February Date

A Very Merry Un-Birthday

Think The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland. February's date started out with two gift bags, The Dollar Tree store, and five dollars cash each. 

Each of us had to sneak around The Dollar Tree to buy un-birthday gifts for each other. 

I got Stephen stuff for Mardi Gras

Stephen got me stuff he knows I like. 

It ended up being goofy - as expected. Stephen got to choose our location for dinner, and he chose PotPie. Good. Call.

It's in the Westport area, and the building is small, so go early to get a good seat. They open at five. And be sure to start with the steamed mussels. You won't want to miss them.

We started out with the steamed mussels. 

We didn't even bother looking at the other menu items, it was down to a decision between the chicken pot pie or the beef and mushroom pot pie. We went with the meat and mushrooms. Delicious.

Flakiest crust ever! 

I was pleased to see that Bluestem was next door, so I managed to coerce Stephen into popping in for a drink (and some yummy fried dough)

Best drink in KC. More on that later...

Orange Fritters with Thyme Dipping Sauce. 

All in all, a fun date. Our favorite part of these monthly dates is the zero planning involved. Stephen opens his envelope the first of the month and we get our calendars out and pick a date. Till next month...
