Anniversary Dinner

EH and I have our third anniversary coming up - Tuesday to be exact! But we decided to start celebrating this weekend.

On Friday, we stopped at our favorite pre-movie spot and then went and saw Home in 3D. Because that's what a couple with no kids in their late twenties celebrating their anniversary do. 

It was really stinking cute. 

Saturday we lazed around the house, had lunch at Burge's, and I got a mani/pedi. Not a bad Saturday whatsoever!

Saturday night, we cleaned up and headed to So Restaurant. It was the first time we had tried this restaurant and I think it's safe to say we'll definitely go back. Our waiter was so much fun, the atmosphere was romantic but not stuffy, and the food was delicious.

We started off with the Fried Green Tomato Crabcake and cocktails. Bullet Rye and Coke for EH, and Frank Family Chardonnay for me.

I have a shameless obsession with fried green tomatoes and this did not disappoint. 

For entrees, EH picked the Coffee Crusted Filet Mignon.

Which was delicious, despite the lackluster plate setting. The cup was filled with fried polenta, topped with a tomato.

I went with what I usually go with if it's offered, and that was duck. 

Perfectly seared on the outside, topped with apricots. So good!

We rounded out dinner with chocolate creme brulee. I'm not much of a dessert person but this was really good. 

After dinner we headed to the Pantry and had another round of cocktails before calling it a night. My perfect date night - great food and cocktails with my favorite person.

Happy Sunday! Are you watching the Walking Dead season finale? I'm both excited and terrified.
