First, we went rode our bikes ~2 miles to Olde Main brewing company for dinner.
Somehow, we thought the special tonight was $4.00 pitchers, but evidently that was Tuesday and we missed it. Still, we got a pitcher of their scottish ale and their seasonal - a bourbon cask pilsner. They bottle and sell the scottie, which is super good and has this excellent insignia.
For dinner, I got the Seafood Salad, which I've had before. It's really good. Greens, pickled red peppers and onions, shrimps and scallops, and a lemon vinaigrette. Super simple. Very delicious. I also got some Potato Soup. I ordered a cup, but the fiance changed the order to a bowl so that we could split it.
The desserts at that restaurant are usually lackluster, so we decided to bike across town (~4 miles) to another restaurant, The Cafe.
The Cafe has an excellent, local menu. They are really known for their desserts and coffee, which are always amazing. We had the panna cotta and the lemon marscapone cake, and I had a glass of Sauvingnon Blanc (not local - IA wines are terrible). Both were really, really delicious, though I let the fiance finish both because they got a bit heavy after all that alcohol.
Then, we biked the long way home (~2 miles) and are safely on our couch enjoying eachother's company. The fiance announced that that was the 'best date ever', which is super sweet coming from him. He really liked biking around and getting to sample so many foods. Plus, the sun was out for the first time in weeks...though it was still really cold.
Ok, the fiance's dad is in town this weekend and I have a race, so I'll probably post on Sunday or Monday. Coming up: Detox recap, plus a definition of toxins from a science perspective, and a re-evaluation of my summer goals.
What is your favorite night out?
