Date Night!

We only had two out of three boys home with us for the weekend, so we took advantage of that, and went out for dinner and a movie. I chose the Avalon Theater in Chevy Chase as I love the area around it (and we had free tickets we had won at a school auction!).

Here are some snippets of our evening out.
We got a parking spot right out front! Love the trees here.

Magruder's grocery store. A fixture in DC, known for their great prices!

A close-up of the produce. Beautiful!

Walking to dinner.

Looking down Connecticut Ave. Love the outdoor seating and dogs! It was a beautiful evening out.

Bread and Chocolate cafe. Yum! Thought we might stop for something sweet after dinner.

We ate dinner at Arucola, one of our faves. The doors were wide open, and the patio was full!

My hot date!

I know it's a no-no, but we can't keep off our iPhones, even on a date!

We started with salads. His was a watercress salad, mine was endive with a fig dressing. A little sweet and very yummy!

Then we ordered two pizzas, to share. Mine was fresh buffalo mozerella (wild mushrooms on his side), his was pesto, potato. Mine was better.

Dinner's over, ready for our movie at the Avalon: Eat, Pray, Love.

But first, a little ice-cream! Salted caramel for me, heath-pecan for him. Yum!
