What, dear reader? What was that? You're just dying to know what we did last night for Date Night? Really? Well, I'd be happy to share our activities with you! What a nice request. You just can't get enough of me, eh? Okay, well, here we go:
Many of you know that Brandon works for a company called Mozy (which is now owned by EMC). Well, they have just launched a new Mac product. To announce this product, they had a fabulous party last night at the Hard Rock Cafe in Salt Lake City. Anyone and everyone was invited and welcome to attend --so we invited my sister (Michelle) and her husband. Our good friends, Ann and "B", were also planning on attending. Unfortunately, and thanks to my constantly sick children, my nephews got really sick. I'm sorry!! So, Michelle decided they'd better stay home (and it turns out they made the right decision, what with #1 getting worse last night. No fun, I tell ya'. No fun!). Changing our plans last minute, we agreed to meet Ann and B at this really, really cool restaurant before the Mozy party.
This restaurant is the only Raw Food Bar in Utah, and we were very curious to try it out. Ann and B had been there more than once and really loved it, so we figured it would be pretty good. You can read about the restaurant here. Omar himself seated us, took our order, and made our food. Can I just say WOW!? It was more than I expected, and the food was so good. So very, very good! Part of me knows, however, if we had tried this restaurant last summer, we probably wouldn't have liked it very much. Our palate has changed so much since then, and so we were ready to enjoy something green. Granted, he used a lot of olive oil, macadamia nuts, dates, etc., so the food had amazing, amazing flavor. We loved it!
[Tam and Bren? If you're reading this, the next time you come up to see us, we're taking you here! You will LOVE it!]
The Mozy party was awesome. They reserved the entire Hard Rock Cafe and had prizes (iPods, MacBooks, iTunes gift cards, etc.), free t-shirts, free food (tons and tons of food), free drinks, video games (Rock Band), live entertainment, and all kinds of great fun. We had invited my cousin and her friends to come, too, and they saved us the best table (right by all the desserts! And yes, I ate them! That's a key to weight loss --don't deprive yourself. But we'll talk about that later...). Because of all the food (and believe you, me, there was some amazing food!), we were very grateful we ate beforehand. (ooh! Another key to weight loss --be in control of your environment!) Anyway, we had a great time! It was a fab party.
Being the old folks we are, we were home by 10PM. But it was such a good night. It was fun to be out and about and I was excited for Brandon's company, too. Plus, how could it not be a good night, hanging out with Ann, B, and my cousin? I just wish my sister and BIL could have been there. We missed you, Michelle! Ah, well. Next time. Bonus points? Fab babysitter with good things to report. We'll have to use her again!
What did you do last night? Or what are you going to do tonight? Do you have Date Night?
