Last night we had another date night, because both of us are going out of town this weekend separately, so we needed to fit in some special time during the busy week. This time, it was my turn to plan the entire date, and I had fun getting to doing so :) I picked a restaurant I knew he wanted to try, his favorite dessert, and a movie that I figured both of us would enjoy. (Although I definitely enjoyed it wayyy more than he did!)
First, we went to dinner at Monk's or Well's Brother's - whichever you prefer... They actually go by both names, and I can't figure out which one is official and which one is a nickname, but most people actually refer to it by Monk's, so that's what we're gonna go with here. Neither of us had ever been here before, and so it counts as new restaurant #3 in my goal of 6 before my birthday in January! They are famous for their burgers and the crazy toppings and combinations that go along with those burgers. So of course that's what we had to get...
And guys?! I ate a PB & J burger!! I know it sounds incredibly strange and weird, but it was actually one of the best things I've ever tasted. Seriously people. I had read their menu online earlier in the day and saw The Lipsmacker, and was a little intrigued/confused. And then when we sat down, the waiter said it was actually one of their most popular, and people always love it. That peaked my curiosity even more, and I knew I had to give it a go. And I'm soooo glad I did! Because that baby was delicious. The bacon was a little chewy/too crispy/a bit weird, so I took it off, and it was just as good (if not better) without it. Oh, and the jelly was strawberry! I was expecting grape for some reason, but I think the strawberry was definitely a better option for this.
When looking at the menu online, I guessed which one Jeff would most likely choose, and I was right! His was The Mulhauser, and it had chili, cole slaw, onions, cheddar cheese and mustard. I tried his and it was really good also, but I still liked mine better! He tried mine as well, and he also loved the PB & J too.
After dinner, I took Jeff to Bruester's to get him some ice cream, because I know how much he loves him some ice cream! I was too full, so I didn't get any, but I did have a bite of his mint chocolate chip, and it was yummy.
Then we went to go see Pitch Perfect! Can we just all stop a minute and talk about how awesome that movie was?! Yes, of course it's kind of corny and cheesy (and Jeff said too estrogen-filled...), but it was also so funny! And the singing! I loved it, and it gave me goosebumps a couple of times. I definitely want to see it again in a month or so when it goes to the "cheap theater," oh and I'll probably want to own it someday too. In the meantime though, I totally plan on memorizing every word and note on that soundtrack, and having myself an acca-sing-along every morning on the way to work... (do y'all see what I did there?!)
Anyways, it was a great date night. Boyfriend + unique and delicious burgers + an awesome movie = a good time.
