This post isn’t going to be about Alex’s adventures in St. Pete, but as I’m spending part of my Sunday afternoon going through our stuff on Flickr, I thought I might post one of my favorite shots from his trip. Gorgeous, eh?
Last night, we went to Fort Worth for a date night. We ate dinner at the Flying Saucer, an establishment so centered around their international alcohol that I thought for a minute the waitress was going to throw us out when we said we weren’t drinking tonight. However, the food was quite good; I enjoyed a goat cheese/cranberry/walnut salad, and Alex had a buffalo chicken wrap. Then we indulged in some kind of ice cream/chocolate cake drenched in raspberry sauce.
The Bass was gorgeous, and Avenue Q was great. So, so great. We kept joking throughout the first act that we’d see a bunch of empty seats after intermission, due to the, ahem, controversial nature of the show. And sure enough, the four seats to our left were empty throughout the entire Act 2, despite the fact that one of the guys had been laughing his head off. My theory is that he’s going to get heck from his wife for laughing at all.
I’ve still got a ton of photos and content to post for the last three trips (plus earlier stuff that I’m not even going to think about at the moment)… here are two brief notes:
- I was just in Anaheim, Abilene, and Austin. What’s up with the A-town theme?
- I have now come to realize that Austin is the avacado capitol of Texas. And also has the most fantastic waiting service I have ever enjoyed. I have now made my peace with this town, and accept its eccentricities as charming (with the exception of the awful highway system, which I did not personally have to deal with on this particular trip).
