Hot Date Idea

If you're like me, sometimes you just want to break out of the old dinner and a movie date night routine.  Not that I'd ever complain about food I didn't cook and something besides college football on the screen in front of me, but with Valentine's Day coming up in a month or so I've been looking out for something different and romantic for a date night.  

I thought of deep sea fishing in the Atlantic, pottery painting at an art studio, or maybe a trip in a hot air balloon over the White House, but then I remembered that Glen's allergic to seafood, the two of us together have negative art skills, and that they shoot down anyone who gets too close to the President's abode.    Soooo....I'm back to square one again.

That's when I got this great idea!  Let's do something completely unexpected.

Let's  go to a gussied-up  fast food joint that's decorated all romantic like.

Seriously, the website says it's sure to  "Wow your special someone with tableside service, flowers, and candlelight, in a place made famous for late night cravings..."

Square shaped hamburgers, deep-fried french fries,  and heart shaped doilies....can't you just feel the love?

And if you're still undecided about the whole thing, I hear they'll even serenade you with the famous theme song from the 1980's while you eat:

(sung to the tune of Frere Jacques)

White Castle,
White Castle,
Their hamburgers are soggy,
Fed 'em to my doggy,
He died young.
He died youuuuuuuuuung.

I'm feeling all steamy eyed just thinking about it.

Sure brings back a lot of memories of life in the Twin Cities.

Classy place!

This is AWESOME. If V-Day wasn't on a Sunday, I would soooo do this as the biggest surprise-and biggest joke-for Ryan. He loves that greasy joint.

As a rule, he is not allowed within 50 feet of me for the 24 hours after he eats there, and must use the basement bathroom only.

Mmmmm, sliders!

That exudes tacky. Where is it? I wanna go:)

Karey and I were hoping for a quiet romantic evening at White Castle, but now you have gone and advertised it on your blog, the place is sure to be packed. Karey (or anyone else for that matter) can not fully be integrated into the Crain family, until they have eaten and gotten sick at White Castle.

Sign me up!

Since I don't think there are any White Castles in the DC area, maybe we should all combine our resources and open our own franchise. Just the Valentine's dinner promotion alone is sure to make it worth our while. ;)

None in the DC area? My day is ruined, truly.

New Jersey's our best option. Maybe get some tickets to Wicked on Broadway while you're up that way eating your romantic dinner and make it a really nice date.
