Normally we do not go out on Valentine’s day because it is just such a hassle, but this year my husband asked me for a date that night and I gladly accepted. He would not tell me where we were going nor what was to happen so it was really a total surprise. We got up early Monday morning, drove into a rather large city where we had an early checkin at a extremely nice hotel, a very high up room with a fantastic view of the city. With plenty of time to explore the city we spent the day finding so many charming little places that made this city special.
That night we dressed and was off to supper where I found myself very surprised when we pulled up in front of a Italian restaurant. While we do like Italian I found myself wondering as he is a steak or bbq man, anyway the restaurant was very old school with dark paneled walls, pictures of celebs who had once visited, red tablecloths and the waiters in black pants and white shirts.
While we are not wine drinkers, beer was our drink, he ordered a Tuscany T bone steak while I settled on blackened shrimp and scallops over fettuccini with a pepper sauce, salad and a bread came out quickly and the meal was ever bit as good as one could expect. His steak was really good and should we ever return that would be my choice also. On the way out I just had to have a piece of Italian cheesecake topped with berries to go.
We got back to the hotel and decided to have a drink in the lounge, not very crowded so we found a place at the bar. The bartender turned out to be a ginger like me and it was very apparent she did know how to work a bar, very friendly and outgoing leaving you with the feeling that you was an old customer. He had his bourbon while I ordered a drink called Between The Sheets, when she sit it down she said to my husband “I think she is giving you a hint”. I never saw a man flash a smile with many teeth.
We got to the room where I went into the bathroom and put on my little black thingie that I bought at VS, well that didn’t last long as it quickly came off. Maybe the next time I’ll put it on with a girdle. Later we laid in bed, had out cheesecake, OMG, and enjoyed the lights of the city.
Damn boy you sure how how to show a girl a good time.
