Diamond Jubilee

This weekend the Man friend and I got together and did a little patio/rooftop hopping on Sunday afternoon. With the skies clearing up and the threat of rain gone, we walked over to Brit's to enjoy the nice weather. As we were walking up, they had British flags strung over the sidewalk patio and on the rooftop. We were kind of surprised when we got upstairs and saw a stage set up and dozens of people relaxing on the grass. They were having a Diamond Jubilee Garden Party, so we decided to grab a pint and find a place on the rooftop lawn. We listened to one band play, they kind of looked like the Scooby-Doo gang, and decided that since the sun was really breaking through the clouds, we would listen to a few songs from the next band. It was pretty neat to be able to sprawl out and enjoy some live music and a cold drink.

As we decided on what to do for dinner we made a quick detour at Crave to check out the rooftop and on our way there stumbled upon a restaurant that was advertising a 'Date Night' dinner special. That triggered my memory that Cafe Lurcat has a Sunday Date Night special and it just so happened to be one of the restaurants we were considering for dinner. We wandered over to Cafe Lurcat and grabbed a table on the patio. It was a perfect night to be sitting out with my Man. When our server came with the menus we asked about the Date Night special and to our surprise we each got a starter, entree, dessert and then shared a bottle of wine, all for just $50! I started with the apple, cheese and chive salad, he had the carpaccio, for entrees I had the flank steak and he had the pork, and for dessert I had a chocolate cake and he had mini donuts. We shared off each others plates and had an all around great evening.

On Saturday night I had a little girls night out at Toby Keith's in St. Louis Park and I was so excited to wear my cowboy boots out!
