We haven’t lived here long enough, nor had the special occasion yet, to go out and have a nice romantic dinner, just the two of us. But my sweet hubby just came home tonight with the good news that he’s been offered the new job and we want to go out to celebrate tomorrow night. We don’t have a local yellowpages because we did not get a new home phone when we moved here. Each of us has our own cell phone and I just didn’t see any reason to pay for a home phone. The downside to that is you don’t get a local directory with all the ads for nice restaurants and other places you might want to go after you get settled into your new place.
So, I used the internet for a local search on fine dining and was pleasantly surprised at how many choices there are within a 30 minute drive of our new house. Of course, choosing the best place is the hard part.
At least we both agree that we want a nice American food restaurant with a good reputation for their steaks. Sometimes I like to try other nice places – especially Italian restaurants – but we haven’t enjoyed a nice steak dinner in a very long time. So I picked three local restaurants that looked good to me and gave the list to hubby – he can pick from those three and then we’ll call in the morning to make reservations for our special dinner tomorrow night.
