Earlier this week, I made a reservation for a nice Valentine’s dinner up at Firebox Restaurant in Hartford. It’s supposed to be pretty good and was recommended by a friend. We had a reservation for 9PM. Since I had never been to this restaurant, I didn’t really know what to expect. I heard there was valet parking, side-of-the-street parking or a parking lot close by. For some reason, the whole thing made me a little nervous, and I was kind of looking for an out. I didn’t want to park on the side of the street up in Hartford in some area I had never visited. Perhaps during the day sometime on a weekend, but not at 9PM.
We were sitting at the kitchen table this afternoon, when all of the sudden a great idea popped in my head. I said, “Hey petunia pumpkin girl, why don’t we just go back to Shrine (down at MGM Grand at Foxwoods) for Valentine’s day? We had an awesome time there.” She replied, “This is why I love you, Grand Master Jay.”
So, we are going to Shrine for dinner. There is a little skip in my step because we get to walk around again and this time, we are going to walk next door to Foxwoods to check it out. I have never been to Foxwoods, so you can be sure I will bring my camera. I think I might just share the whole experience with you.
Is anyone else going out for St. Valentine’s day? If so, where are you headed?
