"The Exception of City from Sky"

I love where I live.  I truly can't imagine a more beautiful, entertaining, and enjoyable locale than the Twin Cities...we have so many different cultures represented here and so much top-notch culture!  It's an infinitely date-friendly place to live, which Drayton (the hubs) and I really appreciate, because we are a definitely date-friendly couple :)




For example, date #1057: Restaurant Week.  We decided last year to make a Restaurant Week outing our anniversary tradition.  Every year in St. Paul/Minneapolis, a number of our top rated (and top price!) restaurants offer a three-course selection of menu favourites for the flat fee of $30/person--considering that the regular tab for one person to buy an appetizer, entree, and dessert is around $90-$120, that's a steal!  What makes this an even more fun date is that you and your date can each choose a different appetizer, different entree, and different dessert from the Restaurant Week menu...and swap plates halfway through so that you end up trying six different items from the restaurant instead of three :)  And let me tell you...the service, the decor, the ingredients, the recipes, the presentation--soooooooooo delightful and delicious!!!  








Tune in next post......to see what we ate :)

  3. I LOVE going to NYC Restaurant Week...I've eaten at so many upscale restaurants that normally I'd never be able to afford :) You look gorgeous in your polka dot dress, Cambria!

  24. Restaurant week sounds like so much fun! We have a similar thing in LA but most of the restaurants have pre-fixed menus and I'm too picky to eat something that I don't get to choose, so we don't go. haha. You look so pretty on your date night! I LOVE your bag!!

  30. Holy crap I forgot how cute you're new hair cut was! Your "hubs" is adorable. Very handsome...I LOVE beards so hard! There is a similar deal at a lovely french restaurant here in Oregon called Cuvee only $25 for a three course meal. The little town where I live was on the top 10 foodie destinations so we have amazeballs food. and My boyfriend and I love to try different places. So when anyone comes to town they know who to ask:)

  43. I just skipped past your food post because awesome food gives me intense cravings, and I cannot afford $90 dinners! Anyway, just wanted to drop by and say that your past two comments on my blog have made my day :)

    P.S. Do you dress the hubs or is he capable on looking sharp on his own?

    Sincerely,
