment...

Cheers,

Did you save me one of those cupcakes???????? If you're like me, they didn't last long! lol I'm so glad to hear that you had such a lovely time out with your hubby. All of our restaurants, bars, malls, etc are smoke free here. It's been like that for a few years now...you can imagine how the smokers are NOT liking it but they seem to be adjusting. I've seen previews of that movie...if it's got George and Brad in it, it's gotta be good! hehe xoxo

You can't smoke anywhere here. They banned restaurants and then later the bars. And the latest are the casinos to get banned. It sounds like you have a lovely evening.

Date night is a fun thing. I've always loved Friday nights for that sort of specialness. Everyone in my family has date night on friday. Glad you and the "Hub" got some time together. What a pretty cupcake. You have a sweet tooth..or is it a chocolate tooth...just like me. I just had chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

Take care Rosy!

Hi Rosa, Glad you enjoyed my speech. I WAS wearing a pink dress and I had to hire a team of makeup artists and hairstylists too. Can you tell fame wouldnt go to my head LOL! Hope you enjoyed your night out, it sounds very romantic. Did you ever see the Michael Caine film from the early 1970's Get Carter? It was all filmed in my hometown (Newcastle I mentioned the other day)one of the doorways they filmed in at some pretty grubby flats was Mr Kittens aunties house. She didnt get to meet Mr Caine and was paid a tiny amount of money to not use her front door until they had finished filming. Thats Mr K's claim to Im fame! Im guessing there are noooo chocolate cupcakes left!! X

Wait - no pictures of dinner? Guess I'll just have the pint then. I can't wait to see that movie - George in Georgetown - oh yeah!!! Anywhere George is, is Georgetown I'm guessing.

I've been looking forward to seeing that, too. Sounds like a terrific evening -- everyone needs a date night! Especially with dinner at a pub and a Coen movie!
