Date Night with Terry
Friday night Terry and I had a nice impromptu date night together. We tried out Fox Sports Grill in Scottsdale for a casual dinner (my idea). Terry got to watch a little bit of the NHL Finals on a flat screen TV just about 5 feet away directly in front of our table while we were eating. We decided it would be a fun place to go to watch the Suns or another big game with friends. The menu prices are varied and include many reasonably priced items, so we would definitely go back again. For this night we were mainly trying to find something relatively quick and easy since we were planning to go to a movie.
After dinner we went to see The Taking of Pelham 123 on the big screen at the Cine Capri.
After watching the previews on TV, I was concerned that this would be more intense and violent than I usually like to see, but since it was Denzel Washington, I agreed to give it a try. It had it's tense moments, but the violence wasn't quite as heavy or graphic as expected, so overall the movie was pretty good. Well done, with some excellent actors...Denzel Washington, John Travolta, James Gandolfini and others.
When we came home it was so gorgeous outside that we decided to sit out back and enjoy the beautiful weather. It's hard to believe, but with high temps in the low 90's during the day, it makes the evenings absolutely perfect. So we took a couple of candles, chairs and glasses of wine out back and relaxed in the quiet breezy yard under the starlight.
What a gift to spend an amazing night with my favorite friend in all the world!
