Dinner and a Movie, at the SAME TIME

Tonight (Friday night) hubby and I had date night.

Oh what a wonderful thing!

A great friend of mine from work volunteered to watch Hoss while we went out to dinner and a movie. That's right folks, both dinner AND a movie! And you know what is even better? We did both at the same place! We decided to try out the newest invention to hit Kentucky, the Movie Tavern.

For any of you who are from Texas and reading this, I understand there are several places like this in that part of the world, but for those of you who are unaware of such, the Movie Tavern serves dinner while you watch a movie.

Yep, that's right dinner and movie all in one! I'm all about some multi-tasking and I'm not one to pass up checking out something new, so away we went (with a bit of hesitation on hubby's part).

My review...I'll give it the benefit of the doubt since it is new. However, it can be distracting when a waitress stops to ask if you need anything or is delivering food, refilling drinks, etc in the middle of a movie (however, it beats changing a poopy diaper or getting a snack for a toddler in the middle of a movie at home). Our food order was "lost" and had to be reordered, but it's a new place and that happens in new establishments. The price was okay, competitive with other theaters and restaurants, but the food quality in our opinion was mediocre.

The convenience was a great thing. We were gone from home for only 2 1/2 hours and we had both dinner and watched an entire movie!

So, there you have it folks! Needing a fast, multi-tasking date AND you have a Movie Travern close by, check it out!
