DATE NIGHT



last friday night the stars aligned and we somehow found ourselves a babysitter. brandon had been requesting that we eat at the chevys in times square (i know), so that is just what we did.

(brandon has a history of requesting weird dinners that make me go "wah?") (i had so much more time back then to be clever!) the good news is we go through chips and salsa like professionals.

we are so rusty at this date night thing it's not even funny. but here's to getting more practice! and sure, here's to chevy's chips and salsa. they are surprisingly amazing.

the wife is obnoxious with the reverse cam on her phone, womp womp
the $5 cocoa that wasn't that great
the bryant park christmas tree! all dressed in blue.

on the subway ride home we sat right next to THE garrison keillor. it was so exciting!! the man looks like a hobo, but his voice is like buttah. he was with a person who looked sort of like steven spielberg... the whole thing was amazing.

also, don't let it alarm you, but in new york city you have to list the calories of each dish, and, well, there go the crab and shrimp quesadillas. 



i also write for babble:

  4. Haha calorie counts are so cruel. Nyc at christmas looks pretty dreamy I must say... I also must say that that scarf is rockin.

  5. That does look like fun! And no judging @ Chevy's. I used to eat there quite a bit (ahem) when I lived in SF. Oh, and buh bye crab quesadillas...

  6. AWESOME - Garrison Keillor!! I don't think I would have been able to hold it together. My hubs and I listened to his show this last Saturday night and it was broadcasted from NYC - makes sense! :)

  7. Holy guacamole, I never knew that a Quesadilla could pack that much junk in the trunk, no wonder it probably tastes like a Mexican/seafood/delicious dream...We met GK last summer in Colorado, he is just a peach!

  8. definitely dragging my guy to the space-themed restaurant in times square for his birthday. it's only sort of a joke.

  9. i can't even imagine the ridiculous scene that would ensue if i ran into garrison keillor. it would likely result in a restraining order. congratulations on your stellar display of self control!

  11. 1710 cals? oh my gosh. i wouldn't have eaten them either. actually, i probably would have told myself it was a typo, that they were actually 171 calories and ordered two.

  12. oh gosh! I cannot even tell you how jealous I am of your little garrison keillor experience! did you get the chance to talk to him? either way, what a blessing! glad you had a wonderful date night. :]]

  14. I am sooo glad somebody else finds crumbs better than magnolias. I was beginning to think I was the only gal in nyc to think so.

  15. i've always wondered what the face was that goes with garrison's voice. cool.

  16. Oh I wish you HAD sung the jingle for Beboparebop rhubarb pie - you KNOW he would have started harmonizing with you. You are so funny. I remember the first time I saw him (in St. Paul) I was a little girl and I was SO DISAPPOINTED because he is very homely. And I had imagined that he looked a lot more like Mr. Rogers.

    ICK. ICK. ICK. on the crab & shrimp quesedillas. ICK. But they are probably DELICIOUS. I would be so disgustingly skinny if every restaurant everywhere listed calories on the menu.

  17. I hate menus that list the calories on the menu. It tends to ruin my favorite dishes!

  18. Restaurant quesadillas are worth as many points in a day you can have on weight watchers... I was so sad to find this out a while back!
