Last night, my husband and I actually managed to go out for the entire evening - on a work night, no less!
I'd gotten premiere passes to Last Holiday, so we figured we might as well start by taking in a free movie. We got there earlier than necessary, so we ate popcorn and chatted while we waited for it to start. It turned out to be better than the commercials had led us to expect. Although any movie that has Queen Latifah, LL Cool J and Gérard Depardieu - really, what's not to like?
After the movie, we went to one of our favorite restaurants and had a fairly quick dinner. We got there at 9:30 and it was only open until 10:00, so we didn't want to overstay. Yes, Waiter Rant has made me an even more conscientious diner than I was before.
Finally, we went to a club to see a dance/funk band play. My husband knows most of the band members, so we talked with them as they ended their break, then stayed to watch them play until midnight. If it had been a Friday, I think we'd have stayed until they finished at 1:00 a.m.
I have a busy weekend planned, but not much of it involves the hubby, so it was nice to get to go out on the town. We'll have to do this more often.
