Sometimes the need for a date night comes on in a hurry and needs to be addressed immediately. And for the good of the family, it’s really best to take that need seriously. This was just the conversation my wife and I had this week. And the strength of our family starts with the strength of us as a couple.
We managed to have our sitter watch the kids Friday night while we headed out. And we really did just head out – we had no idea where we were going or when we would be back. We knew exactly the sort of place we needed, in fact we could name it. Unfortunately it was up in the city – 85 miles away. We would need to settle on someplace a little closer to home. But we needed someplace different where we could get some new flavors, some new scenery, a touch of adventure. After driving around we settled on a Greek place we hadn’t been to, prefaced by a beer at a place across the street known for its great selection, simply called Burger. (http://www.burgersantacruz.com/) We got a couple beers - big, hoppy, floral, bready ones, and just glanced at the menu.
