Fun Weekend

We had such a fun weekend. We actually got away both nights without our kids and it was fabulous! Friday night the tax department at Doug's work had a belated Christmas party/pre-tax season hurrah. We had a yummy dinner at Carrabba's and then went to see these guys.

We were oh so lucky to be there when they featured this guy.
I know that you're all so jealous. It was pretty funny to see him there. If you haven't seen the Thrillionaires before I recommend going to one of their shows. They perform every Saturday night. The first half of their show is an improv play and the second half is an improv musical. They were both hillarious. They're doing a benefit concert on Feb.2 with Mindy Gledhill to benefit Nie Nie and her family. They had her sing a number too and she was pretty good. I'd recommend the concert.
Last night my brother was in town and it happened to be his birthday and so we went to this new restaurant in Provo to celebrate.It was fabulous. I recommend this place as well. It's a little pricy but it's totally innovated and gourmet so I highly recommend it. They serve mocktails too so that's kind of fun. Doug got a Mango Mojito which was yummy and I ordered a Hot and Cold. It had a hot lime drink on the bottom and cold coke on top. I don't know how they did it but it was incredible. My dad and brother ordered Lychee martinis. We got some Dueling Edemame (one was sauteed with bacon and the other was a pinapple orange something) for an entree and it was delicious. I ordered the pan seared salmon that came with mashed potatoes, a watercress and radish salad, and a citronelle sauce. Doug had a fettuchini alfredo with asparagus that looked yummy. My dad ordered tuna which looked divine, my mom had delcious scallops with coconut rice cakes, and my brother had tuna rolls. For dessert we shared fried chocolate pudding and hazelnut soup. It was all delicious. Sorry for the details. Can you tell I like food? It really was a fun place and was hard to believe we were still in Provo. Next time I'll take pictures of the amazing presenations. Anyway, we hope you all had a fabulous weekend too and a happy holiday tomorrow!

I've been to that Spark place twice for beverages and desserts...but I've been warned that the food is teeny tiny. As in be prepared to shell out big bucks and then stop at Wendy's on the way home. Did you guys think there was enough to fill you up? It sounds good!

Food, food, food. Yum! Can I tell you that we drove 45 minutes yesterday to our NEAREST Carrabba's, only to find that they didn't open until 4:00pm (we were there for lunch at 1:00). What a disappointment! I'm telling you this so you'll be grateful for your proximity to Carrabba's. Oh, how we crave it. Maybe I'll have to try that Chicken Bryan recipe you posted last year . . .

Funny thing is, my companion Krista is producing that benefit concert. Should be excellent.
