date night(s) w/tony {texas roadhouse, patrick’s bakery & cafe & b-52 burgers and brew}

Back in October when I shared THIS post, my plan was to continue posting our Date Nights thinking it might provide ideas for your own.  (Sorta like the “Coffee w/Sharon” posts from my old blog.)

But then I never posted anymore.  Oops.  So here I am again, feeling all inspired with the new year – thought I would give the “Date Night w/Tony” posts another run.

Early this month we ventured out to one of our faaaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite steak places.

Texas Roadhouse has one location in the Twin Cities metro area (Coon Rapids) and a few others on the outskirts (Duluth, Rochester, St. Cloud).  Totally worth the drive.  The New York strip is TO.DIE.FOR.

I also made reservations for us this month at Patrick’s Bakery & Cafe in Edina.

They offer full table service Friday and Saturday nights, complete with white linens and candles.

So romantic!  The service was impeccable and the food was even better than I had anticipated.

Tony ordered Filet Mignon with Shrimp and I had the Barbecue Beef Brisket Burger – both were incredibly good.  The Cream of Pumpkin Soup… a must-have if you make it over!  And the best part?

DESSERT!

Our latest Date Night took us to Inver Grove Heights with a stop first at B-52 Burgers and Brew (guided there by coupon) for dinner.

Their burger selection surprised me, giving us quite a few options.  Tony had one topped with cheese curds and mine was topped with creamy peanut butter and bacon.  The burgers were great and the fries were so-so (more a matter of taste, they had a crispy coating and I prefer them without).  After dinner we made our way over to Drac’s Pub to see some friends (The Lid Twisters) who were playing that night:

We stayed for the first set and then made our way to an impromptu gathering with friends who lived nearby.  A fun, fun night with old friends and new.

And a fun, fun month of outings with my guy.  😀
