mini date night

The hubs and I went out for a little dinner last night. I've been wanting to try to get out a little more, and I came up with a brilliant idea of how I can achieve this. Go LOCAL, spend little TIME, spend little MONEY. I tend to forget all of the great little restaurants tucked here and there, in our neighboring towns. I'm on a mission to try these paces, some of them, for the first time. It's a great way to get in some "alone time", a mini date, with my hubby. Here's the thing: when I get the itch to have date night with my hubby, I tend to agonize over details like: where, when, cost, and fun factor. I set my expectations too high. Date night for us is pretty rare and so I guess that's why I try to make it special. So, instead of making date night a rare occasion, I've decided to make it semi frequent, close to home, and 2 hour increments....give or take. I've also decided to take advantage of the little "gems" in our neighboring towns. There may not be a lot in each little town around here, but each little town does have a precious few. The few that have stood the test of time because they are "mom and pop" places with good eats! So, our first mini date last night went great! I loved it. It was sweet, nice and to the point. We were gone about an hour and a half and it was just right and enjoyable. I'm liking this!

    1. Hi, thanks for stopping and commenting! I really appreciate that. All of a sudden, I am so into dining as locally and "mom and pop" as I can. I really want to post about each experience with each place we visit.

  2. Being a Philly girl I am honored that you chose Philly Originals as your first mini date. Are the owners from Philly? I hope you got a decent hoagie or cheesesteak. So many people claim to be "Philly" but really aren't.

    It looks like a cute little place though.

    I think your idea of mini dates is a great one!

    1. Hi Kathy! The owner is from Philly...I did order some extras on my sandwich though....like lettuce and tomatoes. My hubby just stuck with the meat and cheese. I really love their food!! We both ordered chicken...but now I am feeling guilty! hahaha! I need to honor you and go back and order a cheese steak!
