Date Night

Date nights in the Bean Town are always rockin'. There's just so many choices of fun things to do, places to go, things to see.

Or not.

But our date night last night was fabulous!

We started out at the fabo dollar movies. Where the movie tickets cost $2 a piece. Doesn't make much sense to me, but it's cheap!

Their pops cost $4 for a 22-oz, so we supplemented with our beverages of choice from the gas station. Shhh... don't tell.

We saw Larry Crowne, with Tom Hanks & Julia Roberts. It was cute. We're thinking it was geared to the older generation because the theater was filled with couples 50+. Either that or we're the only youngens' who take advantage of the dollar movies. 

After the movie, we motored on over to my new favorite place in town, Pete's Ice Cream.

Trying to escape the picture... haha didn't work!
Their soft serve is the best soft serve I've ever had. I got a cookie dough & Oreo avalanche, made with chocolate ice cream. Yummmmm. They have lots of hard dip flavors that are equally delicious as well.

My Business Man had a chocolate raspberry shake. It was gone by the time we got home. Total bill for the two ice creams? $5.25.

So, total cost of our date night - $4 for the movies, $3 for the sodas, and $5.25 for ice cream. Night of fun for just $12.25? TOTAL WIN! :)

After a sweaty 8-mile 'long run' this morning, we're off for an fun day trip! Happy Saturday!

Our date night this week was not cheap at all. We also went to see a movie, Car 2! I think tickets were around 11 us dollars a piece, BUT it was in 3D, so that makes it worth it right? And Korean movie theaters are WAY more comfy than American ones. And we got stuck in the elevator on the way up to the theater and the way down. I was acting like buddy the elf, pushing all the buttons. The hubs told me to stop, then he tried and did the exact same thing! The elevator only went to some floors and not others. I say all of that to say, we had some free entertainment before the movie :) Yeah for date nights!
