Date Night

Tracy and I decided to brave the heat for our monthly Date Night and boy are we glad we did. What a fun time we had. We have wanted to try this restaurant for a long while but just hadn't made it there until now. I grew up on the North coast of California where fresh seafood was something we took for granted, who would have thought I could find a taste of home in the desert of Nevada. (Sorry the pics are a little dark but I took them as we were leaving and the sun was almost down)




Not only was the food wonderful it was a really, really fun place with great service. They used newspaper for place mats, no little whimpy dinner napkins, there was a much needed roll of paper towels, and even bibs to keep the melted butter off your shirt.





The decor was so much fun too look at and there was something different in every nook and cranny. The Shrimp boat was at our booth and the shark was hanging in the next dinning area. The whole place was lit with strings and strings of Christmas lights. We were surprised when there was a change in the music, a multi colored disco type ball started spinning and the the waitresses and waiters started dancing a conga line. So much fun to clap along with them and watch them circle the restaurant. There was also a lady doing balloon figures for the kids. These weren't your normal balloon figures, I watched for about 5 minutes as she did a mermaid for a little girl. It was truly amazing as she used different colored balloons, a red for long hair, pink for the face and body and of course green for the tail. At that point I wanted to be a little girl again so I could have a mermaid too.
What a fun place that we will be returning to again real soon! I really paid for the good time today with swollen feet and legs but Tracy made me sit all day with my feet up and they are almost back to normal tonight.
Until next time....Happy Stitching and have a Great weekend

I ate at a Joe's Crab Shack in Louisville about seven years ago and it was a lot of fun. It was sitting on the Ohio River and had a great view. Glad you had a wonderful time on your date night.

We have a "joe's" here in So Cal too. My niece works there and she says it's better than goingto the gym. Every hour the servers dance around the restaurant and grab the customer to dance with them and even up on empty tables! So much fun.
