My husband and I much prefer "date days" to "date nights" in this juncture of our relationship. It's so much nicer to go out during the day because then we don't have to miss bath time, bed time prayers, and good night kisses. Plus, restaurants, movie theaters, and other "hot spots" are usually less crowded during the day and, as an added bonus, almost everything is cheaper too!
This Friday, we've carved out a portion of our day and we're going to head to Outback Steakhouse - a restaurant chain that boasts 800 restaurants across the country and 950 locations worldwide. Outback prides itself on "fresh food prepared from scratch, bold flavors, and top-quality ingredients" as well as "outstanding employees and an unsurpassed commitment to service."
The Outback just celebrated their 20th birthday and, to celebrate, they've introduced a number of special menu items that are only available through the end of April. I think I might try the Chargrilled Tuscan Rib Eye (served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed veggies) and perhaps we'll split a Chocolate Thunder From Down Under (a fresh-baked pecan brownie and rich vanilla ice cream) for dessert.
If you'd like try out the new menu items or to indulge in the Outback's signature Bloomin' Onion, you can search for one in your neighborhood on the Outback website. If you prefer to eat at home or on the run, there's always Curbside Take-Away to consider (you can even pre-order online!).
Chime In: Where is YOUR favorite place to go on a date? Do you prefer "date days" too or am I the only one?
