Our Valentine's Day gift from Kai was a night of babysitting, so last night Dan and I headed out for a date night. We started at the Chihuly Museum at the base of the Space Needle. It was beautiful! I loved looking at all the colors and shapes of the glass - and was thrilled the kids weren't there. That would have been nerve wracking.
Because we went in the evening, we were given a coupon for a free appetizer from the Collections Cafe that is attached to the Museum, so we headed there for dinner. Crispy Beecher Cheese Curds, and a fantastic lamb ragout was perfect. We walked back to the car and stopped at the newest P-Patch garden, which is on top of a parking garage. It was pretty neat to see. Half the top level of the garage is dedicated to gardening. I was suitably impressed at the ingenious way of coming up with green space in a very urban area.
Our last stop was a small bar that had several kinds of Amaro. I became enamored with the liquor on our last trip to St. Louis. I'm now on a quest to find the one I like the best. So far, it's the St. Louis one - only I don't know the name of it!
It was a wonderful date night and I can't wait to do it again!! Thanks so much Kai!
