A couple of weekends ago, I went on a really romantic date.
And I mean, really, really romantic.
It involved champagne….
Lots of loving eye contact… good conversation…
Oh, and the best date ever…
My friend, Lauren!
Well, you know what they say about assuming. Oh well! Lauren was more fun than some dumb boy anyway, right?
Anyway, Pop Champagne is on the pricey side, so we did things our own way. Instead of spending the whole deal on dinner, we figured we’d spend it on what they’re known for (champagne and dessert) and we went the classy route beforehand by picking up slices of pizza around the corner first. 😉
Worth it! And FYI, that pizza was fantastic. Best pizza I’ve had in California (which isn’t saying much, but you know what I mean).
When we did head over for our reservation, we each started with a flight of champagnes.
Lauren got the “Pretty in Pink” and I got the “Around the World.” Because, you know, Lauren’s pretty and I’m worldly. Or something.
We also ordered, as you saw the above, the Meyer Lemon Tart. We got it mostly because it came with basil ice cream, which my friend Robyn had recommended.
The tart was lovely but the basil ice cream took it to another level. While we both sort of felt like we were eating pizza ice cream when we ate the ice cream alone, we loved it with the tart.
We spent most of the experience taking silly pictures of
the champagne each other.
Ahh, we’re fun.
It was a lovely date. Right up there with the last romantic date I had.
Hmm… maybe I should get a boyfriend, huh?
