Date Night with the Boys!

28 01 2012

So Friday started out with a vengence.  Driving along the highway to work, late again, suddenly Mario commented that the car was slowing down.  I thought he was joking around, but needlessly to say we were stuck on the side of the road out of gas at 8:00 on a Friday.  Left arguing about whose fault it was, we waited for my instructional assistant to come rescue us.  Its so soooo good that I have such an awesome team of paraprofessionals working with me.

Since I was waiting around, I posted this status on Facebook.  About an hour later, our friend Gordon called me to make sure we weren’t still stuck on the freeway.  He asked if we wanted to do dinner.  We already were planning to go to another friend’s birthday party, but we asked both of them if Gordon could and wanted to tag along.  It was fine, so our evening was set.

Dinner was at Cibo.  This a cute little pizzeria on 5th Ave. and Fillmore St. in dowtown Phoenix.  Very chic.  Mario and I have gotten smarter when eating out.  We shared a Margherita pizza and Gordon had a Quatre Frommage pizza with proscuitto.  No pics tonight.  I took the night off!  Then all three of us shared a Nutella crepe.  YUM!!!  I do not normally like Nutella, but hot and cooked is best!  Here is the link to Cibo if anyone is interested.

Next, we were off to Vincent’s house for his birthday bash.  His house is beautiful!!!  We did not get to stay long, because we were going to see a movie across town at 9:45.  We were there long enough to sample the sangria, which was lovely!!!  I wish I had taken pictures of his house, but I’m not sure he would like them posted here for the world to see anyway! Hehe!

Finally, date night concluded with the three of us going to see The Wicker Tree at Harkins Camelview.  The Wicker Tree is the same concept as The Wicker Man, except no Nicholas Cage.  Boo.  It is set in Scottland, which is mainly why Gordon wanted to check it out.  It was a pretty good movie if you ignored some of the bad acting in it.  It is always interesting to see movies with unexpected endings.  For more info on that movie, click below.

Overall, it was such a fun night!  Except when the gas light went off again and when I was driving the wrong way down the one way street trying to find parking at Cibo.  Oh well, such is life.
