Dinner and a movie

Saturday, we went to Rave Theaters at Town Square to see Taking Woodstock. It was our first visit to that theater, it's really nice. Good layout, comfortable roomy stadium seating, and digital projection really makes a world of difference. I think we'll venture over there instead of Red Rock to view movies from now on.

Next, we grabbed dinner and drinks at Yard House which is conveniently located right across from Rave. We each had three beers: Peroni, Stella Artois and Harp for me, and Frank had a house honey wheat, Kronenbourg 1664, and Carlsberg. I liked them all except the honey wheat. It seems I haven't acquired a taste for any sweet beer. As for dinner, we had the Spinach dip to start, how can you go wrong? That's right, you can't. It was delicious. Frank had the Roasted Turkey Melt, with swiss and pickled jalapenos, I had the Pepper Jack burger with roasted green chiles and garlic aoli. Oh so very good! Frank considered another beer for dessert, but I was content. Instead, he ordered the Kona Coffee Sundae knowing it would be right up my alley. And it was! Cold java ice cream, with hot fudge and topped with whipped cream chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts... Bliss, I tell you. Service was great throughout the meal. Total came to $82, not too shabby considering all we ate and drank.
