Dinner & a Movie

When you have been dating for well over a year, most couples can’t list all the movie nights they have had – in a theater.  So we consider ourselves unique. Maybe even virginal. In our 21st month of dating, we finally ventured out to dinner and a movie. To top it off, no fine dining was involved!

Dinner: Din Tai Fung, a Bellevue location of a well known Taiwan establishment

We arrived a few minutes after 5 – and Bill was shocked to see there was a very long line already waiting for a seat. Luckily, the bar looked like it would have seats soon. So I watched for seats while he headed upstairs to get move tickets. And before he reappeared, seats appeared.

As a veteran eater of Din Tai Fung, I shared my favorite dishes. Plus, we asked the bartender for recommendations. No surprise, Bill also found truffle dumplings on the menu. Five dumplings come with a healthy price tag (however our total dinner bill was very low for date night).

Movie: Argo

To the movie theater! We had chosen Argo, which was a very interesting movie for me. I am just old enough to remember the yellow ribbons and that there was something going on in Iraq or Iran. Watching the movie was a great re-learning experience. And, it stimulated many other memories from that time frame. Post movie, it made for interesting conversation (at least from my point of view).
