date night

yes, from time to time, jozjozjoz and i have date night. one night where we have dinner in a restaurant instead of in front of our computers, attend a concert or show or something, and then return home to sit in front of our respective computers until we are crosseyed and have to go to bed so we can get up and go to work the next morning.

ok, so this happens once every three or four months. we suck at date night.

but tonight we actually had dinner together at ciudad downtown and went to varekai.

dinner was delicious, we started with Argentine Empanadas–wild mushroom with chipotle, and Swiss chard with tomatillo and a salad of Romaine Hearts with chile strips, green plantain croutons, and cabrales blue cheese vinaigrette. our main course was the Slow Cooked Beef Shortribs with a panca bbq sauce, red yam puree, and red cabbage. although jozjozjoz wasn’t too excited by the red yam puree.

then we had pretty good seats to varekai, and aside from the kid behind us who kept kicking my chair, it was a really enjoyable experience. i can’t decide if i liked the aerial acts best or the acrobatics or the music. the vocalists they had were amazing. i wish i had read more about the story before i went, so i could more fully understand what was going on, but on the whole i recommend this show to everyone. and for those of you who haven’t seen any of cirque du soleil’s productions, yes, you must see at least one in your lifetime–it’s not your average circus!
