We like this bar because it has a decent beer selection (for me and Kathy), decent cocktails (for the friend from London) and decent food (for my work friend). Then Kathy and I headed back to our neck of the woods and had snacks. I do believe time alone together is important to a relationship. And time alone, with your friends. But also, time together, as a couple, with friends. It's how you integrate into each other's lives. It's also fun!
But this weekend is where the real date night comes in. I am actually usually against having date night involve any friends, or it slips away from us. But given that our friend was in from another country, I thought we could make an exception. Especially since we have a Date Weekend coming up. This weekend, we are going upstate (one word? capitalized? I need a native New Yorker to advise on this please) to go skiing and stay at a hotel. Away from chores. Away from work. Away from other people. And with each other.
Happy early Valentines day to us! I promise to post pictures of me
falling on my ass and getting stuck in a tree expertly swishing down the mountain. Sorry to say, though, no heart-shaped hot tub. We are on a budget, people.
