Date night is a big deal in our house. Mal and I talk about it all day long before it happens. If you were hanging out with us, you’d probably get annoyed because we chat non-stop about it. I guess we’re just really excited about a night out together. And, of course, yesterday was no different!
We also get all dressed up and pretty ourselves for our date. Yesterday, I even went out and bought a new top. It was just $10 at a consignment shop! Score! I also got my hair cut. What do you think of my new bangs?
For dinner, Mal and I were in the mood for something light (we both ate a late lunch), so we picked Cambridge, 1 for their delicious flatbread pizzas and salads.
To start, we had a little fun with the beer menu. There were lots of fun ones that I wanted to try!
First, I ordered the Wolaver’s Organic Oatmeal Stout and then the Lagunitas Pils, which I absolutely loved. I pretty much love everything from Lagunitas. Mal does too, so we might plan a trip out to West coast to visit the brewery!
For dinner, I ordered the arugula salad with shaved Parmesan, extra virgin olive oil, and lemon juice. This salad will be recreated at home. It was excellent! So simple, yet so delicious!
Mal also shared a little bit of his pizza with me.
Clearly, we hated our meals!
Our evening concluded at the Grendel’s Den. I’m not sure Mal and I can go to Harvard Square without going there. It’s one of our favorites places. Good food, good beer, good vibe.
Mal and I found two seats at the bar and each ordered a drink. I ordered a glass of red wine, but I only drank a few sips of it. After drinking two strong beers at Cambridge, 1., I was good for the night.
