|The River Cafe, Calgary, Alberta, Canada|
The wild, the crazy . . . Monday Night.
Yes indeed, that was our night to paint the town red. Well, I wore a red skirt anyway, but there was no town-painting going on. Unless you call picking up a centre channel speaker first as saucy, then wowza, we were on a roll!
Where do a romantic fiction writer and her husband go on date night you might ask? After much back and forth, and several online searches, including in the car as we were on our way to pick up that speaker, we decided on The River Cafe on Prince's Island in Calgary.
I can't even remember the last time I had been to a restaurant like this; you know, fancy. ;) I don't know what it is about great food and great company that melts away the chaos and frantic of life, but it does and it did. Those two hours were exquisite, just like the food. I stopped moving long enough to simply enjoy and be present. As much as I like to write characters who figure their life out, I'm still working on that beautiful balance of fitting in everything I love to do, and well. ;)
And just so you know, the pork tasted like candy. I'm serious, it was incredible.
What are some of your favorite places to go, date night, or otherwise?
Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Happy Date Night!
